Hello friends! It’s been a little while since I’ve posted on my sewing blog! Things have been crazy busy with my new book, and I’m currently writing the next one. I’m about halfway through it and hoping to be finished by Christmas. Fingers crossed!
I would like to invite you over to my author blog where I post a few times a week – sometimes about writing and publishing, sometimes about my adventures in the creative world. I’m going to be posting my sewing adventures over there too, so please pop in and visit! You can even sign up to receive my blog posts by email (just type in your email address under blog subscription) so you won’t miss any news, fun, or giveaways.
I hope you are having a wonderful fall! Can you believe the holiday season is upon us?? Time goes so quickly these days… if only we could figure out how to slow things down a little. ;)
Happy crafting and sewing!

Contest ends September 5th. Good luck! And thank you all, so much, for your support and excitement as I begin this writing adventure with my debut novel!
I haven’t been sewing for a little while, but I do have a good excuse for my absence…
My debut novel is coming out in September! Don’t you just love the cover? I’m so pleased with the designs that my publishers chose. And I’m so excited to share my book with you!
I’ll be posting upcoming info on my author Facebook page, so pop over and join me if you want the updates.
Hopefully I’ll get back into my sewing projects now that things are calming down here a little. And although I haven’t been very good at leaving comments, I have been visiting your blogs and love the projects you’re posting! You all are so inspiring!
This sprocket pillow was super fun to make, and really easy too! Find the tutorial here, from Allison at Cluck Cluck Sew.
Don’t you just love sewing gifts for friends? And then teasing them with little sneak peeks when you’re finished? :)
Is it just me, or are things getting crazy busy? With so much going on before summer vacation starts and a manuscript hogging my attention, I almost forgot to sew over these last couple of weeks. Almost.
But even in the throes of chaos, there’s always time for playing with pretty fabric, right? Maybe I’ll have this baby finished by the end of the summer! :)
Even with a little mishap (eh hem, cutting up too much of my fabric in class and having to buy extra to make up for it), I’m having a blast making my very first quilt. Tonight I finished sewing together 40 blocks and I can’t get over how pretty the fabrics are together. Sew much fun!
While my current manuscript is being edited I’ve decided to go ahead and start writing the next book. So far it’s going really well – already in the first chapter the characters are surprising me with their personalities and secrets! If you’re curious what these stories are about, you can click on my sidebar’s Pinterest logo (or my flower profile pic above) and get a visual of each book. Lola is the manuscript that’s being edited at the moment and Kate is the story I’ve just started writing.
Reading, reading, reading… I’ve had my nose buried in some awesome books lately. My latest favorites:
These Is My Words by Nancy E. Turner… by far the best book I have read in a long, long time. An incredible story, characters that came to life with every page, and a love story that made my heart nearly burst from my chest.
Somebody to Love by Kristan Higgins… I can’t get enough of this author’s books. Her stories are always comical and sweet and so much fun to read.
The Last Boyfriend by Nora Roberts… book two of the Inn Boonsboro Trilogy. I’m only halfway through, but loving it so far. Have I ever not loved a Nora Roberts book? ;)
