Book event

This morning Alice came over and we have been in the garden studio getting ready for tomorrow. It's really great to be finally working in there properly, although as you can see it is already stuffed full..



We have been preparing a few samples....



Tomorrow is our book event/demo day at Waterstones, Farnham which has come around so quick - i can't believe it is finally here.



We will have on display some of the actual projects we created for Sew Fabulous Fabric and will also be there to talk about the book and to demo a few techniques and projects from it. .. and sign copies too which feels very strange. (been practicing my signature Em x hee hee... I am very worried though that someone may ask for a message and that i will make a spelling mistake as my spelling is terrible!) I am really looking forward to the day itself but am very nervous so
please wish us both luck. And if you are local , do try and pop in, it would be great to meet you.

Finally i just wanted to say thank you for the comments on my last post and just to clarify... Magic was on the way UP the banister! We are going to have some fun with these two kitties i just know it!
Happy weekends to you.

Goodness Ginny...is the studio big enough? It looks wonderful though.

It hadn't crossed my mind that you might been practising your signature, but now that it has I'm delighted by the idea and know that that is just what I'd be doing in such a situation too! I hope it goes well and that you meet lots of lovelies. x

Hi Ginny, I was thinking of you yesterday and sending lots of positive thoughts and wishes. So hope you and Alice had a wonderful day and it wasn't too scary.

Hi Ginny,
It was lovely to meet you and Alice yesterday. You were both just like I expected you to be from your photos, very frindly and smiley. Its odd to meet someone for the first time yet feel that you know them a little already. Hope the rest of the day went well and lots of nice people bought lots of books.
Farnham is lovely, plenty of places to have a coffee and read a new book! - the book is really beautiful and just what I need to make me dust off my sewing machine.
Meeting up for a coffee and lots more chatting sometime would be good.
Take care.
xx
