Sweetness

I have to say, after working on it for a year, then waiting for a year, having this book alllllmost out is the most fun I've had in a long time. Getting to give it to my friends. Having my grandma leave a teary voicemail when she saw the book was dedicated to her. Sitting with my husband as he looked through it, slowly, one page at a time. Utter sweetness. I love this part.


I made these little lollipops to give out at speaking events. The "instructions" make me grin every time I see them.


My daughter is delirious that we have hundreds of lollipops in the house. It's an exciting time for everyone, not just me!


I also have hundreds of these little postcards to spread the word about my book. I've given out a lot but now I'm worried the remainder might never leave my sewing room. So here is a little plea for help: If you have a free-motion quilting class you teach, or a quilt group you lead, or a fabric store you work at, and you would be able to get these little promo postcards into the hands of interested quilters, can I send you some? If you'd like to help, send me an email (afewscraps@gmail.com) and let me know how many you might be able to distribute in the next month or so. I'll get them in the mail to you, and include a couple of the lollipops too! All claimed! Thank you generous quilters!

Hope you are all enjoying the richness of summer. The little one's nap is almost over and then we're off to enjoy some fresh air.

A day late, that's me......I am teaching a make up class tomorrow! I don't have another regular class scheduled until October, but I will make a note to share with them anyway. Love your lollipop idea....very cute.

I don't have a venue for passing out the cards but I CAN vouch for the sweetness of the book!

A big congrats on the book. It is just wonderful. I have sat and just enjoyed looking at it. There are a couple of projects in there that are on my "gotta do this" list.

Congrats on a really fabulous book.....I just bought the digital edition (gotta love technology) and thoroughly enjoyed it. I'll be doing a workshop on QAYG in the fall and be sure to mention your book. It's not until mid October....it sounds like you would like your cards passed out sooner than that, otherwise I would love to pass some out.

I can definitely pass some out - I'm teaching a FMQ class in early September, helping with a quilt show in late September, have a friend who's working with another quilt show in October, and have another friend who might put them in her shop! I'll send you an email!
