Our New Book Is Here!!! Small Treasures From Scrap Quilts: More Simply Charming Quilts

Our latest quilting book is here!  I’m so excited that the finished product is in my hands and ready to share with you!

Dig into those scrap bags of leftover bits and pieces from previous projects! The author of Simply Charming: Small Scrap Quilts of Yesteryear is back with a fresh collection of small quilts to help you make the most of your scraps. From a simple nine-patch classic to star-studded charmers, you will find the perfect project for every skill level in this scrappy medley of 14 quilts reminiscent of days gone by. Quilt designer Tara Lynn Darr again took inspiration from her overflowing scrap bag to bring these little treasures to life with 1800s reproduction fabrics. Most of the blocks can be made with 5″ charm squares of smaller pieces of fabric. To help you achieve the best results when working with these small quilts, Tara has included her time-tested tips. 64 pages, 14 projects

I’ve been away – but I’ve still been playing!

I took a bit of a blog break which started last year and ended now. I had so many projects going on and commitments and family issues and things.  Plus I was really upset that Google ended the Reader program – I just couldn’t find another blog reader that I really like, I was getting frustrated and I just quit reading blogs all together, I guess I lost my “umph” along the way for my own blog.
Anywho – I’d like to show you the cover of my new book (this was one of the projects keeping me busy!) that will be out in April of this year.  Kansas City Star is my publisher again, and as always they have done a fabulous job!

What do you think of the cover?
Also – in my stand off from reading blogs because I was so frustrated at the loss of Google Reader, I have found something very similar that I wanted to share with you in case you feel my frustration and have not found this on your own yet.
The Old Reader
(just click the link below when you are ready to visit this page and see what you think!)
I love everything about this reader that I have found and I’ve been happily reading blogs again for about a month now!
Also, I’ve found an app that I like to use on my phone and my IPad now!  I’m such a happy girl!
Feedly is my new friend for reading my favorite blogs on all these new-fangled electronic devices that have bombarded into my life!  LOL  Check them out!
OK. enough for today – I’m off to do a little more editing on this new book, then a new quilt pattern that is in progress is yelling at me from that magical room I call my Sewing Kingdom!
Have an awesome day everyone!
PS.  King Harley, Miss Dalilah and Miss Bella said to tell you hello and that they’ve missed you all and your comments as much as I have!  They are so happy Mom is back to blogging!
