Some people have all the luck...

All right, so I have news.

Big news.

That’s why I haven’t been posting.

You know I love quilting. You know I love editing, proofreading, and teaching.
I have been slowly inching towards merging my loves and it’s finally happened.

I’m over the moon to tell you—
I’m the new editor-in-chief of American Quilter magazine.

Yes, as in the oldest, largest quilting company—American Quilter’s Society—has chosen me to put the spice in their Chai.

No, I’m not kidding. It’s a happy miracle!

So my posts will be farther in between but they’ll be there because this blog is me; I can’t lose sight of me, even though it’s tempting.

If you’d like to add my professional page to your Facebook account, then “friend” me! I hope to post things that are happening and a few pics from AQS shows. http://www.facebook.com/micheleduffy.aqs

Oh, and just so you’re not taken aback, that picture isn’t completely accurate. Yes, it’s me, but I don’t look like that in person. Or at least I hope not or people will be asking me for tips on how to discipline grandkids. 

Send happy thoughts and creativity my way...
