    Smile Great timing!

    A couple of years ago, I made a Hanukkah quilted wall hanging from a pattern I found in the McCall's quilting magazine. I uploaded a picture of it to the magazine and forgot about it. A few days ago, I got an email informing me that the picture would be in the magazine's "Quilter to Quilter" section of the December 2012 issue....and that I would be getting a complimentary queen sized batt from the Warm Company! I was just about to go to buy a batt for a quilt I am making for my nephew---good timing, huh?
    Who needs therapy? I quilt!

    Congrats! Even more exciting when you had forgotten all about it.
