Photos of the Printing in Michigan (Lucky Jeni!)

Jeni is at the Quad Graphics print facility in Midland, Michigan.  Her husband Glen drove her up there.  They stopped at quilt shops along the way, and are having a wonderful mini-vacation.

I know we refer to our dear West Virginia as "Almost Heaven," but today Jeni would probably say the same about Michigan.  Every time she called me today it sounded as though she were holding back tears of joy, as she witnessed our sweet newborn magazine take its first breath as pages rolling off the presses.

Thank you, QuadGraphics, for doing a wonderful job, and for showing Jeni and Glen such a nice time!

The New Magazine will Ship this Week!

After lots of fun, work, fun, editing, fun, proofing, fun, editing, fun, proofing, fun, editing, fun, proofing, and, did I mention fun?...we finally have a magazine.  And we are so pleased with how it turned out.

Jeni drives up to the printing site in Michigan on Tuesday for a Wednesday press proof.  She is so excited and we are so envious!

We will now get back to schedule with our weekly newsletter.  Mom is writing an answer to a question as we e-speak!

First Things First

Before giving birth to our new magazine, I'd like to introduce you to my new (and first) grandchild, Julian Maxwell Williamson!  He was born this morning at 3:00.  Mommy, Daddy, and Baby are doing well.

Counting down and working a lot to finish this wonderful magazine.  We're so excited.  Ships to subscribers 3/31.  We've put the newsletters and Block-of-Week on temporary hold while we wrap things up before deadlines.

Loving it!
Judy, Jeni, Gretchen
