292: one small step….
It seems like that every step that I have been taking to being a “professional” in the world of quilting and textile arts has been small, teeny, barely noticeable, and sometimes backwards……. had you told me that everything I have been doing in the last 3 years or so, I wouldn’t have imagined the path to this day…..even though this Particular Day, I did imagine…but certainly did not know how it would come about…
Yes, that is a contract..
a contract to write a book!! Note….it says “AUTHOR” above my name!
See, I have wanted to do this very thing for at least 10 years now I think…but one thing after another happened or didn’t happen, and then the dream went into a virtual loop, flowing through my head and back out again….and this book that I am beginning has had it’s share of pitfalls already as I pitched it to various publishing houses. But the first couple places just didn’t “fit” right…..
but finally I found the right spot and couldn’t be happier about it. Alicia’s Attic is a small publisher in Colorado, and pretty well known with traditional quilters. I mostly hang with the mods, so we think the combo will be good for both of us.
This will take awhile, and you probably won’t hear another peep out of me regarding this actual project for quite some time, but I just wanted to tell you …. and even though most of you I have never met in person, I want to thank YOU for all of your encouragement along the way in the past…I am going to need you in the future too, so I hope you stick around for the outcome of this particular adventure…
and yeah, I will probably throw some sneak peeks along the way….teeny ones at least….
Thanks for coming along with me as we see where the Blue Nickel Studios go next….
Peace out, my friends, Piece out….
P.S. I wonder how much trouble I just got myself into….
