Country Home Is Here

I was so excited when my DH called and said that my special order of 10 april issues of Country Home had arrived. I didn't expect them before they hit the news stands, but there they were, all bundled up nicely in a very well sealed box.
I opened the box, pulled out the top issue and began to search through it for my project. And there is was on page 12 in the community section. I know it's a little thing but it means so much to me that Ki Nassauer actually asked me to contribute this picture.

Well There it is, I had a lot of fun taking the picture, setting it up to look just right etc. My son helped me with the lighting, because a regular flash shot just would not do. Getting them a copy that fit their exact specifications, Pixels per inch etc was the hard part, and of course waiting to see if it would actually be in the issue, and then waiting for it to arrive. It's all been so exciting.This issue looks to be good. Ki has some pretty projects with vintage fabric starting on page 63. A couple of really neat T2T projects on page 74-75 and one I can't wait for you to see on page 88. So in about a week start looking for it to be out and in your mail boxes.
Happy Dance, Happy Dance.
