WOW. Wow!!

I'm still waiting for the postal strike to end so I can get my box of goodies from A Needle Pulling Thread in Ontario.  In the mean time, a little birdie told me that it's out on the stands.  I couldn't wait!!  So I headed out to McNally Robinson's Booksellers with my youngest boy, and sure enough, there it was, front and centre on the magazine shelves!!  WOW!

Woohoo!  I can't get over it.  I had to buy it.  My mother in law is coming on Sunday from Edmonton and I'll be passing this copy on to her I think.  (More are coming in that box I mentioned.)  I sat outside on this lovely sunny day to check out the article in this Summer edition.  All I can say is, 'WOW'. 

The pattern continues on the next three pages.  It's quite the spread!  ANPT - Thank you so much!  It really looks fabulous.  I'm in awe.  It's a simple quilt with straight forward instructions.  It's my third pattern I've ever written up.  Patterns are not my forte, so this was my way of challenging myself.  Boy did it ever pay off.  Now to get the mail moving so I can put more kits together. 

I won't show you all the details, because it is copywrited.  You can purchase the magazine online here.  However, I think they'll let me show you this little snippet.  It's pretty funny.  They made me do it.  You'll have to squint to catch it all.

Another World.  That will date me!  hehe

The give-away for this will happen once that box arrives. 

Have a GREAT weekend!!

Thanks for letting us know that it's finally here. I went to McNally last Sunday but they didn't have it yet. I'll make a trip back now
to get it.

Couldn't happen to a nicer girl (... is that PC now? I'm never quite sure anymore)

Congratulations Monika!!! That is very exciting. You're a cover girl!! I was a Y&R addict for several years in high school. Thank goodness I found the cure and got off daytime TV before it was too late.
