A little light summer reading...



I know lots of you have already seen the cover of my book (thanks, Pam!!) so here's the back.
I happen to have a couple of extra copies lying around here...so is anyone interested? If so, you know the drill. Leave a comment with your name and someone (possibly even a guinea pig) will draw a name Friday evening!

I loved your "Kindergarten Crafts". I have a kindergartener. Maybe I'll recruit him and put out some gorgeous things like yours. Ha! I never win anything, but I'm a book fiend, so I'll try!!!

"Mr. Kotter! Mr. Kotter! Ew!Ew!Ew! Pick me Pick me!" Okay - I'm showing my age a bit.. ;) For those of you who don't get it, well, I'm sure Welcome Back Kotter is in re-runs on nick at night somewhere.

OK, I'm not lucky - it's been very obvious as I've left comments all over blogland and not been chosen. Oh, what the heck - let's throw my name in the hat one more time and see what happens! :-)

It's a beautiful book and I'm ready to order it but now we'll just wait and see.

Isn't the blog world wonderful? I'm officially a semi-new lurker, via Pam's blog via Nicole's blog, but I have to say I've enjoyed your work very much. I'd be delighted to be entered in your drawing (even though I've not-so-secretly been asking the local book & quilt shops about it)! Sheila in Ohio

Elizabeth, My mom was so impressed with all the fabulous fabrics you put together at In Between Stiches and the samples and books that were out. She was calling me and saying "BEST STORE in the bay area!!" In a time when lots of shops are closing it is refreshing to find a new one that is fantastic!
Congrats on your book!!!!

Just wanted to say congratulations on your book!! I loved everything in your booth at Market so of course I would love to have your book and perhaps do some 'personalizing' on the 4 (soon to be 6) quilts of your design that I am working on! Keep up the great work-you are such an inspiration to me! Christy

Well, I can sew it, knit it, crochet it, cook it, but I can't draw worth beans! This book would help out a Lot! Congratulations on a Dream Come True! May you have many more such Dreams become Reality!

Well, just having got here, I haven't seen the front of the book, but the back's a winner in my opinion - it doesn't get much better than words combined with quilts!!! Both are wonderful, but together?? Dynamite!
Congratulations!!!

Add to me to your list for the draw - the back of the book looks fantastic and I'm sure the contents are just as pretty. You do just wonderful work. Good luck.
