Next Year's Diary.

I received a parcel from Homespun in the mail this week which puzzled me. I squeezed the package thinking maybe this is a Christmas thank you for when I designed Bye Bye Birdie for them? The squeeze revealed it was hard, a book. A few extra magazines? Not big enough a parcel for that. So I stopped pondering and just opened it to find a complimentary copy of their 2011 diary. That's nice I thought and started flicking through looking at the quilts, one quilt for each week.

Then the penny dropped when I turned to April. Ohhhhh, there is my quilt! Perfectly matched to the same week of Grace's birthday. Funny how things all fall in place as the day before it arrived I was actually speaking to the editor about designing something else for them. Maybe that will be in the 2012 diary? We'll see. :)
