Giveaway winners and more!

The great Randomizer has chosen the winners and they are...

Melinda C
One Shabby Chick
Sassy T

Thanks to everyone who entered the giveaway.  I made sure every entrant was accounted for by writing them down as they were entered in the comments section.  I have more giveaways to come, so if you didn't win this one you'll get more opportunities in the near future.

On another note, and at the risk of making myself extremely vulnerable, I'd like to share the news that I'm in the beginning stages of writing a book.  It's so beginning, that I don't even have a publisher yet. However, I've already written the intro and 3 chapters plus illustrations for the designs.  The concept of the book is what really excites me, but it probably wouldn't be too smart of me to share EVERYTHING just yet.  But, I did decide that I would open up about the entire book process since I've benefited so much from other's in our sewing community as they shared insights about their own book publishing journey. 

Anywho, I debated for quite some time as to whether or not I should go straight to a publisher or solicit a literary agent.  After listening to several pod casts on the topic and reading several more posts, I decided to go with the latter of the two and contact a literary agent.  So, that's where I'm at today with the book... waiting to see if my idea has wings.  If nothing comes of it, then I figured I've got a lot of great blog material and a couple of fun new patterns for the upcoming year.



Cheers,

Jamie
