It’s Quiltin’ Time! Pillow Talk

This Doesn’t Count As Quilting, But…

So, while in the midst of creating worlds and waging a daily battle of fleshing out 2-dimensional characters, as you likely know by now, my acquired hobby of quilting keeps my hands busy when my mind needs a break.

This has actually become a really exciting hobby for me, because it’s fulfilling in the sense that I get to be creative, and it’s practical, because I’m actually making things that can be used. The most satisfying part is knowing that I make beautiful projects that I gift or donate to others. Quilting is truly a labor of love, and since I’m all about love and kindness, happiness and romance, this is an artisan skill that is absolutely right down my alley. But for every quilt made, we also need pillow cases!!

I love These Pillow Cases!

My latest project stems from a monthly sewing club at my local quilt shop that I’m starting to visit on a regular basis. The club president is dynamic, kindhearted, and has the absolute best sense of humor with an incredibly infectious laugh. I’m pretty sure that at least a small essence of her personality and temperament will manifest in one of my recurring characters in an upcoming work. I look forward to really getting to know that character, as well as the actual person who’s inspiration behind it!

In the meantime, these are my lovely pillow cases, the first made for a dear friend who happened to fall in love with the fabric when we were shopping together. The second set is likely for my niece.

I was so excited about the  outcome, I just had to share!

I'm a writer who believes that everyone has the right to love and be loved, consent is not optional, and souls connect beyond the boundaries of race, gender, nationality, or language. Love is Love. It always has been, and it always will be. Because I do my best to live a faith-based, holistic lifestyle, aspects of this will often be reflected in my work. This is an integral part of who I am. My novels, short stories, and novellas have main characters that are strong-willed and purpose-driven, and there is always a happily-ever-after (HEA). The stories vary in heat-level, from sweet young adult first-love romantic stories to contemporary romance tales with a dash of suspense and tastefully sensual moments. I hope that you’ll join me on my journey, and get to know and love my characters and their stories as much as I do.
