(Revised 13/04/2010 book pre-order list now includes USA!)
Well now I have spilled some beans I can start sharing more goodness from Cotton Floss. So today I will take you on a trip backwards to the book photo shoot journey so you know where I have been.
The images for the book were taken over a series of 3 or 4 photo shoots and I ended up with loads of photos to sort through. The days were humid, filled with a little stress, a gazillion mosquito's and two other special peeps - but they were also fun, enjoyable and such an amazing moment, there I was photographing Cotton Floss.
It was important to me that Cotton Floss was an extension of my blog, of me, my style so I chose to take all the pictures at the Lymer ranch also known as Mum & Dad's place.
I did have helpers - my assistant stylists Mum and the little one.
We ended up with 400+ photos (of course not all could squeeze into Cotton Floss) but over the next few weeks I will share images here and there of the journey - some are even those extra shots we just couldn't squeeze in so consider them as behind the scene views, because each one tells you the book story.
There are 12 projects in Cotton Floss and I hope you fall in love with each one like I have.
Maybe it's the way this little village of toadstool houses sits and looks at me. But it's these little pin rests that make my heart sing - maybe shout even.
Bless the little cutie patooties....I wish I was small enough to live in there.
They came to the shoot with their own candy, I surely did make myself sick on those sweets and ate them by the handful. I classed them as a great stress relief product at the time, they also made my dentist very, very happy.
The best news is you don't have to wait long to get your hands on a copy of Cotton Floss. Publishing date is set for early May so only about 3 weeks away. If you wish to get in early and pre-order your copy you can do so at these stores (Aus) Cookies & Cream Craft or Quilt Fabric Delights - awesome. If you are in the USA you can pre-order at Daisy Cottage Quilting (a pre-order page will be up on her site soon) - double awesome.
Next time on the Cotton Floss journey I will tell you about 'The Big Bag'...
