Thoughts on book writing + a sneak peek

Sneak peeks of my first book
I'm working on the last section of my book! All the stitching is done.

It's really weird, I have to say. You live with something for so long. Look at the same patterns and projects for months and it kinda consumes you. And then all of a sudden it's done. Gone. Sent off to the publisher in a big box.

Just when I started twiddling my thumbs because the stitching is done, it hit me that "oh yes, I have to actually write the book too!" So that's what I'm doing now. Writing, writing, writing every day. I like that. The writing, the concentrated writing like this, is a weird process too. Every day when I sit down at the keyboard to start, my head feels completely blank. But then I tell myself to just start with one thing, just get the ball rolling. And it really does. The more I write, the easier it flows. I'm almost sad when I stop for the day! Funny that...

Well, I thought I'd share just a few sneak peeks at what I've been working on for the past few months. Hours and hours of stitching... Of course, I can't reveal much! ;-)

By the way, I may be in need of a few peeps to test some sewing patterns for the book. If this is something you think you might be interested in, please email me. - you will of course be sworn to absolute secrecy about what I send you! And also be able to analyse why something isn't making sense (if that is the case) and such...

PS: don't forget the Polka & Bloom sale ends tonight! 20% off all embroidery patterns and ebooks in my shop. Use code: LUNCHBOX at checkout to apply the discount.
