Would you believe that I stayed in my jammies past 11am? And that I’d still be in them now if it weren’t for the fact that I do have to run some errands, and though I’m sure others have gone through the “drive through” with their PJ’s on..it ain’t happening here!
I drug myself to the mailbox after I got myself dressed and found that a long awaited package all the way from AUSTRALIA had shown up and was waiting for me!
We’ve had this project under wraps for a long time, and I’m tickled to announce that it is here, it is hitting the news stands ((Well, at least in Australia, I’m not sure how many US Quilters subscribe, but I’m sure I am about to find out)) and I’m SO TICKLED!
You see, I have an 8 page “spread” in this issue! It’s # 97, Vol 12-6 and it just was released on June 2nd. The whole issue focuses on the color BLUE, and I’ve got a quilt on the cover……and a nifty “Australian Exclusive” teaser:
And when you open up the inside…..WHOOOWHOOOO!
Now I’ve never been to Australia…it is on my list of “OH PLEASE LET ME GO THERE SOMEDAY!!” But I can say that my quilt has been hung over a fence in a pasture ((In Australia!!)) with a horse trailer in the background! :cD
Is this enough of a teaser for you? The quilt is named Jamestown Landing, and there is a bit of history included in the article as well. I love two color quilts, and blue and white are my favorite.
I’ll do my best to help you find out where you can order this issue ((I don’t know if it is available on Amazon, does anyone know??)) and ---- ***drum-roll*** ----In the box with the quilt, as it is being shipped back to me….are some EXTRA copies of this issue and I’m going to do a giveaway right here on the blog!
Click HERE for a view of the distribution flyer...you can find who might have it in your area!
I’m not sure yet when. I need to be here to do it, and the BOX hasn't arrived yet, and I’m headed to Florida on Thursday/Friday…..so we are winging it by ear. Just stay tuned and you’ll know when the give away starts.
See those sashing units? Uhhuh! Get your strings ready! You are going to need them!
And with that…I’m back to being lazy. I’ve done one load of laundry. I DID bleach-wash my dirty running shoes, and they are on the back deck drying in the sun. I may piece some. I may nap some more. I may putz around in my email. Or not. Today is just “optional”! And I’m liking it that way!
