Thankfully, as I was curled up in bed on Thurs a little happy parcel arrived in the post. The wonderful Sarah sent on two issues of Generation Q magazine. I lamely flipped through them both just looking at the photos of fabric periodically over the past three days. Mentally I couldn't take much more in.
Today I could focus a bit more. I wanted to show you what I found inside the Fall 2012 issue. Yep! Right there on the first shiny page of the first article is a photo that my other half and I took! A photo pointing the way to Quilty Co Clare.
You see, one weekend nearly a year ago, Sarah emailed several of us in the Galway/Clare area asking if anyone would be anywhere near Quilty. She had been asked by Gen X magazine to snap a photo or two, but it was a bit too far for her to travel. I, oddly enough, had plans to go camping down in Co Clare that very weekend and happened upon a Quilty sign. Knowing I wasn't going to head all the way to Quilty proper, my other half pulled off the road once the sign was spotted and I tried to snap the photo with my mobile phone. Sadly...I was too short. Or the sign was posted too high. Whatever. Other half saved the day with is 6 foot plus frame and then we were off and motoring back up to Co Galway. Sarah sent in the photo and everyone was happy.
Apparently, the editors liked the photo enough to publish it in their article, which is super cool. Thanks, Gen X, for making a sickly chic feel better this week. Your magazine is filled with quirky facts, gorgeous fabrics, fab interviews and great patterns. I'd highly suggest anyone flip through one if you see it!
