Pinch Me, Please.

Kelly Kilmer, my art daughter, emailed me today and asked if what she had seen somewhere was my art. I clicked to the link she so kindly provided, and there it was, MY (voice cracking) art journal that is going to be a feature article in Sew Somerset. No one told me it was going to be on the cover, just that I was getting a six page spread and I was writing the article. They sent the pages of proofs recently, and I was happy then, but this is a whole 'nother story. It is due out June 1, so I guess we all will soon know. WHOOOOWHEEEE, I am a happy girl.

I am in the middle of redoing my studio. I had all my sewing stuff in a sewing room, but I wasn't happy walking down the hall between the sewing room and studio when I was doing mixed media, so I moved my big easy chair and all my books to the sewing room and now I have a library and a studio instead. It is a pretty big mess still with things piled in transition spots, but I am making progress. I might stick a few reveal photos on my blog. I am anxious to get done because it has been over a week since I made anything, and it is really bothering me. Seeing this makes it worse. I need to hear that machine purring!
