Publishing with Blurb

Written by
I created calendars again this year and was able to hand them out to the family and friends for Christmas. I started a bit earlier this year and had most of the photos of our work all ready for the printer. My peeps all tell me that they look forward to getting them. This is the second year, so I am going to be busy trying to get 12 new art pieces ready for next year's calendar. I have used Costco both years for their large 11 x 17 calendar that has generous date squares for writing.
Congratulatons to Linda Anderson for being selected for publication in Machine Quilting Magazine.
