In other magazine news, two of my articles were recently published in the Fall 2012 issue of Quilt Sampler magazine.
They feature two fabulous quilt shops—Sweet Home Quilt Co. in Conyers, Georgia, and Lone Star House of Quilts in Arlington, Texas. The shop owners couldn't have been more gracious with their time and contributions. Their passion for what they do was obvious—and contagious. After my QS interviews, I always feel like retreating to my sewing room all day! If you haven't visited these terrific shops I hope you will check them out. I know they're on my list of go-to shops! Here's the entry spread for the Sweet Home Quilt Co. profile...
And here's the one for the Lone Star House of Quilts article. Both shops have welcoming porches to greet their guests.
A few of you Country French decorating fans who know I write for Country French magazine asked me to notify you when the next issue was out. Well, it's here and I have an article in it.
My article—called "Enlightened Elegance"—talks about how a seamless medley of painted finishes, French antiques, and calming colors draws out the softer side of a Houston home shared by a busy mother and her four daughters.
