The Most Exciting News Ever!

Let's chat for a minute! I want to share some exciting news with you... I have been working my little heart out over here on a super secret sewing project. I am working on a book with Martingale. Did I just type that? Seriously, pinch me!!! This is such a dream come true for me. Years ago, when I would thumb through my quilting books (pre-internet), and see the little That Patchwork Place logo in the corner of many of them, I never thought I'd be writing one. Talk about surreal. The only bittersweet thing about it is that my Dad isn't here to see it. He would have been thrilled! Anyway, I can share more as we get closer to the time that the book is available. I just wanted to let you all know because I appreciate so much the support and encouragement I receive from you all. I've been spending every spare minute right there in the above picture. Lots of late night and early morning sewing going on over here. It's definitely my happy place and I feel really truly blessed and humbled beyond belief. It should be a really fun book! Thanks for listening and letting me chat :)

Have a Happy 4th of July to all my friends in the states! 

Happy Sewing!
xo Erin
