Published!

It is a very great honor to announce that I have been asked to be a part of the Better Homes and Garden's Holiday Crafts   magazine this year! It was VERY difficult to keep it under wraps since Spring.


 Last week when I was shopping, I saw it in the magazine section of the store~ I thought I still had another month to wait! With shaking hands I noticed the cover featured  a spider by my friend, Cathy Pendleton! You know her best from The Cheswick Company . she has been a favorite friend, colleague and part of the Heritage Show that we did in February until it's ending last year. When I opened the magazine, I was delighted once again to see friend Nancy Malay's snowman pictured on the Editor's page! Such fun~
After some page turning with still shaky hands~ I found it! Eliza's glove! The free pattern is bit bigger than the original and done for Halloween. They did a boo-ti-ful job with it! There are plenty of Fall and Winter projects to keep one busy and I have marked several for myself.  You should find it in your local Walmart, grocery or pharmacy, but if not, I found some here: http://equilter.com/cgi-bin/webc.cgi/st_main.html?catid=329


Ahh, but there is more news too! I am working hard so that by the end of next week, I will have a Picture Trail with ALL of my patterns in it...and some new pattern releases too. To celebrate, I do think there should be a pattern sale! I'm off to complete more pattern masters and get everything ready~ such an exciting time!

Welcome to the BHG family Stace...it definitely opens doors for you if you're ready to walk through! I remember the first year I was in it...it was so surreal...I was fortunate to have my characters in it for 4 years...so this is just the beginning for you. Love Cathy's cover piece! She is so shy about it that it's cute!!!! Congrats over and over! Well done!
