Let’s Bee Social #100
I want to thank you all for making the Let’s Bee Social a success! This is the 100th post for the weekly linky party. Where the focus is on being social. This linky party relies on your linking up each week, but also on your willingness to visit the other participants. So often I hear from people who have met new friends and how much they enjoy the inspiration found at this party. It makes me so happy to know that you enjoy the linky party and are able to connect with one another. It’s comforting to know that in a world filled with so much negative stuff (war, terrorism, racism, etc,) quilting binds us together and builds us up in love and friendship! Thank you for BEEing my friend and for making this party so much fun!
On that note, I would like to share with you some good news. On December 1st, the newest issue of Quiltmaker magazine hits the newsstands…
I am a center fold! Well, at least my giraffe quilt is…..
Here is a pixelated peek! They have changed the name of it from Giraffe Family to Family of Three. But it is the same one I mentioned in this post back when I finished the quilt. I received two issues in the mail this past Friday. And just may be tempted to let one of them go in a giveaway! So stay tuned!
But I DO want to make it clear. In spite of wanting to share the news of being published for the first time in a quilting magazine, I am not trying to be a show off. Or a braggart. Being a center fold is a far cry from being a cover girl. Remember this post about Miley and me?
That post and all my feelings outlined within it, are still as true today as they were when I wrote it. Being published doesn’t necessarily mean much of anything as far as I’m concerned. Really. Just ask me.
It’s not that I don’t appreciate being published. I do. It’s just that I don’t want rely on what other people think about my work. So many people are agonizing over whether their work is good enough to be published, to be accepted into Quilt Con, to be considered Modern, etc….. And I don’t want to lose my perspective. I like what I make. I like what other people make. But I don’t want to change my style to suit what other people feel is good or right or Modern. And I don’t want people to think that because I got published that I think I am better than them or that my work is better than their work.
Thank you to all who stopped by and left a sweet comment on my Santa’s Reindeer block post from last week. Rudolph is so happy, he ordered some snow straight from the North Pole!!! And congratulations to the following winners! Each have won a copy of Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks Volume 12 – one from Quiltmaker and the other four from me. Pop on over and congratulate them!
