The latest issue of Homespun was in the mail yesterday, and I was surprised to see that I was on the cover; I'm a Covergirl at last!
When I posted my Half and Half quilt off for photography I had no idea of the adventures it would get up to; look at the beautiful blonde snuggling up to it!It's always fun to see your own familiar quilts in print, they look much more glamorous than when they're bundled over the back of the lounge.
Whenever I see my name in print like this I remember my darling FIL, who was very proud of the Emmerson heritage. When I came back from my first American trip, with photos of the Golden Threads booth emblazoned with my name, he was delighted to think that the Emmerson name was being displayed so prominently. He died two years ago, but I like to think he's still getting a smile out of this.

And Bonnie's in print too; what a lovely set of photos, and she looks gorgeous. She's a star, and Lucy's house is the perfect backdrop. Typical overachiever though; we come back from holidays with fuzzy photos to remind of the trip, she comes back with a magazine spread. And Lucy, your quilts are beautiful!

My friends, the two Sonia's, have been asking constantly about the state of the Showgrounds quilt, and seeing as they were due to come round for the evening I chained myself to the sewing machine and got the borders applied. It wasn't hard, but it was heavy work with all that fabric. I have to say I am thrilled with how it turned out, I love the border fabric so much I want another 10m of it straight away. Oh I'll have fun quilting this one!

What a richly deserved cover and article. I've always wondered why more book and magazine publishers weren't beating down your door!

Stunning quilt, too. Just beautiful.

Both quilts are beautiful...(if I make one do I get a horse?!) The poor kid at at the book store...here I go asking for yet another foreign quilt magazine....

Congratulations on making the cover! I'm certain that many quilters who spotted this issue for sale in the stores bought this issue just for YOUR Quilt! :) that is awesome! Just think of how many women dream of being published and you did it!

Half & Half is sooo pretty - love the colors and you're right those flying geese boarders sure were worth the effort! They're perfect!

Love from Texas! ~bonnie
