Sunday morning's exciting news

The house is all quiet. We've had a busy weekend with visitors etc. Marty is out with his mates flying their planes, Amy is at a sleepover, and Cam is still asleep (at 10.20??). I'm itching to get into the sewing room and take advantage of this quiet time ... but I just had to share something ...

Do you remember a couple of months ago, I was telling you about a project I was working on, but couldn't really show you the pictures ... well, the magazine just arrived on Friday! It's Australian Patchwork and Quilting, their Mail-Order issue, Vol 15 No 2. My project is called 'Never Enough Log Cabins'. Head to your quilt store and check it out if you can!

Also, I have become obsessed with knitted socks ... wonderful ladies from the quilt store have been giving me their vintage sock knitting patterns and wondering if I've lost my mind ... I've been crusing ebay for cute sock wool and more patterns ... I really need to check myself and finish one sock first ... working that toe may cure me of my new obsession for good! Having said that, the pattern pictured at left is my next purchase ... let me at em! For fun tales of sock knitting adventures, do check out the Yarn Harlot's blog ... it's a fun read, and I think may be contributing to my out of mind state ...

Oh I love those weaving looking socks! Those are so cool! And I have a subscription to AU P&Q so I can't wait till I get it! I always get it sooner via subscription than it will hit the newsstands here, so we may have a bit of a wait yet here in the US! Rats!

I shall be visiting my local book store in a couple of weeks to see if they have the new issue of the AU P&Q. How exciting for you!

That sock pattern looks lovely - looked at Yarn Harlots Blog and wow, what an incredible blog.

Tazzie, you must be thrilled ! I have a subscription to APQ magazine, but I think I won't get the new issue before 15th December... Can't wait getting it ! Then I'll show your quilt to my bee and say : "I know her. We're blogging together !" (LOL)
Congratulations !

Hugs and smiles,
NADINE.

Hello, I'm the quilt chick from Edmonton Alberta Canada. I just had to send you a note to say Wow, congratulations, your quilts look lovely and now you're published. I don't think we get that magazine in Edmonton, but I'll check it out on the internet if I can. Kudos to you.

Tonya R said...

congrats on the publication! I'll have to keep an eye out for the magazine.

Susan said...

How fabulous! I'll get it at the quilt store, while dropping your name everywhere. =)

Rats! I was hoping that they would have a preview picture of your quilt on the web page---four other lovelies there but not yours. Congrats again on the publication.

Congrats!

Sox have bitten me too....I just love 'em!

Jenni @ Fairybread said...

Congratulations Tazzie. To think we know all these quilters who are published?

bettsy said...

And a beautiful quilt it is too. My copy arrived on Friday but I didn't get a good chance to do more than flick through it until today. You must be thrilled. Congratulations and wow.

Ruth said...

I got a subscription for APQ for my birthday (in October) but it hasn't started arriving yet (things move slowly in Africa) chances are the one with your quilt in it will be the first one I receive. How cool is that!

cher said...

how thrilling to be published-will look forward to checking it out. Sox pox...highly catching! akin to quilting

Linda F said...

Hi Tazzie- super nice quilting! Your applique quilt is loverly too!
IU recently listened to a motivational speaker and he said you shouldn't have a "to do" list without having a "not to do" list. I found that an interesting idea. As all the other comments I will have to wait and see Lynn's magazine to see your quilt! Congradulations!

Congratulations on getting published. I will keep my eye open for the magazine to check it out. Every once in a while I see it in these parts.
