I have a bit of exciting news to share with you today! Last year I was asked by Susanne Woods to submit a seaside themed project for an upcoming Stash Books Design Collective publication.  I'm now happy to say that you'll find a nautical wreath project by myself in Seaside Home!

It is so cool to finally be holding this book in my hands! It didn't really feel real until now! Definitely had a little geek out moment when the box arrived yesterday! :)

My project combines fun seaglass colored prints with linen and beading for a little extra sparkle! It is certainly making it feel like summer in here! Wish we were closer to the real seaside, hehe!

There are lots of other great projects in the book too, of course! Especially now that summer is just around the corner, expect to see a few seaside projects show up here!

The book can be purchased from your favorite book shop, Amazon, or directly from the C&T website!

And now, I think a quick giveaway is in order! I have a copy of the e-book for one you! To enter, just leave a comment! Please make sure your email address is viewable in your profile or you include it in your comment.  Giveaway will close Thursday at 10pm CST! 

Giveaway is now closed, thanks!


Happy Sewing!

    It looks lovely, my kids both shouted out that they wanted such a wreath, although using their own shells collected last summer.
    Thanks a lot!
