I have a tendency to get too tangled up in the ‘to-do’ list. Once I cross something off the list, it’s quite literally off my mind. So, at any given time, I tend to have a rather lengthy list…and once in a while, I get a really nice surprise!
That was the case earlier this week, when I received a delivery from DRG, the company that publishes Sewing Savvy magazine. The surprise was inside–a fresh-off-the-press copy of their new Sew It in a Weekend hardcover book!
Two of my designs are included in the collection of 57 quick-to-complete projects. The Autumn Print T-shirt features fabric printed leaves appliqued on ready-to-wear t-shirts. Express Yourself features quick-to-construct bags with tips for making simple stencils and using Shiva Paintstiks. (I’d forgotten how much fun those were to make!) Plus, there are tons of projects by sewing greats like Linda Turner Griepentrog, Carol Zentgraf and Lynn Weglarz.
