I have two newsworthy events to share and they certainly are not listed here in order of importance or excitement!
First, I got a call from my editor this morning telling me that 60 Pieced Quilt Borders is going to its second printing. She said this is about as fast as they’ve ever had a book go to second printing. I know that a whole lot of that is because you, my loyal blog readers, have purchased it and asked for it at your local quilt shops and I appreciate that so much! Thank you all and thanks again to American Quilter for giving me this opportunity.
Second, I’m going to be grandma! Chad and Nicole got the cart ahead of the horse but they are expecting a baby. I was in Louisiana when they called last week to share the news. I think they’ve both be dreading telling us and Nicole’s parents. I didn’t dare say anything on the blog til I was sure all Nicole’s family knew because the last thing I wanted was for her family to hear it from someone in Nevada who read it on my blog. They assure me that everyone has been told and I can share the news.
I absolutely love Nicole to pieces and as aggravated as I was at them for this happening before they were married, I’m thrilled to know that she will be my daughter-in-law. I’m happy that her family (parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, sister) have taken Chad in and treat him like family. I’m not so happy that I’m so far away but I’m thinking there will be lots more trips back to MO in my future.
