Sew, Write

Keeping busy

Thanks to the Modern Patchwork magazine, I finished this reflected wedges table runner without any major glitches.  And I actually enjoyed doing the binding!

I’m also doing a little celebrating this week – I finally finished the edits on my book Just Breathe over the weekend and sent it to an editor friend.   Just Breathe is my favorite story yet; I can’t wait to see what readers think of it!

Now it’s time to dig into some fresh projects… a new manuscript, a colorful lap quilt, and a few pillows and blankets for my boys’ bedrooms.  Plenty to keep me busy!    What are you keeping busy with these days?



It amazes me that all of these triangles and strips are going to join together to make one cohesive piece.  It kind of reminds me of my manuscript… I’m nearly finished with the edits but find that I am going back and doing some patchwork.  I’m stuffing  new strips of words here and colorful paragraphs there, trying to make it flow as smoothly as possible.

Slow and steady it’s all coming together, both the manuscript and this sewing project.  Though, I’m pretty sure I’ll be showing you the final result of this colorful kitchen runner long before you’ll see my novel.  😉
