My New Book...

Dot flowers

With great excitement yesterday I opened a parcel which contained an advance copy of my first professionally published book.

Front cover 

The book is filled with lots of gorgeous projects featuring Hugo, Felix and introducing Mr Bird. As many regular readers know I will be in the UK to launch the book at Festival of Quilts in August, so please drop by my stand F47 to see the projects and if you like them you can purchase a signed copy of the book.


A big, thank you must go to my editor, Lin who was patient and took alot of trouble making sure everything was just the way it should be. David and Charles, the publishers have done a wonderful job, the photography and layout of the book is just gorgeous and its going to be available in French, Dutch and Hungarian. Should you want to order one the ISBN number is 13:978-0-7153-3757-8 (US 10:0-7153-3757-2).

Just look at these 'purrfect' kitty cat pincushions....

Missing posts....

Many of you have emailed me to ask why two of my posts have vanished?? I have removed them as a precaution, having been warned that by advertising that you could make PJ's from my flannel fabrics I could run the risk of being in trouble if a pair caught fire as the fabric bolts clearly state the fabrics are not suitable for childrens sleepwear.
