I'M PUBLISHED

How exciting
I sent a copy of a quilt I made using a pattern from Australian Patchwork and Quilting to the magazine and in this months issue there is a picture of the quilt I made for my cousins little girl
And not only was my quilt published but I won a six month subscripyion to the magazine
I had just renewed my subscription too so will be getting the magazine for a while to come
Only problem was they put my name as Irene instead of Illene
Oh well I won,t let the fame go to my head because I'm incognito it seemsPosted by Picasa

Congratulations! That's so exciting! I had a photo of mine published once but they neglected to give me credit for it. I guess some of us just aren't meant to be famous! LOL
