SCRAPBOOK OF FRIENDS: PILLOW ALONG

If you have been following along, you might already know that my quilty friend Carrie [HERE on Instagram] and I have been writing a book with the lovely ladies over at ITS SEW EMMA. It is chalk full of great projects… quilts, table runners, pillows, pin cushions and even more! Can there be even more than that? There CAN… and there IS… I promise! Given the pandemic and everything else… let’s just say that it took the book a bit longer to get finished and a bit longer than we might have originally thought to get here. But SHE IS ON HER WAY NOW… so in the end that is all that matters. I was just commenting on INSTAGRAM the other day that writing a book is very very similar to the stages and feelings of having a baby… at least that…

Another winner, maybe dinner

No, there is no dinner. Today we are having leftovers. I just got carried away with the whole "winner, winner, chicken dinner" phrase that I love so much! So the winner of the SEWN HATS BOOK giveaway is: On September 16th at 8:06, Mary said: I'd love to win this book – I'm known for wearing and making hats and have started my grandchildren on this same path! (The boys and the girls all have hats I've made them and let me know when they need a new one!) My very favorites are the big, floppy brimmed hats.   And because we couldn't pick just one, we will also send an AMELIA & ME pattern to: On September 18th at 6:52 am, Martha Followill said… I love the Amelia and Me pattern for my little greatniece…

Sneak…

…Peek Just thought I'd pop in amidst our sewing and designing frenzy to show you a project in my upcoming book, With Fabric & Thread. This is one of my favs.    We don't have them in our hot little hand just yet but a little birdie just told me that we should be getting them any day now! So we are working to get books ready to ship to you next week, WOOHOO! We will start taking pre-orders on the site this weekend [or perhaps later today if all goes well] so check back if you would like a signed copy as soon as we have them!        More on all this book fun later. For now, hope these little goodies give you something yummy to think about this weekend! And if you have time, feel free to send…
