Me and My Stack

...of books.



Those are most, but not all, of the books I purchased so that I could sell signed copies from my shop. The official publication date isn't until next Tuesday, so I'm going to hold off on selling any until then, but I know that the books have been shipping out from Amazon and, I assume, Barnes and Noble already. I decided to wait because otherwise the publication date will feel like a regular Tuesday instead of a really exciting, amazing, I've never-had-a-book-published-before kind of day. I do have a few things planned for next week and I even have another giveaway planned for this week as well as a new sponsor announcement, so the fun doesn't need to end.

Which brings me to last week's giveaway. I'm happy to announce that Ann was the lucky, randomly chosen winner of Spike Gillespie's Quilting Art book.

Ann said,

It looks like a fabulous book. Congrats on getting your quilts in it.

So, Ann, if you'll email your address to me at malka@stitchindye.com, I'll send your book to you faster than you can ask, "Where's my book?"

I really can't wait for this book. This kind of inspiration is coming at such a good time for me! Congrats to you!

Heather said...

Congratulations! I've been following your blog for a long time, because I love your colors and shapes, and because I'm a wannabe quilter. I just put this on my wishlist, so next order, I'll have it in my hands! I live in central Africa and I have a collection of fabrics awaiting their destiny, but in my dreams, I'm creating my own fabrics...
