Clean-up time at Casa de Zombie

May 8th, 2007

It’s official… I’ve crapped my pants and my head’s exploded from mass expansion. My little cherry quilt made the cover!  Not to mention getting published by my favorite publisher isn’t cool enough as it is!

    That is so amazing! You and Pam are the most famous people I know. Is that the Cherry quilt on the cover of the magazine shown in this post? Because I remember seeing your cherry quilt and I feel like it had more cherries on it. Maybe I’m just hallucinating?

    Anyway-break out the best red wine tonight and party like a mad-woman!

    I might need an autograph though.
