My book is on Amazon!

I know I know… I owe you all some fresh content on my blog. In fact I’m almost embarassed to be writing a new post without sharing something new, but I’m so excited I just had to post about it.   I am now selling my first e-book on Amazon – available in the Kindle edition.  See: http://www.amazon.com/Modern-Machine-Embroidery-Applique-Projects-ebook/dp/B00MZGT1UC/ref=sr_1_11?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1408890051&sr=1-11&keywords=modern+embroidery+designs

And here’s the even better news…(drum roll, please)… it’s only been live for less than 24 hours and I have one spectacular review (from a buyer of the book on Etsy).  Yay!

So in honor of this momentous event, I want to offer you, dear blog readers, the book for free when you purchase any two designs on my Etsy site.  Just send me a convo after the purchase and I’ll email you all the files.  And if you really, really like it – I might just hit you up for a review.

Thanks so much for being tolerant of my bit of self promotion here… I’m just super excited.  I promise to get back to some helpful and informative blog posts soon.

The best birthday gift ever for my sister: loads of sewing books!

What in the world should I give my sister for her birthday?  This is the question that has been racking my brain for the past two weeks since her birthday.  (Running just a little bit behind…) But – it’s not like I can embroidery her something…. she can do all this herself.  And since I let her use any of my designs, (sisterly benefit) anything I might make for her – she could make herself, and in a way that she would probably prefer.  So what’s the point in trying to make her anything?

I finally came up with an idea when I was buying supplies for Halloween costumes on Amazon: sewing books I drool over.  The cool thing about these books is that they are available on Amazon via used book sellers.  The cost of the five books ranged from $3 to $10!  Sure – you have to add in a few dollars each for shipping – but that’s still a pretty great deal.

Hopefully these books will provide my sis with loads of inspiration and fun projects.  The only thing I am worried about is being able to part with them myself to wrap them up and give them to her.  I will keep you posted about whether they are all as good as they look!
