Books, Book Signings and De-Stashing Yarn

Friday, June 21, 2013
It's been such a busy week; where did the time go? I was surprised and thrilled that my first copy of my book arrived quicker than I was told. It was so good to finally see it in print and it is all I expected and hoped for.

I have now requested my free copies and lucked into a promo, so I got 5 extra ones free plus I ordered a supply to have on hand in preparation for book signings at the Chain Link Crochet Conference/Knit & Crochet Show.

I'm really looking forward to the show in Indianapolis and excited about the 5 classes I will be teaching.

As the  sun was waning last night, I took a look straight up from our patio. Note the incredibly blue sky!
