Glowing

Look! It's me and my block from Modern Blocks. Thank you Sonja for taking this picture at our VMQG meeting last week.

Apparently I'm a 'well-known designer'. It says so right on the back cover of the book!

I'm in pretty good company. I love it that I ended up right below Ms. Goldsworthy! (that's only because of the alphabet you know. It doesn't mean she's more well-known than me. Even though she is).

Back soon with Gee's Bend report. I am positively glowing after two days with those ladies, actually. I was able to edit my last post and give credit to all of the quilt makers thanks to Matt Arnett who identified each one in a split second!

Isn't it lovely to be a "well known designer" and in such a great roll call of familiar names!

Congratulations, Krista. You deserve it. Maybe I should buy a copy of the book and tell everyone, that I know the well known Canadian designer Krista Hennebury.

it is about time you got that book!! I'm so happy to have famous friends! Can't wait to hear all about your workshop.

(I'm actually really excited about that last statement but hesitated to put in yet another exclamation point as I had already exceeded my allotment. So just imagine an exclamation point or two at the end of the sentence...)

Angela said...

congrats Krista! It's pretty surreal to see our names all on there. lol I'm not sure I'm well known but if they say it is true, then it must be...right? I can't wait to see the book in person!

It was so exciting to see the book you were published in on Thursday! Congrats on making the back cover! I was lucky enough to win the ebook in Sonja's giveaway, so I'll be checking out your block in more detail very soon!

I'm sure the Gee's Bend workshop was amazing, looking forward to hearing more about it!

Lynne (Lily's Quilts) said...

I love how we're next to each other on the back of the book! Just a shame they didn't put the other Krista on the other side of me and I'd have had a Krista sandwich right there.
