Fruitful Hands: A collection of sewing projects and recipes to nurture your soul
by Jacquelynne Steves
I was trying to decide on a title for this post: Order Fruitful Hands! or maybe, Order Fruitful Hands Now! (even when I added "please" to the title, it still sounded bossy.) Anyway, it is available to order NOW!! I will have an actual copy of the book in my hot little hands sometime this week (I hope). Find it on the Kansas City Star website here!!!
I am very excited about my first book! It has 88 pages of projects, recipes, and lots of little watercolor illustrations and drawings & doodles that I did. You can look here for a sneak peek at a few of the pages (you can even grab one of my recipes while you are there...)
The cover photo shows my favorite project in the book, the House on a Hill quilt. It features the following quote embroidered on the quilt:
A house is built of walls and beams,
A home is built with love and dreams.
There will be lots of contests and giveaways when I have a few copies of the book, so STAY TUNED! In the near future, I will also give you a sneak peek of some of the other projects in the book.
I have really enjoyed the process of putting a book together. I started on the projects for this book about 3 years ago- and here it is, finally!! Right now, I have 4 or 5 more book ideas in my head- if only I didn't have to sleep, maybe I could get them all done....
