Well, hello again! No, I haven't forgotten about you. Honest. Things have just been super busy around here. I'm sure you can relate. :)
I missed 2 weeks in a row this time, but I do actually have a very legitimate reason -- my family had a giant garage sale (no we weren't selling the actual garage, you silly goose!) over Memorial week end. Whew! I am so glad that it is over. I had forgotten how much work went into preparing for a garage sale. I think we spent 2 weeks (or was it 5 years???) getting everything cleaned, priced, arranged, etc. It wasn't one of our best sales, but I guess it wasn't our worst either, either.
Anyway, while I was getting ready for the garage sale, my friend Cathey Laird skipped off to Spring Market in Kansas City, MO. Lucky girl! She sent me the following advertisement image in a message:
This is an ad for the Top 25 Patterns at Moda. Check out the third pattern down on the left side -- YES! It is my Salt Water Taffy Rose Card pattern for Villa Rosa! YIPPEE! Wow, was I surprised when she messaged it to me -- she really made my day.
Out of curiosity, I went to Moda's website and looked under their books and patterns section. Again, I was surprised to find most, if not all, of our Villa Rosa Rose Cards, including ALL of my designs. This is so mind-boggling and exciting. (You can't see me right now, but I am doing my happy dance as I write this post.)
I never know where my designs and patterns are going to show up next.
