granny square love

I’m over the moon today to be able to share with you the cover and title of my book!

Granny Square Love will be released in September! Pinch me now!

Would you like to take a quick sneak peek?

You can flip through a few pages right here and it’s also now available for pre-order at Amazon!

I hope that within the pages you find a project that resonates with your soul!

I had the luxury of working with Cascade yarns for all of the projects in the book. Cascade 220 is absolutely divide to hook with and the spectrum of colours is magnificent.

I’d be happy to take you through the journey of how a dream became a reality, if you’d like. I could do a weekly post and take you behind the scenes. Perhaps you have a book stirring within! Leave a comment if you’d like a scheduled weekly post.

    sorry, I know it’s not all about me… but I would LOVE to hear how a fellow aussie became a published craft author, and what the process involved for you

    I too have a book stirring within me… actually the problem at the moment is there are about 101 books within, and I need to streamline them in my own head first!

    really look forward to hearing about your experiences – the good and the bad…

    thanks

    and a mighty HUGE congratulations to you – what an absolute buzz!!!

    I love your posts and would love to see how the process began.

    Again, much success!

  7. I must confess that I was so happy to come here today to find you back with beautiful color on the blog. I missed you. My confession is that I only read to “pre-order here” and was gone in a click. I ordered and now am back. 🙂 Would love to hear about your process. ~Kelly

    I had a sneak peek through, it looks gorgeous. Oh! on pge 29 OMG there was the Little Golden Book – Little Mummy.

So lovely to see it again.
