A humble thanks....

I wanted to thank you all
so very much for all of your wonderful, kind words regarding my book ~
from shop owners to friends to folks that are new customers,
the emails keep pouring in!
I'm so humbled by all of this ~ I am truly so very thankful for everyone's support of my work.
You have no idea what it means to someone like me who just likes to share what I do with you all ~
and now I get to do that on a much grander scale thanks to Kansas City Star books and all of the folks there who work so hard for designers like me.
here a just a few snaps of the projects you'll find in it...

There's a little something for everyone who loves needlework & handwork...
I cannot believe that our SHOW is a week away!
every year we get so excited about seeing all of our vendor friends and guests,...
we are looking forward to another wonderful show and hope you can come by for a visit!
we have 25 vendors this year
I can't wait to see everyone and all of their goodies :)
and I'll be holding a small book signing too, if you'd like to purchase a copy of my book
or bring along one that you already have ~
the weather is looking to be perfect for us as well ~ yay!

and of course I have to share my pretty girl Minew in the marigolds ~
...Charlie is still in the hospital
and will more than likely be there for a while
before having to then reside in a
long term care facility ~
he has pneumonia now, they think
and is very weak...
thanks also to those that are keeping us in your thoughts & prayers ~
We will be fostering his little calico kittygirl Annie in the meantime...
hoping that she & our Minew will get along and be bestest friends.
Wishing you all a most wonderful and creative day
and Happy Friday the 13th to all!
*Blessed be, my Friends*

Sending love and well wishes. So happy for your book! Goode things come to Goode people! Oh how I wish that I could hop a train or jump in the car and see the show. My heart will be there!

I am so impressed by your site and your book! Kudos to you. As I have said before, the painted saw you gave me 18 years ago hangs proudly in our home. I'll treasure it forever. I would love a signed copy of your book. Would it be easier to send it back to CT w/Tommy & Louisea? I wish I was talented enough to try to xstitch one of your patterns. My brother, Tommy, has become quite the artist too. Autumn is my favorite season also. Mother Nature bring it on...

All the best,
