Announcing a winner is super fun, but today is doubly great because I have another announcement to make. I actually came to find out about this somewhat by accident. Several months ago, I was contacted by the talented Tricia Waddell, former editor of Stitch Magazine, and all around creative gal, asking if I would contribute a bag design to her upcoming book. Now Tricia is one of my favorite people in this business and has always been so supportive of my work. In fact, I've never deleted a particular email she once sent me and often turn to it when I need a little professional boost. So, you can imagine, that I was very excited to be a part of her project. Anyway, long story semi-short, I created a hobo-style patchwork bag, wrote up the instructions, and sent both off to Tricia for inclusion in her book. I didin't give that project much thought until last week when I was flipping through the catalog for QuiltCon and saw an advertisement for this book:
Best of Stitch Bags to Sew is slated for release in early May and I hope that some of you get the chance to check it out and make some of the projects included. I, for one, am excited to craft some new bags as well as get this one back for use this summer.
