I'm so excited!

I noticed that Nova spilled the beans on her blog and Chrissie has a link on her blog, so I guess it's safe to share some news that has me very excited!

See this adorable book...
I got to be a part of it! Last year, the lovely Chrissie Grace herself asked if I would be interested in contributing to a book she was writing about quilt swaps.  Have you seen Chrissie's other books?  Yes, I was interested!  I was in some very good company too. It still doesn't feel real to have participated in something like this with Chrissie and some of the coolest bloggers out there.

I haven't seen a copy of the book in person yet, but from the preview at Amazon, it looks amazing!  The illustrations are beautiful, the photographs are inspiring, and the text is clearly written.  I can't wait to get my hands on a copy.  The publication date is November 8th, which is not very far away. (I'm grinning right now.)

I'm sure I'll be mentioning this lovely book again soon, but I just wanted to share since I am so excited.

Oh and and that orange hexie flower on the cover... I made it!  Eeeek!  (Yes, I'm grinning again.)
