I’m done. Hooray! Six months of planning, making, styling, shooting, drawing and writing has drawn to a close. My deadline has been met and now everything is with my publisher to work their magic. They’re at the Frankfurt book fair at the moment with the blad (a small draft sample of the book) and I can’t wait to hear how it’s been received by everyone there.
It’s a lot of work producing a book, but I love coming up with ideas, making things and shooting them. To help me through the last bit of writing I would laugh to myself imagining I was Carrie Bradshaw, sitting on my bed with a laptop writing Stitch in the City! I don’t know as yet how much I can share about the details of the book but as soon as I do I will let you know. If you liked my last book I hope you’ll like this one too.
I took these photos in my studio. This embroidery is a test sample I made for the embroidered window panel project in my last book, The Homemade Home. Please have look out for it if you haven’t seen it yet!
My other work has been on hold while I have been concentrating on the book but I’ve jumped straight back into the deep end with a commercial shoot last week, an editorial shoot next week and I’m also taking the Blogging Your Way course to try and get a little more knowledgeable about this whole big social interweb thing. It never stops!
