Gorgeous Garments

Only a couple of weeks ago, as the new issue of Quilter's Connections magazine was about to go to print, Heather (the editor) emailed me.  It was a last minute thing.  She had a feature article done called "Gorgeous Garments" and after-the-fact, she came across photos of my prairie dress on the internet.  Heather wrote, "if you can send me a good jpeg, I'll add you!".  Yes ma'am!  ; )  How exciting!  With lightening speed I did just that.  With equal lightening speed,  it has already landed in my mailbox!

HOW DID THEY DO THAT?


Here it is!  It's in a spread of many beautiful garments.


(Side note:  See!!?  This is why you should all blog!)  Thank you so much QC magazine!  Look what else I found in the 'Scrap Bag' mail at the beginning of the magazine...


Sweet!  You can head over to The Needle & Thread Network to see what people are up to by clicking HERE.  If that isn't incentive to get blogging your stitches, I don't know what is.  ; )

That dress is breath-taking! And congrats on getting published on paper. I'm trying to work down my bucket list and have stopped buying quilt (and other) magazines some years ago, but perhaps I ought to cave in for quilter's connection?
