Book Tour: Quilting Isn’t Funny by Megan Dougherty

Hello, hello! Well, I knew I had been away for a little bit, but little did I realize it's been 6+ months! Maybe it was the end of Google Reader or all those changes on Flickr that sent me into blogging hibernation, but yes, I realize I disappeared for a bit. But I knew I had to re-emerge when I was asked to join Megan's (a.k.a. The Bitchy Stitcher) blog hop announcing her book, Quilting Isn't Funny.

Megan has had us laughing up a storm with her blog and columns in Quilter's Home and Generation Q. She's now made it easy for us to read them by compiling them into this self-published book alongside two never-before seen pieces! One of my favorites is the essay "How to Talk to Your Teenager about Quilting." Or maybe it is "Quilting with Kids." Or maybe it is "The Break-up." Decisions, decisions!

Want to find those essays that really just make you smile and laugh because this woman just gets it? Head on over to Megan's blog to purchase a soft cover or PDF copy. If you have the patience to wait for a soft copy, which could be difficult, you should know that she will sign it! Or if you have greater patience, then leave a comment below to be entered into a chance to win a copy of the book. (your chances are pretty good since I've been dormant!). I'll announce the winner next Friday, Jan. 24.

And before I forget, here's a list of all the blog hop participants-- pop on by their blogs to see what they have to say about Megan's book and drool over their work!
