“Wishing on Buttercups” by Miralee Ferrell Book Tour starts February 10th

Wishing on ButtercupsRelease Date – February 1st, 2014


Can Love Survive When Secrets Collide?

She’d kept her secrets safely hidden—those from her past, and those in the present. Some things, Beth Roberts knows, a lady simply doesn’t share, even in the 1880’s West. The townspeople would never understand. No one ever has.

Jeffery Tucker, a handsome young writer, has kept his own secrets. He doesn’t have a right to pry into Beth’s affairs but finds himself strangely drawn to her and intrigued by the whiff of mystery surrounding her.

Beth knows that one day someone will unravel the threads of her past. And when two men from her past arrive, the truth might just hurt . . . Beth’s future and her heart.

Featured Quilt Site – Cluck Cluck SEW

When I was setting up this new site for my Book Tours, I thought it would be fun to add my love of Quilts!

I contacted Allison at Cluck Cluck SEW, and she gave me permission to share the photos of her wonderful Quilts!  You can read more about her on her site here 

I asked Allison some questions about Quilting, and wanted to share them with everyone –

1.  How long have you been quilting?
   I’ve been quilting for about 7 years, but I sewed a bit before that.  My Mom was a quilter, but she did more intricate designs that she’d work on throughout the year…so I was drawn to a more quick and easy approach to quilting!
2.  What kinds of patterns do you have in your shop?
   My style is more simple, and easy, and my patterns definitely reflect that.  I like symmetrical quilts and quilts that look like they took a long time but were very easy to assemble in a short amount of time!
3.  What is your best advice to a new quilter?
   Start small.  Don’t plunge into making a King size quilt…it will only leave you frustrated!  Instead make a table runner or baby quilt…something that you can learn the basics on but it also doesn’t cost a lot of money.  You will feel less frustrated and more likely to stick with it!
4.  How long have you been blogging and what motivates you to keep it up?
  I’ve been blogging about 7 years, shortly after I started quilting.  I love keeping record of my projects, and I started my blog just to keep track of what I was making before I sold or gave the quilts away.  7 years later and I still love taking pictures of quilts and writing posts…there are time when I’m more busy now (cause I have 3 more kids now than I did when I started!) so I don’t post as regularly, but I still love sharing what I make with fellow quilters.  It gives a great feeling of community!
5.  What are you working on next?
   I have a few quilts in the works just for fun…and I work on them a bit here and there in between “daily life” stuff.  I also have a few more patterns to release in the late fall, and I just turned in my art for my second fabric line with Windham Fabrics.  I took the whole summer off from “work sewing”….so now I’m playing catch up and getting some ideas out of my head and onto paper (or fabric!).
Thanks Allison!

As the only child of a single mom, Jenny Collins wanted nothing more than to be part of a large, rambunctious family like the O’Briens. Ironically, though, when her mother married into that family, Jenny found herself feeling more like an outsider than ever.

Now, after years in Nashville as an established songwriter, Jenny’s drawn back to Chesapeake Shores to collaborate on a Christmas production…and to make peace with the past. As if that’s not challenging enough, Caleb Green, the singer who broke her heart, has followed her to town, determined to win her back.

With the help of a little O’Brien holiday magic, will Jenny and Caleb find a way to make sweet music forever?
