Lovely Little Patchwork...my first book!!

I'm so excited to share some exciting news!!  Last year I started working on my first book through Tuva Publishing.  When they contacted me asking if I'd be interested in writing a book I was excited, nervous, scared but most of all so honored they'd choose me out of the tons of talent out there.  I still have knots in my stomach as the April release date becomes closer.  Hoping and wishing the book is loved by everyone.  I have put my entire heart and soul into the book and each project. 


The projects are all ones that I designed and put a lot of thought into...sharing what I love to make and what I thought you would also enjoy making.  Some are favorites from my past like my Little Red Riding Hood doll and my sweet Vintage Planter Pincushions.  There are also pillows, a pot holder, quilts, tote/back pack, a placemat, and many more.

  
Here are a few more pictures of some of the projects...

I can't wait for the book to be released in April.  It seems like just around the corner! If you would like to pre-order Lovely Little Patchwork you can through Amazon here.

Hugs,
