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 all possible sewing and cutting vibes our way as we will be literally buried in fabric!

Talk to you soon.

    “buried in fabric” – what a way to go! (Especially if it’s Fig Tree fabric!)

I Feel Like A Little Child Every Time I Go To Your Store Looking For The Chance To PreOrder…Where Is It. I Can’t See It. Did She Hide It Deep Under The Christmas Tree, Waaaaaay In The Back?

    You had a good choice when it comes to the color. This got a perfect combination. It is cool in the eye and it can gives light feeling. Maybe I have to get a copy of your book to get some ideas in sewing and designing like this.

  17. Kristy | 4th May 12

    Shared about your lovely book (and fabric!) on my blog today! 🙂

  18. Lil | 5th May 12

    I can’t wait to get your book and design my new room from using your inspirations!

    After having your new book on preorder for what seemed like forever it arrived yesterday! It’s a beautiful book full of wonderful projects Joanna – you deserve to be very proud of this publication. I picked up some California girl at a quilt show a week ago, hmmmmm….what should I make first??
