In light of this blog being originally created as a time capsule of my quilting and sewing adventures, I'll be doing the odd "Dear Future Grandchildren" post to book mark my highlights.  So here goes ...

"Dear Future Grandchildren,

I had a lovely surprise in the post the other day.  Oh I must explain that the 'post' is a rudimentary and physical way to send packages/mail to people.  You probably nanoo-nanoo it these days with the other 80% of your brain that we haven't figured out how to use yet.  Anyway, I opened the package to find a magazine ... oh a 'magazine' is ... this is going to take too long to explain all these things.  I suggest you 'Google' what you don't know ... that's if Google is still around ... um ... you'll figure it out!

So, where was I?  Oh yes, magazine!  It was a copy of Country Threads (Vol. 16, No. 8) and yours truly was featured as this issue's Designer!!

Yes, you're old Nan ... a Designer!! ... see, you should totally wear that plaid with the stripes, I know what I'm talking about!

Your Mums were a bit miffed that there wasn't a picture of them in the magazine (because everything is always about them lol) but your Granddad was happy that I remembered to mention him in the article.

And the article!  It's great and spreads over three pages, showing some of the quilts I've made recently (like 37 weeks ago according to a sneak peak on Instagram) but haven't been able to blog about because of this article and impending pattern releases.

So there you go ... I've bought a few extra copies for family and you'll probably find them in a dusty box in the attic ... right under your Granddad's old golf clubs or maybe to the left of my fabric stash, because I'm sure I would have accumulated one by the time you read this.

All my love,

Nan xxx"
