disappearing nine patchThank you Sew Mama Sew for featuring one of my quilts as the quilt of the day today on your wonderful blog. The response has been incredible, absolutely incredible. If you've found me because of Sew Mama Sew please relax, enjoy, and say hi, and thanks for stopping by.

I was approached to be featured on the blog about 6 weeks ago. All month long I've been watching the awesome, beautiful quilts and have been so inspired ... but hadn't seen mine in there anywhere. As it was almost the end of the month I thought the quilt had been cut from the line-up, so was very excited to see my little quilt there today. Untitled-3

The quilt featured is one I made toward the end of summer for a new nephew, the son of Jason's sister. This precious picture of him was taken a few months ago. We haven't seen him since he was a newborn but knowing his siblings I'm betting he's really cool and as cute as can be.

Because I'm Me was also on tv today.

The television interview was on a local morning show about an arts and craft show we're in this weekend and, towards the end of the interview (which wouldn't play on my computer), Because I'm Me was mentioned and a few of the items I'll have for sale at the show were shown. Because I'm Me got, at best, 1.5 seconds of exposure, but I'm sure it'll propel my new career and the line will soon be carried in all the chic baby boutiques in the trendiest cities. Well, maybe not so much, but it's all fun!
