Holiday Heartbeats Short Story Series

His Epiphany is the first in my short story Holiday Heartbeats series. Each story is a fun, quick read, and the heroes are guaranteed a happily ever after (HEA). This first story is yours free when you sign up for my newsletter!

Remember the post about a story that I started, and had no clue what would happen to poor Riley? Well, shortly after Thanksgiving, he was determined for me to give him an HEA ASAP. Seeing as how I’d publicly humiliated him by sharing the most embarrassing moment of his life with all of you, I figured I’d go ahead and give him his peace – just in time for Christmas.

It’s Quiltin’ Time! My “H” Quilt

The end of the year is coming so quickly, and I almost don’t have enough blogging days to cover all the topics that I want to talk about! That’s a wonderful way to close out the year. One of my 2018 resolutions was to try out quilting as a hobby. Well, I love it, and I’ve completed more projects than I can write about here, but I simply have to include a favorite every now and then.

My “H” Quilt

My last big quilt of the year is what I fondly call the “H” Quilt. One of the characters in my latest novella has a grandmother who created a quilt with the letter H as the predominant pattern. I was so inspired by it, I decided to make a quilt just the way I imagined! Admittedly, I’m sure that Mrs. Hanley’s quilt is leagues and bounds more beautiful, especially with the quillting part, but I am so proud of imagining a design and finding a way to make that thought into not only something tanglible, but also useful!

I love the vibrant colors, and the alternating pattern of lights to darks certainly gives the quilt a festive look. I didn’t use any sort of fancy quilting technique during the process (I finished this one up in one day); I also haven’t even started binding it. Too many end-of-the-year deadlines are taking priority at the moment, but I’ll get to it in a few days.

Inspirational fabric makes the backing of this quilt as much fun as the front. What feels better than warm love and little bit of TLC at the same time? This was a fun project, and I look forward to making more quilts in the coming year. What are you looking forward to?

Sending Love and Light to all of you.
