Excitement on Day 15!!!

  Look at what came in the post this morning!

Here is a peek inside.

Let's take a closer look!

It seems like an age since Laurie Wisbrun, she of Tufted Tweets and Urban Circus fame, contacted me to ask if I would like to contribute a piece of my fabric for inclusion in a book that she was writing. After thinking about it for about 2 seconds I of course said YES!! and I am thrilled to finally have a copy of the book in my hands.

What I hadn't anticipated was the thrill of being included in a book that also has the likes of Malka Dubrawksy and Lotta Helleburg in it, women whose work I have long been an admirer of.

And look, that's my name on the contributors page.

I have only had a quick thumb through but I can already see that this is a comprehensive and well written book. I am sure it will be come a must for anyone interested in fabric design. 
I will have a more in depth look on my Quilt Routes blog shortly.

Today I am feeling grateful and humbled. Thank you Laurie for including me in your book.


  1. It is always exciting to see your work in print!

  2. Congrats! It looks like a beautiful piece of fabric. Not unlike your most recent sea scapes (minus the thread textures).

Thank you for taking the time to comment. I do try to respond to each one but
if you do not hear from me it is probably because you are a "no reply blogger".
