British Patchwork and Quilting

My mate Lizzie Allen just emailed me to let me know that I am this month's featured blog in British Patchwork and Quilting magazine so I immediately leapt into the car, drove into my local town, dashed into Smiths, bought a copy and read MY NAME IN PRINT for the first time (ever unless you include the picture of me in the Berkhamsted Gazette when I was at the castle fete, front row in the clown show when I was five).  How exciting is that???  Champagne tonight and maybe some cashew nuts.  Thank goodness they didn't feature the post where we talked about the "letter box" or "watermelon" as Rhonda called it in her podcast about me.  I'm not sure the ladies in the patchwork guilds up and down the country would have seen the funny side of that little debacle.

  2. wow! Congraulations. You think they would have let you know directly - just to be sure you went and bought a copy rather than hoping for word of mouth. Well done, you deserve it for all the effort you put into your blog and flickr.

  38. Lynne! You're a celebrity! Has it already gone to your head? I'll bet the first thing you did was go out and get yourself ANOTHER butler. Am I right?
