AQS has accepted my book proposal!  Whoo-Hoo!

How cool is that?!!! I'm so excited.
They're sending a package with their paperwork, contract, etc. so I'll know more when I receive it.
Now the real work begins, 5 quilts and all the written materials, samples, diagrams, etc. due by May 15. I guess I'll be busy for awhile! The tentative publication schedule is for February 2015, but of course that could change.

Meanwhile life goes on....I've been busy working on a Christmas gift for my great-niece Maddie. How cute is this, matching outfits for her and her American Girl doll:

Linking up today with Can I get a Whoop Whoop over at Confessions of a Fabric Addict and Friday Finish over at Crazy Mom Quilts. Check out everyone else's excitement over there!
