It's available for pre-order on Amazon.
It ships at the end of September.
It's in stores in October.
Kelly and I will be at Quilt Market in October to schlep it.
We've been working on this thing for over a year.
I want it out already!!!
In other news, I've been missing around these parts this summer. I'm kinda blogged-out right now. I don't really have anything interesting to say and I haven't been sewing much lately.
I have a new job. I didn't want a new job. But we have teenagers who play expensive sports and take expensive music lessons and we need another car. So mama had to get a job.
I work at Cincinnati Children's Hospital on the cancer unit. I'm still adjusting to the vibe here. I wanna cry everyday, all day. I can't really talk about what I do or the patients and families that I see. Breaks my heart watching these mommies and daddies see their babies go through such an ordeal. But they're being treated by world-class practitioners here, so it's not all bad.
I hope that my kids starting school this week will help me get back to more of a routine. I was away on vacation last week and for the first time in a long time, I was inspired to sew and sketch. I've had a creative block for a few months and I think it lifted after getting out of town and seeing some cool stuff.
So what's in store for me over the next few months? Well, I've gotta get my hiney in gear and start the self-promo game. Gotta sell some books. I loathe pimping myself. Makes me feel dirty. But, I've been watching marginally-talented people in this quilt game get mass exposure just by using social media. It's like taking NyQuil when you're sick: you know it's gonna pay off, but boy howdy does it feel nasty going down.
More soon. Promise.
