273: Shangri La Snow……
I thought this quilt would never get published…..there is such a long time between when I send a quilt to a magazine and when they are actually published. I remember working on this in the heat of summer….well, what little heat we had this summer. So anyhoo…..here is my friend Paula Prass‘s Woodland Delight line in my quilt “Shangri La Snowflake” I designed and made it for Quilter’s Newsletter December/January issue….(I apologize for blogging so late about it, I didn’t realize the issue had been out for awhile when I got the quilt back…)
And then my version showed up on the back page of the instructions. I was happy to have my quilt in the magagine, but I was a little sad that my original didn’t get a bigger photo. …. but that is how things go sometimes, you know?!
I wish I had time to chat a little longer today, but I my mind is swirling with all that I have to do…..
…… and I am feeling bad, as I just finished a none too fun Fatherly lecture complete with yelling and crying…..and that was just me…..I know sometimes in blogs, there is a pressure to have everything all nicey-nicey…..but well….sometimese life if not that formulaic…..so…yeah….it wasn’t the best morning here at the Blue Nickel…I am sure things will be okay….but the morning just wasn’t much fun….
In fact, already my kids have forgiven me for the yelling bit….see that is leftover from my upbringing….and unfortunately I haven’t fully overcome that aspect.
Probably more info than anyone really wanted here, but what’s done is done…and like I said things are alreay getting better…..
If only I could find some minions now, to help with all of the rest of my to do list…..
Hope your day is going well….thanks for stopping by….I promise I will keep the next few posts all Nicey-nice, ust for putting up with this one. 🙂
