can I sign that for you?

What in the heck is THIS?

cover


Someone's been photoshopping, I presume...



Wait....no....there's a listing on Amazon for it.



It must be real.


And you have NO idea how hard it was to keep my mouth shut. No idea at all. I've almost let it slip a few times, or secretly snuck pictures out of what's coming but then I knew I'd get told off by the others and instead I've buttoned it.

But I don't have to any more, because alongside my really, reallyREALLY good friends I've written a book.

A Fat Quarterly book on quilting! You can read all about it here.

How funny, didn't you describe yourself as 'not a proper quilter' only last week? A book? You must be nearly 'proper'! Well done, look forward to reading it.

Squuuuueeeeeealllllllllllll!!!!!!!!! I know a real life quilt author! You must autograph mine for me. Seiously though - another one for keeping secrets like Lu and I KNOW how hard that is for you!

Congratulations! I can't imagine how thrilling it must be to see a book listed on Amazon and on bookstore shelves with YOUR NAME ON IT!! Are you sleeping with it cradled in your arms? That's what my daughter would do with her favourite book of the moment when she was a little girl and then, in the night, we would hear the "clunk" of the book falling to the floor. *sigh*
