It's Here, finally here!!!

Introducing, hot off the press....drum roll please...this is so exciting..
Adorable Animal Applique
Can you believe it, it's finally here!  I have to pinch myself to be sure I'm not dreaming and my very first book is published!!  
Thanks to the great people at Annie's Publishing!!! 
As you can see, from the front cover, these are some of the jungle theme projects...  
 But wait til you see the monsters and sea creatures.
There's a bed scarf (which I'm lovin' these), a jelly fish pillow and the angle fish rug in the set.  I jumped out of my box and designed a couple of rugs.  It was fun to use the "Shannon Cuddle" fabrics on the rugs, they are sooooo soft and yummy!  And I might add, very easy to work with, you should try it (grin)
The monster set has this wall hanging, a huggy pillow, a friendly monster pillowcase, and a soft monster rug (also made from "Cuddle")
These are just a couple of the projects in the book.  I will be posting more pictures of the other projects soon.  Let me know what you think.
I have to give a HUGE THANK YOU to the following people and companies that helped make this book a fun and exciting adventure:
Brandy Mascher
for her AMAZING quilting on all the projects!! Not to mention her unfaltering patience with me (smile)
Sharon Frank
of Annie's Publishing, super lady to work with!
Riley Blake Fabrics
for the perfect "Zoofari" and "Shades"  fabrics
Timeless Treasures,
for the beautiful Batiks that were used on the sea creature set
Shannon Fabric,
for the super soft, yummy Cuddle fabrics, love this!!
The Warm Company,
for the batting and "Steam-A-Seam" without them I couldn't applique!
Aurifil Thread

Can't wait to start on the next one......maybe I'll wait just a bit,
like after Spring market?!

    It`s funny coming across your web site through the 100 Blocks promo and then seeing your book as I'd been lusting after it since seeing it advertised elsewhere. The fish and monsters are too cute!

  5. I love those fishes. Where can I get this book?
