Bragging rights!


Two of my "Jeanius" bags are one of the features in the Summer 09 issue of A Needle Pulling Thread.

I've known about this for a very long time, since the bags had to be finished last December, and I got the colour palette and submission instructions last fall. But somehow, actually seeing the issue and reading the article makes it all so much more real.

Thanks to my friend Loretta Moore (who was featured in the previous issue), my name had already been given to Carla as a potential contributor with the bags. And an email with a sample picture attached paved the way to the feature.

I really enjoyed the journey, from designing the "Fireworks" bag to the telephone interview with their writer, and all my correspondence with Carla. And it's always a relief when you read what a writer you have never met pulls snippets from a lengthy interview and you are happy with the outcome. Whew!

The magazine is really worth subscribing to. It always has a rug hooking feature and lots of other interesting projects for those of us who dabble in many fiber arts. My friend Elaine said that she picked up a copy at Chapters, so I think if you are interested in finding a copy, you can try there.

Better still, go online to the magazine's website and subscribe.

Hi Wendie,
I just received my magazine in the mail and was so excited to see your purse and instructions in it. Way to go girl! Also, I just signed up for two more years of a Needle pulling thread. It's a great magazine and very good value. If people sign up before tomorrow they get an additional issue free.
I don't know how you find time to do all you do and work full time! I can't imagine how hectic your life will really be when you finally retire from fulltime work! cheers, Susan

The deleted post was just a duplicate - I didn't say anything mean or bad. Honest.
