I want to send a heartfelt thanks to everyone who stepped up and answered my burning question. I am blown away by the sheer number of responses and in awe of all the diverse gadgetry you have in your stashes! And now what I really want to know is… when are you going to invite me over to play?
If you are one of the winners of this drawing, please email me your full name and shipping address so I can mail these fabrics to you next week. And this is important––please put in the subject line (in caps): I'M A STASH WINNER!

I have piles of screen-printed fabrics and other supplies/books to offer over the summer, so I will be hosting a few more drawings within the next eight weeks. I do have some challenge ideas and questions for these drawings, but if there is a burning question you'd like me to ask or a challenge you'd like us to host, please post your thoughts in the comments area.
In the meantime, I am very curious what mixed-media or quilting project you are working on at the moment. Care to share? If you have pictures on your blog, please make sure to link your blog address to your answer.
What are we up to here in Stow? Despite the fact that it's about 90 degrees, humid, and the calendar says it's June, we are immersed in the holiday season as we're in between shoots for our Quilting Arts GIFTS issue, which goes to press next month. So while many of you are sitting poolside, picture us calling local nurseries, asking them if they have a potted Christmas tree we can borrow or by chance a poinsettia in bloom. Joking aside, the GIFTS issue is quite an undertaking, but it is a joyful process. I am really pleased with the quality of the projects this year.
Lastly, if you're looking for something to stitch while winging in your hammock this summer, we have posted the 2010 Quilting Arts Calendar guidelines online. We have not yet published these in Quilting Arts, so you are the first to see them.
