Does anyone utilize Google Alerts? I do, I find them mostly helpful, informative, and time saving. Well the other day the one I received made me fall out of my chair...this is what I read:
Red and White and Sewn All Over
Wall Street Journal
At the gift shop, those who wanted to make a deeper inquiry into quilts could purchase books like "Start Quilting," "City Quilts," "Crazy Quilting," or even ...
How on earth could the title of my book City Quilts be listed in a google alert for the freaking WALL STREET JOURNAL??? Had I lost my mind, had I lost the ability to read, was my mind creating willy nilly sentences out of thin air? How could this be? I believe; I almost hyperventilated! I know there are other books listed besides mine, so maybe there are more women falling out of chairs, and hyperventilating around the country, I have no idea. I just know that MY BOOK was referenced in the Wall Street Journal, and I am still dumbfounded!
Can I just tell you something about my book? It was a labor of love, and something I was actually compelled to do. Besides the quilting part; I had no idea what I was doing, I had no idea how to do it, I had no idea how it would be received, if it would be purchased, or cherished by anyone. It's been out for almost a year now; lots of you like it, some of you love it, there are some folks who don't like it all - their biggest annoyance is that there are no prints in the book...hello...it's a books about solids, but whatever floats your boat, right?
I love all of you...even the ones who aren't crazy about solids!
Two little things:
- Remember to leave a comment for the free crib size fusible batting from Hobbs
- Thanks a million for sending your beautiful baby quilts to the Baltimore Head Start program...they still need more, if you are able to share. I'm sending 2 this week!
