Crazy Excited!!!

I wanted to take a few minutes today and share some great news with all of my friends. . .

First...

We are all CRAZY EXCITED around our house with BIG NEWS that you can now PRE-ORDER my daughter's book on AMAZON. You can also check out the news on my daughter's recent BLOG post if you're interested.

Second. . .

The BIG Cover REVEAL will happen in about 10 days!!! I've seen it and it's so awesome!!! I will make sure to share it with you when I can.

Just in case you don't know. . .

I've shared a few things in the past about my daughter becoming an author and today we are excited. When TRANSPARENT (her book) comes out on May 21, 2013 it will have been TWO long years since she signed the contract with Harper Teen (Harper Collins) not to mention how long it took before that to acquire a literary agent.   

The time has finally come to start seeing her dream becoming a reality.

Quilting Comparison. . .

There is more effort in making a book come to life than I could ever have realized. I've learned this in watching my daughter go through the publication process and it's not an easy thing to do!

I believe that's why doing hard things and then following through until we've reached our goal or task gives us such a deep sense of satisfaction and meaning in our lives.

Quilts, especially quilts that require a lot of time, become heirlooms!! Whenever I see Baltimore Quilts, or Quilts with a gazillion pieces I think of how much time and effort and expertise that went into creating such a beautiful piece of art. I love quilting and hope that someday my quilts will be heirlooms to my children and their children.

I just LOVE QUILTING and CREATING!!!

Have a WONDERFUL weekend and take some time to SEW!!!

P.S. I'd love it if you would take the time to go to the Amazon link and click the LIKE button. Thanks for your help in generating excitement about the book!
