Deadline: check!

Confession: I have a dream of being a children's book author. I LOVED to read when I was a kid. The baby-sitters club series was my favorite. I finished my first book about a princess that's really wants to be a pirate and stows away on her uncle's pirate ship (with her faithful sidekick cat, Rico) and ends up saving the day. Luke made me set a deadline to submit it to be published because I was procrastinating. I set it for April 1. Last week I submitted a query letter to a childrens lit agency and they asked to see my work. I sent off my manuscript yesterday. I should hear in about a week if they want to sell it to a publisher. I know that its hard to publish a book and it can take tens of submissions before and if you get a contract. But I am hopeful that God will bless me with success. I have a wild imagination and the ability to make up stories on the spot. I would like to be able to share my stories with children everywhere. And support myself so that I can work from home.

In other news... Were super homesick!!!

More quilt

Here is the quilt with all the blocks sewn together. I'm thinking skinny black border then then fat (unsure of color) border. The orange would have been good, but I'm pretty sure I used it all up. Not sure what I'm doing with the quilt yet.
