I apologies for the lateness of the blogpost especially when I have so much love and respect for this girl…I have been sidelined, by our annual show, Assistant on Maternity leave and overall catch up of running a company but throw in husband away, a nor’easter, leaky roof, and two needy pups and I am so not the burgeoning career girl I’d like to be.  Well Trish I have one thing going for me…It’s still the 10th!!  I wish you much deserved kudos and am thrilled for your success!! Be well!! love, me.

Because I Love You Sew

I remember receiving the amazing news in person, from the acquisitions editor at C+T Publishing, that a book proposal I had submitted almost a year previous, had been accepted. I was so excited I thought I would burst. I mean literally, burst!

One of the very first people I saw that same day, who gave me a big bear hug and whispered “I knew you could do it!” was a sweet friend who had mentored me, had been a listening ear, had been supportive and encouraging in so many ways. That was Jennifer. I am so incredibly thankful for friends like her.

Rarely do I work on sewing projects that don’t incorporate some piece or part of Sis Boom fabrics. My love of vintage and eclectic bright colors are what have always drawn me to be a huge fan of Jennifer’s artwork. It was only natural that I would want her beautiful fabrics to be a part of this book.

You will find hints of Jennifer and Sis Boom all throughout this little book of mine. Her gorgeous fabrics make me happy and they inspire my sewing.

This book, Because I Love You Sew, is all about sharing your love for others through hand making gifts. It’s also about telling the story of the why and how of the process so that everything from the first stitch to the finished product and the use of the item, all become one seamless story of your life’s journey. Marking a place in time.

I hope you will find a way to make some of these projects a part of your story for friends and family. It’s a wonderful way to tell them how much you love them sew.

C+T has been so generous to offer a giveaway of a book to one of Jennifer’s readers. To enter, simply leave a comment telling us about a favorite handmade gift you have made or received.

I’ll do anything!
