After what seems an age. I am in print and I have now received my complimentary copies of Quilting Arts .
Thats not a complaint but it seems such a long time since I was contacted by Pokey Bolton with a view to writing an article....out of the blue.
She phoned me!!!!
Thats me in the middle of the cover..retro inspired.
I made some new pieces for the article based on pieces I had already done.
They came home today after a trip across the world to places I have never been and will probably never go.
Its so exciting.
Its only me.
And my sewing machine.
And the contents of my little brain spilled out into stitch.
I wish I could be cool and blasé (can put the accent in now. Thanks Kitty!!)........but its just not me.
Sorry to be such an insufferable show off.
They are super-gorgeous!
Hi Jackie -
I've been away and have so much catching up to do on your blog, but had to pop in quickly and say a big "CONGRATULATIONS" !!! It may be just you, your machine and the contents of your brain, but it all combines perfectly to the delight of us all who follow your blog and have had the pleasure of seeing your work firsthand.
Bravo, well deserved.

Congrats! I'm still waiting for my copy. You deserve the recognition.

You shouldn't be too surprised. Your work is brilliant.
Congratulations! You could not possibly deserve it more!!!!
Jackie, this is SOOOOO cool! I'm so excited for you and of course, for all of us who gets to read it!

Oh, such lovely work, you show off!! Go on, you deserve it!! Show off some more, I don't care.....
Do you order that mag? If so, can you give me the details and I'll get my son to get one for me ( I know someone who wrote an article in here, don't you know!!)
ps. not to be recommended, but your lovely brooches wash well in 30 degrees still attached to dress, of course.... (After Dubai trip, I stuffed everything in washing mashine, not thinking!)
Congratulations, I can't wait to get my issue of Quilting Arts.You should be very proud of yourself.
I love your work (it's not exactly gross) and you should be shouting from the rooftops!!
It's great that your talent has been recognised!
Conogratulations Jackie, enjoy your fame. Your work is beautiful.

I wouldn't be blase, I would be very proud of myself! Well done you, your pieces are just lovely :-)
You're allowed to show-off. You're now famous but it's totally deserved as you are massively talented and "a very, very nice man" (OK lady) to boot. :O)

Congratulations, Jackie! I can't wait to get my hands on a copy! The publishing process from start to finish does seem to take a crazy long time, but it is so worth it. Looking at your work, I realize that it would make for a great book... there isn't anything else like it out there. Have you ever thought of sending in a query to any art/craft book publishers? I think you would be a hit!
Clever you! Well done. BFN.
Congratulations Jackie,it looks gorgeous. I'll have to try and get a copy.
WWOOOOWWW I'm so happy for you Jackie! So well deserved! I can't wait to see the issue. I feel like I know a rock star!! awsome.

Jackie, your work is just amazing and you fully deserve this accolade! I stopped subscribing to QA but I may have to get this issue! Well done!
no 'just' for you any more. It is You and Your machine. Well done, I hope it only your first article.
Its all really beautiful work Jackie. You should be shouting from the rooftops - I know I would.
Can't wait for my copy to come.
Well done you. :)
It is so exciting to see your work in print, I don't blae you for being proud.
I wouldn't be cool and blase - I'd get the Town Crier out! Well done and congratulations. Can't wait to see my copy of Quilting Arts. Maybe it'll come this week. You mustn't belittle your work, it is so highly thought of, quite unique and just looking at it brings a glow of pleasure.
Jackie, I know I am number 68 :)and all is been said before me but I like to Congratulate you with the article.
You deserve it, you work is very special !!
I was so excited when I got my Quilting Arts Magazine. I have been a folloer of your blog for a year now. Congratulations.
Don't hide that light under any bushes..your work is fabulous.. and refreshingly original!!
Thanks so much for your visit... glad the formica stirred up memories for you..
Comforting to know that I am not the only worrier... my other half tells me I could worry for England... and I do!!
Love your profile.... much in common.
The cottage we stayed at in Lavenham is one of Grove Cottages.. a gorgeous collection of period houses in Suffolk... http://www.grove-cottages.co.uk
Do let me know if you stay in one... ours was absolutely perfect..
Nice to have met you
That is seriously exciting - what delicious images. So many congratulations!
Love the stylised flowerheads in some of your pieces - they make me think of Lucienne Day textiles, agapanthus, and my favourite skirt. Fabulous.
Just had to look in and say 'WELL DONE JACKIE!!' It is such a well deserved recognition of your wonderful work. I couldn't be happier for you.
(PS: If you hold down the Alt Gr button when you type 'e' you will get a 'é' which will allow you to be blasé ;-) ) x
fantastic work J
Love this stuff .. and congrats on the magazine input .. will have to buy that one
Brilliant stuff - I'm glad that you did show off because I've let my subscription lapse and I might never have found out!
Well done you - you deserve it.
Belated congratulations lovely and talented Jackie! You are so talented and I am so pleased you are getting more recognition for your work.
Your art is truly outstanding (and you seem like a beautiful person too).
Big hug from me!
I saw your article in the new Quilting Arts magazine and I am in LOVE with your work! I am not expecting such exquisite results but I am so inspired to try your techniques. Love the colors, love the stitching, love everything about it...just beautiful! Thank you for sharing.

Congratulations! Those are gorgeous pieces you made for the article. I will definitely be going to Borders to get a copy!
I had the same experience with Quilting Arts and I will be bragging at my blog soon! Is there anything more fun than working with editors named Pippa an Pokey? :-)
BTW, how do you do the accent?
