One more progress pic

Just another quick progress pic of my alphabet quilt made from all my embroidery patterns and new fabric. I sent all my finished patterns to my mom and she's been busy turning them into a quilt. I'll get to see it finished this weekend and I'll be sure to take some nice photos soon. I can't wait!

busy busy busy

So lately I've been frantically getting ready for the International Quilt Market (booth 2151). I'll be selling/showing my embroidery patterns and kits there. For the show I wanted to make bunch of things that would illustrate some of the ideas of what you can do with the patterns. Above are some progress pics of some of the things. I'm so happy how everything is turning out! My mom has been helping with the quilting which is super awesome. In the first pic with the turtle you can see a few of the fabrics that I got printed. I'll take better pics of everything once I get a little further, but I couldn't resist sharing.

Kid Monster art for No Monster Here

Check out these amazing drawings! Whenever I or Colleen do readings of our book No Monster Here we have the kids draw what they think a monster looks like. They come up with the greatest ideas! Charlie, who drew the monster in the second image, drew a monster with lots of arms to throw lots of baseballs. But then it needed lots of eyes so it could keep track of all the baseballs it was throwing. Too cute! Check out more kid drawings in our Monster Art Gallery and check our our No Monster Here website where you can purchase your hardcover copy. You can also read the entire book online here.
