I'm Marcy Singer, the "fictional" heroine of The Quick and The Thread, the first book in the Seven Year Stitch Mystery Series. I migrated from San Francisco to beautiful Tallulah Falls on the coast of Oregon to open an embroidery specialty store. (In San Francisco, I was an accountant. It was a good job, but I so prefer being my own boss.) The name of my shop is the Seven Year Stitch. It's called that for three reasons: One, it’s an embroidery specialty shop so I thought Seven Year Stitch was a really cute play on words. Two, I’m a huge fan of classic movies. And, three, it actually took me seven years to turn my dream of owning an embroidery shop into a reality.
I have an adorable Irish Wolfhound named Angus O'Ruff. He's a year old, and he is terrific. He loves being indoors; but since I have a fenced backyard, he also enjoys spending time outdoors. He especially likes sprawling on the swing.
My friends Sadie and Blake own the shop next to mine. Theirs is a coffee shop named MacKenzie's Mochas. They're terrific. Sadie was my college roommate, and she is--in large part--responsible for my being here in Tallulah Falls.
That's enough about me for now. Tell me about you!
