Sewing With Nancy Mentioned in Romance Novel, Keeper by Patricia Gardner EvansContinuing with National Sewing With Nancy Month in honor of our 30th anniversary on TV, here’s a little Sewing With Nancy trivia! What do Fabio, okay a Fabio kinda-look-alike without a flowing mane, and Sewing With Nancy have in common? The answer is found in a romance novel.

I receive many cards, letters, and packages in the mail. But when I opened a package and found a romance novel featuring a shirtless, sweaty guy on the cover, a Fabio type, I was puzzled. The novel, entitled Keeper, published in 1994 by Silhouette Publishers, had a note attached to it. A Sewing With Nancy viewer sent me the book and directed me to page 171. Out of curiosity, I turned to chapter 9, page 171 and found this interesting copy:

“What were you working on?” he asked when she sat back. The instant she’d seen him, the drawing had disappeared into the stack of paper he’d brought her.

She dismissed the drawing with a wave of her hand and a guileless smile. “I was just doodling.”

“Um-hmm…what else did you do today besides doodle?” He’d caught just a glimpse of the “doodle”: L.J. in a skimpy hospital gown.

She wrinkled her nose. “Mostly slept and watched TV. The highlight of my day was learning how to do pintucking on Sewing With Nancy,” she shook her head gravely. “It was pretty much downhill after that. . .”

The rest of the page got a little too steamy to share in a sewing blog. You’ll have to buy the book to find out the ending. Or perhaps you already know!

So, is this the part of the blog where I share how to sew a hospital gown? Maybe not. However, I will share where you can find tips on sewing pintucks!

Nancy's Giveaway Winner

Thank you for sharing your favorite travel gear projects from the 2-part series of Travel Gear Made Easy blog postings. The random winner of Travel Gear Made Easy is Sherrie. Her comment was: My favorite travel gear is my curling iron holder because I can put the curling iron in the holder hot and it does not affect anything else in my suitcase. Also, the bright-colored ribbon tied to the handle of my suitcase makes it easy to find on the carousel when I pick up my bag.
