I haven’t been posting as much as I would like because I managed to get freelance gig with Hand/Eye Magazine. I’ve been pretty busy with editing and writing articles, mailings, and brainstorming how to increase our traffic and subscriptions. On a scale of 1 to 10, this is an 11 job. It was exactly what I was looking for!

Yesterday, my second bylined article appeared in the online issue. It’s about a male quilting bee that meets twice a year in Woodstock. I first learned about the group last year via my friend Jeff Rutherford’s FaceBook page. I always thought it would make an interesting story, and when Keith Recker, the publisher and editor of Hand/Eye, told me we were doing a “Guy” issue, I thought about these quilters and pitched him the idea. He told me to go for it, and I did.
