Stitch Magazine Cover!!!!

Stitch Fall 2010
Hi all. How are you all doing?
I'm sorry I was so quiet for a while here.
Thank you so much for your lovely, thoughtful comments,
e-mails, and letters that always cheer me up!
I just needed a little break for some reasons,
but I am back now and am so super thrilled to finally
share with you guys this excitement!

Yeah! my handmade tote bag made the cover of the Fall
issue of Stitch magazine!!!! Hooray!!!!!!!!!
Had I ever thought about seeing my own sewn item
in my favorite magazine in a bookstore?!
I can still hardly believe this really happened.
I am so happy to be part of the crafty contributors
that I have been admiring for a long time like
Rashida of I heart linen. (Go check out her blog
if you love to stumble upon a place that inspires you,
although I doubt there are many of you who haven't
checked it out... her work is just incredibly beautiful.)

I would say that I am probably not the one that
was excited the most about this magazine coming out.
Joe was checking out the bookstore like everyday
since a week before it got published. When it became
available, he got overly thrilled and couldn't help telling
the bookstore staff that the bag was made by his girlfriend
and rushed back to work and showed it off to every
co-worker he encountered in the day. LOL.
I really think I am so lucky to have met this guy.

I thank all of you who have continuously encouraged me
to get crafty and to allow me to share my work
with you guys. Thank you, thank you, thank you all!!!!!!

Thanks for coming and reading!!
