Fifteen Seconds of Fame?

Last September, my Tatting Tea Tuesday - Tidbits post announced a future 15 seconds of fame.

It came! It came!
My 15 seconds of fame...

A complimentary copy of the March/April 2011 issue of Piecework magazine arrived in today's mail.

In the "By Post" column (page 4) is my Letter to the Editor regarding the tatted edging shown in "A Tray Cloth to Hemstitch" (September/October 2010).

Georgia Seitz's web site is cited as a source for the edging pattern. It is to be found here:

"Butterick's Tatting & Netting" 1896
Tatting & Netting, Part 1 (page 24 of 40)

Seeing one's name in print is strangely surreal. (Squee!)

The March/April 2011 issue hits newsstands March 8th.

This issue contains NO TATTING, but it is filled to bursting with rich, vibrant color!

Read on for today's Tatting Tea Tuesday post.

Congratulations! It is exciting to see your name in print. I still have a copy of my by-line article that made the local newspaper my junior year in high school... over 40 years ago! It still brings a smile to my face!

Congratulations! I saw your name in the magazine last night when I opened my issue. I was so excited and proud of you. I am honored to be one of your tatting friends Mrs. Celebrity.

I was also excited to receive my ChocoLove Giveaway package. I love the color of the thread. Thanks so much.

Martha said...

I got my copy a few days ago and saw your name! Woo-hoo!

This is probably old news; but every year Piecework comes out with one issue that features tatting. I always keep an eye out for that one.
I remember when I was 17 I wrote a letter to Compact magazine (now defunct) and it was printed, how excited I was to see my name in print.

It is a fun thing, eh? xxx BJ your neighbor over the mountain...
