Well, not exactly me, but one of my bags is a cover girl. Yep, that little cutie clutch on the cover of the Spring 2010 issue of Stitch magazine is MINE!! I always feel a little weird about tooting my own horn, but if there's anyone I want to share this with, it's most certainly y'all. It's killed me not to share this news, which I've known about for a few months. Having projects in publications is nothing new for me (always thrilling - it never gets old), but making the cover is even more exciting. I can't wait to get my hands on an issue!!!
If you've read my blog for a while, I'm sure you'll see the evolution of this clutch - from this to this to what you see above. It's funny how that works out, at least I think so. Truthfully, I'd like to thank y'all for making this happen. If it weren't for your comments, encouragement, and inspiration I'm not sure that I'd keep making variations of a theme and be at the point in my 'crafting career' (is that such a thing?) where I am now. Never in a million bazillon years did I ever dream that I'd have sewing projects published in books & magazines. I've come a long way from the 'Things to Make' section of Highlights!! I owe it all to this little ole blog and the wonderful, supportive blogging community. Thanks, friends!
How about a give away? Would you like a copy of this issue? Just leave a comment and I'll throw your name in a hat for a copy of the magazine plus some other goodies. I'll leave comments open until sometime next week then draw a name (don't you like how specific I am?). Good luck!!
***winner to be announced soon!
