Surprise!


Magazines have a long lead time - 3 to 9 months is not uncommon.  So I'll send an article off and then promptly forget about it as more immediate deadlines and current projects take up my brain power.

Getting an envelope with comp copies of Fibre Focus (the magazine of the Ontario Handweavers Guild) in the mail today was a surprise but a bigger surprise awaited me inside.  Not only had they given my work the front cover ---- they put another of my pieces on the back!

I've had front covers before but this is a first for the back, too.

A nice birthday week present.  :)
