Orangina is off the needles (!) and most of my current sewing WIPs are incredibly close to the finish line. I’m hoping to complete as many as I can this week because my time will not be my own over the next month. As soon as my recently ordered fabric arrives at the house I’ll be preparing 3 sewing projects for…(drumroll please)…the taping of three episodes of Uncommon Threads for the DIY network!

I’d love to pretend to be all cool about it, but truthfully I’m super psyched. Textile Fetish Jennifer, our pal Marisa and I are flying to Los Angeles in early August for the show. Our episodes are part of season 2 and won’t air for a while yet, but meanwhile I’ll be DVR’ing season 1 to see what I’m in for.

Now if I can only wrangle that book deal…

    I am so excited for you! and I can’t wait to see them. I think I may need to engage the DVR myself – I watch a lot of crafty/diy shows, but I don’t know about that one – but I’ll get caught up. Book deals are cool, but hey, I think having your own craft show would be even better!
