dreams do come true...

 this week was a week where some of the secrets i have been hoarding have been spilling out...


the week started with my tumbling tinsel piece being featured in the fat quarterly scraps issue.
i really enjoyed devising this little quilt, using up precious scraps from previous projects.
i just wish i had had time to make a bigger version, but i guess we shall just put it on the ever growing to do list.



on friday my pixelated quilt, that i had been working on at the end of last year, achieved star status as this month's issue of love patchwork and quilting.


i obviously knew it was coming out, but to see my quilt and my name on the front cover of this fab mag was such a thrill! i am still recovering from seeing it!



and lp&q have done such a beautiful job on it. in fact they have done a stunning job on the whole magazine...the best edition yet i think. seriously if you haven't bought or subscribed to this new magazine yet, you really should.


i am very very proud of this quilt. 
i am very proud that it is on the front cover of a mag. and i am very proud of it being the first double size quilt i have made.
here's to many more of both!


this is definitely the year of hard work paying off and dreams coming true...

...and here's to seeing the big one coming true very very soon!
