:: the big one ::

i hinted last week that there was more good news to come.
after a week of being in various publications and hitting you from all sides this week has ended with being able to reveal the big one.


the week started with me getting very excited, possibly a little bit too, over a couple of new designs i have been working on and getting them onto screen sand printing up.


let me introduce to you flowerbeds and hexie plus...
i am really giddily pleased with these and can't wait to eek out some time to sew with them and print more colours and get them in the shop.
will keep you posted on that.

in the meantime the big one happened...
those of you that follow me regularly will know i have been harping on about a secret project for some time. 
the time has come to reveal...

MY BOOK!!

i am an author!!!
it feels completely and utterly surreal for me to say those words and even more to search screen printing at home on amazon and find this there! (altho please don't search 'karen lewis'...you will find some quite dodgy fiction that i swear isn't written by me!)

it is quite a giddy time at the moment...lots happening and i have a feeling the giddiness isn't going to go away just yet.

the book is due to be published at the end of July but you can pre-order it now on Amazon (a huge appreciative thank you for those who have done already x). Here's the link for UK and it is also available here on the US website.

more to come on it soon...i don't think you have heard the last of me!
