I was away for 7 hours and just got home - to flip through the pages. There are definitely some real Q D Patooties there. Great photography - did you do your own or did TBR?

Berta Hesen-Minten also has a nice part in the More than Mohair feature.
I wish I'd get into the practice of sending all new work to the mags. I forget...

You know, I had to look at this three times and finally I thought...Twin Cubs, oh, THAT'S ME!  Thank you so much for all the kind words.  I am still in shock and have been keeping this a secret for a while.  I've put the article on my website under "Press" if you don't get the magazine and want to read it.  I did take all of the photos in the article itself except the ones with the white background.  All the photos with the blue background are my photographs.  It's all been very exciting, very humbling (because there are a lot of other artists out there with a lot more talent) and truthfully, I never thought I would see the day when one of my quirky creations graced the cover of anything much less a magazine.  So I'm still kind of stunned.

Anyway, here's the cover if you haven't seen it and the article is on my website ( now with additional photographs on my Blog (

Lisa , I am totally thrilled for you.  You give so much to others and  share your knowledge so you totally deserve this recognition.  Your work is unique and looks beautiful in the magazine.  Congratulations.  :clap:    :dance:

One of the photos and commentary that I most enjoyed was your mock-up cover and TBR telling about it.

Was it 2 years ago when you showed us an example, saying that "One can dream." and the "This is probably the only way your work will grace a mag cover."

Perhaps that's what the rest of us need to do. - practice seeing our work there, dream and it WILL happen!

I love all of it!
