One Yard Wonders

So about a year ago, I submitted a pattern to a couple of ladies who were putting together a book of sewing patterns.
I got in, and the book came out a couple of weeks ago.
They threw a party at Crafty Planet last week, but I was recovering from the flu (I thought I had THE FLU, but it seems like maybe I didn't) so I missed the party.
This was a colossal bummer, as I hadn't seen the book yet.
Anyway, I went in to Treadle Yard Goods today, and they had a copy, so I quick searched through it and there was my pattern!
The book is One-Yard Wonders: 101 Sewing Fabric Projects; Look How Much You Can Make with Just One Yard of Fabric! and my project is the Rocketship to Dreamland.

It was super fun to see my project in a book, but also super duper fun that they put a tiny Tin Tin and Snowy in the pocket of the rocket in the photo.

All the contributors get a copy of the book, but mine hasn't arrived yet.
I can't wait! I flipped through the rest of the projects and this book looks terrific!

Congratulations! I have a balance on a gift certificate at Crafty Planet that I've been saving to get this book. And that's before I knew you had a project in it! How cool.
