I'm a Cover Girl!

...Well, at least my Infinity Scarf is...And my son's girlfriend Oksana who so graciously agreed to model for me :)  It was a nice mail day today, when I got my copy of Sew-It Today in the mail, and saw that a picture of one of my projects made it to the cover (And I even took the photo!).  I was asked to make an Infinity Scarf for the premier issue of Sew-it Today magazine with these beautiful batiks, and then I was asked to take a shot at the photography...and they actually used some of my pictures :)

These are a couple of the shots that I sent.  (There were a bunch of others too)

Oksana is a sweet girl with a beautiful smile ~ I've never had one of my projects make the cover of a magazine before...and now I know that the key is to have it displayed properly :) 

Here's a picture of the scarf showing the piecing and the inside fabric.

And I have another project in this magazine too ~ my Holly Lane Tablerunner is on page 22 :)  I didn't take this photo, it was sent off to the magazine to a professional (this is a scan of the page).  I love it with the props...I'm still smiling :)

Enjoy the day!
~ Dawn
