A BIG Announcement!

So, if you've seen me in real life over the last few months, I probably look a little tired and worn out, which is due to a whole lot less sleep lately, which is due to the following news...

I'm writing a second book!!! 

Yep, it's true. I've been at it now since December and I'm in the home stretch. On one hand I have been dying to tell everyone, yet on the other hand I felt like if I told everyone too soon I'd have too many eyes looking over my shoulders all the time, and well, that is too much pressure for me! What can I say, I'm a sensitive gal. But I'm in the final month of writing and photographing, so with the light at the end of the tunnel, I thought it was time to tell all of you!!!

I am going to withhold all the other details (sorry!) except to say that it's not a project-based book, but rather a skill-building book, so don't get all excited about patterns for dresses and such. But hopefully this helps explain my lack of a pattern, an addition of about 15 pounds (detox cleanse coming soon...), as well as a lack of a social life (sorry friends that I haven't seen in like forever that had no idea why - I do still love you all!). In the midst of all of this I've still be working full time at the shop, teaching multiple classes a month, and most recently, writing for Craftsy. Needless to say, I'm a bit tired!

If all goes well, the publisher thinks it will be a fall release, but I know from the world of publishing that sometimes things do not go as planned. So when I know for sure, I promise much more information. 

So, was that post just a giant tease? Perhaps... but that's all I can share at the moment! So in the meantime, please continue to be understanding about my lack of all else, as the home stretch is often the most intense part of it all!
