NEWS FLASH!


It's time to spill the beans.



I've got a bun in the oven.



And I've been on pins and needles waiting to tell you guys about it.



So it's time to cut the cord and tell you...


News flash!

I'M PUBLISHING MY BOOK!

If you follow me on Instagram (@theredkitchenkatie) you may have seen me signing my publishing contract a couple weeks ago. Woot! Since then I have been working working working my little buns off! (And, ahem, not getting much sleep.) Earlier today I finally got the go ahead from my publisher to let you guys in on my little (big!) secret so I am here to tell you that life is awesome and I am so, so, so, so majorly excited about getting this book published!

Basically, it's going to be a book of really simple, easy-to-sew projects. It's catered to beginners since it's all so easy, but experienced sewers will also have a blast sewing up quick and easy projects from it. There's something for everyone! Toys, home goods, accessories, snugly baby things--you name it! The photos above are some sneak peeks for you to enjoy. Though you might want to only look at one picture every couple months so you can savor the excitement until the book is actually ready. :)

Over the next several months as I'm going through the book writing process I'll be sharing some behind-the-scenes posts on what it's like to publish a book, so if you have questions, feel free to to ask and I'll answer them as best I can in the upcoming posts.

Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go do a crazy excited dance around my living room. It's real! It's finally happening! HOORAY!

Wonderful! So happy for you guys. So...you were just kidding about not being pregnant before?

Katie Lewis said...

Sorry for the confusion. I was trying to be punny, but it obviously backfired. I'm not pregnant. The "bun in the oven" was referring to my book. :)

I have been a long time reader of your blog, but for some odd reason I never express how much I love reading it or comment how cool all the tutorials you do are.
In honor of publishing your first (of hopefully many), I want to break my commenting silence and tell you congratulations! I'm look forward to purchasing your new book. :) I'm incredibly excited for you!
