pinch me

So there is a group on Facebook called the "SSSQ Quilt Along with Kaffe Fassett" created by STC Craft to celebrate the publication of Kaffe's latest book Simple Shapes, Spectacular Quilts. It's a public group that anyone can join and upload photos of quilts they are working on using his fabrics and/or patterns. Often he and/or Liza Roos Lucy (his collaborator) will post a comment on the photos.

Yesterday I uploaded this photo of my Paintbox quilt-in-progress to the group, and this evening when I logged into Facebook, this is the comment I saw posted under Liza's name...

"Message from Kaffe:
This dark grid and keeping all the elements of your graphic design constant you are really showing the variety of fabrics to advantage and getting alot of punch from your colours.

OMGOSH! Can't believe it! All in all a great day for me :) This excitement on top of the absolute joy that today is the 22nd anniversary of the day that I married the best man on the planet. Life is GOOD!

Have a wonderful weekend, dear readers :)
