I have taken advantage of no school for the kids and done some sleeping in and lazing round this week. The boys and I caught a movie, A Haunting in Connecticut. Weird, supposed to be true. And now it is back to work. I have almost finished one the 6 projects I had sitting around. It should be done this afternoon, applique and all. I will then start in on the second color option. Wish I could show you, it is a mix of applique and piecing (of course) one color way in red and cream, the other in homespun and 1800s. I am very pleased with the way it turned out, which is more than I can say for the project I had been wrestling with. One of those deals where the design on paper did not translate in fabric like I thought it would. So that is a project for a different day.
A major announcement (for me), my book is now available for pre-order on the pickledish.com website. It is very exciting to see it there and available. We spent alot of time on the cover and I think the final result is good. I hope people will find it interesting and will be inclined to pick it up and give it a look. It is kind of like Christmas, months of build up and then there it is. Done, over, what now?
