A Very Big Secret

I've got something exciting to tell you: a secret I've been bursting to share for months...

I've written a book!

A whole book, with 35 fun felt projects designed and stitched and written by me! (Eek!)

It's called Super Cute Felting, and it'll be published this autumn (8th September 2011) by the lovely people at Cico Books. This is the draft version of the cover:


I've been working on it since the end of last year - regular readers may remember a few secret things popping up on the blog in recent months! It's been pretty hectic juggling book stuff with all my other crafty business stuff,and I've had a few slightly panicky "omigod! what if no-one likes it!" moments, but it's been lots of fun too.

I will of course be blogging about this again over the next few months as the autumn draws nearer... I can't wait! :)
