Today is my one year anniversary of starting my blog! I can’t believe I wrote 180 posts in that time.
Today is also the first day of May, so thousands of people around the world are changing the page on their 2011 Quilting Arts calendar and seeing my “Strawberry Delight” quilt. (Unless, of course, they’re like me, and they forget to turn the page until half way through the month!)
I’m always a bit surprised at how far in advance publishers need to be working. For instance, I entered this contest in February 2010, and found out in May 2010 that my quilt was one of the finalists. Since my deadlines are week to week, it takes a little effort to wrap my mind around having a deadline more than a year in advance.
