I know... you thought that I forgot about the book giveaway...
I didn't. I drew it today. Congratulations Candy - you're about to receive your own copy of my book YOU SEW GIRL. I hope that you enjoy it.
It was a little late in the drawing because I was out all day on Friday. I was at the beach and at a party and generally nowhere near a computer (just an iPad, occasionally).
My poor book-writing brain had reached its limits, so I took the day off... and then took Saturday off as well (spent with family).
It felt a bit like wagging school (not that I ever did that... girly-swot that I was), but at the same time it was absolutely necessary. Shut down and restart.
It's the Easter weekend, after all....(I know that because of the number of sucking-up-to-Easter-Bunny cards found about the house).
I'm back into the manuscript now - at the creative, tarting-things-up end of things while I await the feedback from pattern-testers. I also have to finish off a bit of sewing to do. (Manuscript-finishing is akin to blog-finishing, it seems. There are linings to be made!) There is much to be done, but the end is in sight. I can begin to breathe again.
I enjoyed sewing up the last of the hero-pieces for the book in this gorgeous Echino fabric, although it was almost too pretty to cut up.
