lucy’s first hike

s copy
I have been daydreaming about this day since I found out I was pregnant- packing up Lucy and taking her on a hike. And while I am in love with the ocean, I might be just as in love with the forests that tower over the ocean here on the Oregon Coast. There is something magical and amazing about the fern lined trails that twist and turn through miles of enormous trees that seem to touch the sky and I couldn’t wait to share it all with Lucy! It was a short hike and despite muddy trails, Lucy’s first trek into the forest lived up to all my daydreams.

sew wild is almost here

My friends I am so excited because I just received an advance copy of my new book Sew Wild and I have been eagerly reading through it all (over and over again). Getting to hold a real copy in my hands is SO exciting because this book was a labor of love! Writing a book is hard but writing a book about sewing (even if it is about break the rules sewing) is REALLY, really labor intensive but so worth it when all is said and done.

The book looks amazing! It is shaped in a square and is 143 pages packed with all kinds of ideas and inspiration, techniques and projects.

And the best part is that is comes with a DVD of your truly demonstrating all kinds of additional concepts and techniques!


I will be sharing lots more as the release date gets closer (Aug 29th) and will also be offering some brand new online classes inspired by the book and blog tutorials that will hopefully get your inspired to start sewing wild!
