    I love the frog! I have tons of fabric at home that would be perfect to use for making some of those.

    The froggies are adorable, the quilt pieces are looking great, and that doesn’t look at all like Brianna :giggle:

    I love Sew, Mama, Sew πŸ˜‰ That’s where the tissue holders pattern I mentioned is coming from. Actually, if you look to the right sidebar at my shared Google items, you’ll see I marked some of their posts for sharing! Thank you!

    Ciar, they’re not good enough to sell (that sewing a straight stitch thing again) but I’d be happy to give you one, if you tell me which you like (I have the three non-fleece ones left, so green, pink and blue and one fleece one). If you’re coming up here in December I’ll give it to you then, otherwise I’ll just pop it in the mail to you.

    You know who: clever :boobie:

    Awww…those froggies are so cute. I’m usually just a lurker here, but I had to come out of the closet–er, lurkdom to comment on them. It almost makes me wish I could sew. If I had a machine…and I was coordinated at all. πŸ˜‰

    Love the frogs, those are too cute. The last sewing I did was sewing name tags into sheets and towels before going away to school. I can’t sew a straight line even then. :chair:

    Hi Angela,
    What absolute gorgeous crafts!!! I haven’t sewed anthing in forever (halloween costumes when my kids were still cuddly, I think) but those frog softies are darling! I know the ladies who got them are going to love them.

    So sorry about Oliver kitty. I hope everything works out, and doing the best you can for him is all anyone can ask.


    PS – thank you so much for the kind words about my books. I appreciate it more than I can say. πŸ™‚

    Oh, I can’t take one for free, man. But I will see you in December! I’ll buy lunch :o) in exchange for a frog. How’s Oliver? Better I hope.

    The word “scoodie” makes me want to try to brave the sewing machine myself! The toddler wouldn’t cooperate, I fear.

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).
