Early Christmas


Although my home is not decorated completely, there is still lots of baking to do but it sure seems like Christmas arrived early this year!

Cultural Fusion Quilts is one of  the best books of the month of December in Crafts, Hobbies and Home on Amazon!!!

Yay! I am aware of how much I constantly talk about the book but I am filled with a great sense of pride. How can I resist sharing it all with you all who have been on this journey with me for past four years.


I spent last couple of days trying to take some good pictures of my quilts with things around my house. It has been fun unfolding and refolding these quilts. Photographing quilts is like an exercise in space designing. To find the perfect way to arrange and rearrange them and to wait for just the right light to enter through the windows - It's all very time consuming but lot of fun. I enjoy it as a part of blogging as much as sharing the stories of the quilts.

Soon after I came back from the market, Amy Butler had offered to share my book and photos on her fb page. Off course I said, ''Yes!'' After the blog tour ended, my focus was to take some pictures and send them off. Amy shared couple of those pictures on her fb page today. You can see them on Amy Butler Design fb page by clicking on the link below.

Thank you Amy, for that lovely shout-out this morning! I am touched by your sincere and genuine, kind self!  

These days I pinch myself at least a few times a day. At times I think I will never come down from up above but not to worry, I have asked my husband to pull me down if I float away for too long.

Writing this book has taught me things I had never known how to do. Like saving a screen shot for instance or setting up a Paypal account on my blog. Just couple of days back, my book was at #1 on amazon's Hot New Release list in Quilts and Quilting. I showed it to my husband and we both were happy to have spotted that. Later that evening a friend suggested to take a picture. By the time I went back, it had slipped back to #2! I learned to save the screen shot. I guess it is never too late to learn new things, achieve your goals and dream of next best thing.


So this all may seem like bragging a bit but I am reserving the rights for now!


I am enjoying these moments and fruits of my labor with this book. I will be back on the earth soon.

Have a great weekend!

    I am quite sure that this kind of quilts will please many French quilters, so I want to be the bridge between you and the French quilting bees next year.
