The book that never was.

Believe it or not, I have a new pattern in the works!  It’s been a long time coming.  About 5 years ago I was casually approached about writing a sewing project book.  I declined at the time, because I knew I would go nuts trying to fit it in.  Then, a couple of years ago I got it in my head that I really could write a book.  So I spent a lot of time sewing samples, trying to get projects together and finalized.  I started writing a book proposal.  But you know what?  I was SO wrong.  I can barely put out one pattern at a time.  What made me think I could put out a book?  So I stalled out and felt creatively frozen for a few months.  Oh well.  Live and learn.

So my next pattern is a favorite from my book that never was.  It’s cute.  I’m happy with how it’s coming together.  It should release in the next month.  I’m happy to be feeling that pre-release excitement!

Here is a shot from the photoshoot.  We were all done shooting and I thought my sweet model might enjoy some shots with a bunch of balloons.  Here’s to all of us busy people who manage to do a little something that we love on the side.

    Well, I’m looking forward to seeing the new pattern! Isn’t it amazing, the things we discover about ourselves? And doesn’t it come as a relief when we figure these things out?

Craft Apple

An apple a day keeps the doctor away, right? Well, crafting is my apple. It’s what I do to maintain my sanity while taking care of my family. I homeschool my three boys, ages 14, 15, and 16), am a quilter, a bagaholic, and pattern designer.  Oh – and I also like taking pictures.
