In the colder weather I have not been making the trip out to the mailboxes – dang I should have picked an apartment closer to the street but then I wouldn’t have the woods right behind me. Besides – it’s usually just bills in the mailbox anyway so no need to collect them every day. 🙂
But sometimes there is something fun…… like the advance copies of the March/April Quiltmaker issue that have probably been sitting there all week. I had forgotten they should be coming around this time so it was a fun surprise.
And inside…. Spinning Pinwheels. It’s always interesting to see what Quiltmaker names the designs since some I don’t have names for or they change the name. It was even more surprising since I thought they were using a different one of my designs for this issue. A bit of a snafu in communications since when I was writing the blurb that shows up in the magazine next to my photo, they sent me the image of the other quilt and that’s the design I was referring to when writing that blurb. Luckily, what I wrote sort of applies to both designs or it might have sounded a bit goofy. LOL
So I’ve got a couple extra issues I’m willing to part with. If you do not subscribe to Quiltmaker magazine and would like to win an issue, it’s very simple. Just leave a comment on this blog post – but only one comment per person (so please do not sign up with multiple email addresses). You must live in the United States in order to be eligible for the drawing. If you have never left an approved comment on my blog, it will hold your comment until I approve it so don’t go crazy on me and leave multiple comments if you don’t see it appear in the comment list. I will be approving them before I do the random drawing.
Time to finish off the last of my cleaning and then find duffle bag so I can pack my vacation stuff. I’ll be glad not to be standing on the corner waiting for the bus tomorrow morning in the below zero temperatures and hopefully between here and where I’m headed they don’t get as much snow as was earlier predicted for today and tomorrow or I may have a stay-cation after all.
