Is it time for a little show on my book? I think so..
How about a freebie from the book? The Saturday Market Skirt. The timing for the project to be making it's way out into the world as a sampler for the book is amusing to me. I designed it almost a year ago, when we were still living in Idaho. I sat there thinking of summer Saturday's in Missoula and how much I loved them. The entire day-going to the farmers market, then walking around downtown. Maybe over to river for a picnic. Just lovely Saturdays, spent with friends and family.
I worked on it outside, enjoying the rays of sun on my feet, remembering those good times.
And here we are, I am finally getting to share the project with you and we are here, in Missoula again. I had no idea that by the time the book would be published we would be living in Montana again. And as I sit here writing this, the skirt is hanging in my closet and I am glancing out the window at the grass that is sneakily starting to turn green. Spring and summer are on their way, and I can spend my Saturday's in the town that inspired the skirt. How do you spend your Saturday's where you live? I hope you have happy traditions, maybe one that would require a fun, eclectic patchy skirt?
We'll be offering signed copies of the book on our new website (it's coming along so great!) and for now, it's available for pre-order on Amazon.
The book has not 15, not 20, not even 30 - but THIRTY FIVE projects in it. For about SRP of $16.99. These aren't filler projects either, nope. It's chock full of quilts, clothing, hair accessories, toys, a super cute pincushion.. I am really pleased with how the book has turned out and I can wait for you to see it!
I think I mentioned before that I did the photography for the book? Weelll, all except for the photos that Dustin took of ME for the book. Talk about intimidating. He did a great job - cracking jokes the whole time to make me laugh.
So there you have it-my big book unveil. I really can't wait for it to become available and start seeing the projects you guys make from it! I've started a flickr group for the book, so start sharing as soon as you get going! (Did I mention that the Saturday Market Skirt includes sizes for adults and children?)
