    Hmm….crafty…well, I DID make a purse from that one post you had. And framed some anime posters so now my bedroom has a certain geek chic charm to it.

    But thanks really for that purse post, I really like mine. I did add a closure to mine after that picture, but the rest is the same.

    The Yellow Brick Road quilt pattern is a nice quick one to do. I’ve made several of those. I like that one especially if I’m working with a particular theme (getting ready to make one with all coffee prints) or with variations of one color (made one all in shades of purple).

    I made a quilt from squares before. It was easy enough but you have to keep the seams perfectly straight otherwise the squares look more like parallelograms. Choose either a quarter inch or half inch seam to avoid some squares looking smaller than others.

    Halloween costumes are fun. Try making Brianna a pumpkin suit. She’d be so cute. A little orange pumpkin.

    A blanket and a stuffed dinosaur. My deadline is by Christmas.

    A baby blanket for a friend who had a baby in August. I started in May, and … got sidetracked. Well, really, I was going to crochet it. Then knit it. Then the random striped crochet ripples caught my fancy and I started that. And realized very shortly that I didn’t have enough yarn. So I bought more. And waffled on whether to frog what I had or just continue. Then something clicked 2 weeks ago and I decided to just continue. It IS supposed to be a random stripe… 🙂 It’s actually coming along really well now and it looks good!

    Yea for you! Looking forward to seeing some pictures of your first quilt. I always have about 3-5 projects going at once. I must be commitment-phobic. And last week my 11-year old son & I started putting together a kit we bought on vacation this summer. His first attempt at sewing. He’s doing very well so far.

    I’ve been busy making soap and lotions. I have a new afghan I want to knit and a chenille throw to finish crocheting.

    It’s fall, and the air is getting crisp, so soon I will pull out my crocheting.

    I used to be big into afghans and stuffed animals, but for the past couple of years I’ve been hooked on doily crochet.

    A while back I found a neat pattern for a block doily, and then you use single stitch to make heart patterns on the block. Now I want to use excel to make my own block pattern with different designs for different seasons.

    Yeah, I’m a geek.

About Me

Angela James

There is nothing worse than writing a bio. And writing one for your blog sidebar? Blech. Maybe you landed here via Google, followed me from Twitter (does that make you a stalker?) or maybe we met at a conference or you clicked a link from a comment I made at a blog you visited. Hopefully whatever I said didn't make you so mad you came looking for a picture to throw darts at (yep, that's me up above, in my favorite cowboy hat) but instead drove you to find out more about the amazingly witty and intelligent person behind the amazingly witty and intelligent comment.

However you found me, who you found is Angela James, executive editor of Carina Press, Harlequin's new digital-first press. I'm passionate about digital publishing, my mission is to drag people to the digital dark side, one reader (and author) at a time. I'm also Brianna's mommy. At my blog you'll get an odd mix of personal and professional posts about parenting, publishing, books, cooking, sewing and life in general. Come back often, comment frequently and go green—buy ebooks!

Please note that this is my personal blog and my opinions are neither that of Harlequin, nor representative of their opinions.


Find Me Here

First, I blog once or twice a week at theCarina Press blog, talking about the job, the authors, the books and other things Carina Press. And, of course, you can always find me on Twitter. Or Facebook, if you prefer (mostly the same content, one feeds the other). I also run the Carina Press Twitter and Facebook accounts. Social media, it's where it's at (well, it's where I'm at, anyway).
