Well look at that…

IMG_1400 My little blog was mentioned in a magazine… IMG_1401 So a big thanks to whoever reads this blog over at Quiltmaker Magazine! And thanks to my friends Dodi & Megan for noticing it. Although now I’m a little concerned that someone might actually think I know what I’m doing. Be assured….I don’t. I just pretend I do and it works out for the most part. :) I made a Christmas blankie for my little man to drag around using this tutorial again, except I put minky in the middle. The flannel is from Joann’s and is really soft once its washed. IMG_1387 Luckily it was cheap to make because the way its been dragged around he’s going to need a new one every year.

    Yes, I found your blog through the article in Quiltmaker, and have been dropping in on a regular basis for the last few weeks. I'm enjoying the visits, and enjoy Quiltmaker Magazine, especially their new 100 Block Collector's Edition that just came out.

    Congrats!!! I love your blog! btw, I made one of these little blankies for the first time last night and I love it too. It was so easy, I went straight to Joanns and bought some more flannel to make a few more.

    congratulations! next thing you know you'll be a speaker at blogher or something. ;)

    i saw the magazine in joanns and i almost went up to the cashier and was all "that's my cousin! isn't she cool?!" but i think they thought i was strange enough because i couldn't tell the difference between felt and flannel… i'm an embarassment to crafting. ;) they probably would have thought i made it up to redeem myself.
