Oh, you should be proud of yourself! I am going to get my own copy and I can't wait to hold it in my hot little hands and be inspired. What a wonderful accomplishment and I do know that it was a lot of hard work.
Thank you!

(and eek! Target online! How cool is that?!!!!!) Rock on sistah!


Having a 7 year old boy means constant jean repair. This is the method I use.



I know it's fashionable but my girls don't want to hear them at all. Thanks God!!!


Oh Dear Vicki!! Congratulations on your book!! I have so enjoyed watching what you made with your wool blanket here on your blog, and have even made the flower pincushion and it has quickly become my favorite sewing accessory!! You are so talented, and I wish you so much luck in all you do!


You should be very proud! What a truely inspiration you are. I have enjoyed seeing all the beautiful and wonderful things you have made with that wool blanket. Now I can see it in a book. After reading Calamity Kim's blog about your book ...I ran to Amazon and ordered it last night. I'm so anxious to receive it! Congratulations on your new book! I know it's going to be a big hit!


I'm on pins and needles!

Kim's review is wonderful. Target too? My oh my! Congratulations!

When I was in high school, girls used to do all sorts of interesting things to their worn jeans. I remember patchwork and embroidery all over a few. 'Course we were all into silver hoop earrings and smocks, and wedgie shoes...so that gives you a clue of how long ago that was!


Congratulations on your new book! That is so exciting!


I was at a thrift store yesterday and the worker called out looking for "the mom of all those boys." That would be me. She was trying to give me some jeans she was going to put on the free table. They were girl jeans with expensive brand names with what were probably factory-made holes. I told her to put them on the rack, even with the hefty $2 price tag they put on their jeans.

Congratulations on your book!! I am sooo very excited for you and for me! My sister Loves to stitch by hand and she is going to be the proud owner of this book! I am going to get her a copy for her stocking.

I can't wait to browse through it myself.

Many Blessings and a Merry Christmas to you and yours,

REPLY: Thank you so very much Michelle, this is nice to hear.
