So excited. 
I've had designs in several magazines, but this is my first REAL book!
If you get a chance, check it out, it's a lovely collection!

work work work :)

Hello! Hello! 
Sorry I've been gone for so long, I've got (another) new job that is keeping me busy. 

I now have 2 jobs in addition to "The Stitcherhood" (a labor of love, however mostly for fun... copyright violations (theft) make it virtually impossible for many designers to make a living with just designing.

Last October,  I got a job with the "Athens Area Arts" a local group that promotes all local art events (music, dance, theater, painting, photography, sculpture, poetry - you name it, we promote it!). I really enjoy it.

NOW I've got an additional new job as the business manager at our local dance studio, "Factory Street Studio" (which is awesome because my daughter takes 6 classes there a week - tap, ballet, pointe, modern, jazz, hip hop - and I feel like I'm always there anyway!)... my dream job!

I am so blessed - I love ALL of my jobs! :)

I do still plan to keep designing - it is my passion - and here is my latest release:

Hope you all are doing well and enjoying the summer!
