Over the last two months, we've collected 300 recipes for the book. THREE HUNDRED!!!! Now, I am wrapping up the book by trying proofing all the recipes, getting the personal pages coordinated, and I hope that it will be ready to go to the printers by the middle of this month. HOORAY! This should be a great money maker for the guild this year. We plan on selling them at our November show, but if you want one before then, just leave me a comment or an email, and I can make arrangements to send you one. They are selling for only $10.00 each, and I can ship one at media mail rates for about $3.00. Of course if you want more, the mailing rate doesn't go up by much at all. They make great Christmas gifts, too!
This is our Crazy Dog, getting ready to go out to his sentry post in my garden this year. Each year, as he ages, more and more parts go awry, just like mine do. This year, wonder bond glue and duct tape did the trick. He had a shattered ear, and two broken back legs. Last year he only broke one of his legs, so somewhere during the winter, he had a fight, I think. I don't think he will be going to the spa this year like last year for a new color. It's sort of late and I need him in the garden, watching over all my strawberries!
I'm hoping to get a majority of the "leaf" embellishment completed on the WIP today. I went to stitch group last night, and in two separate conversations, the same idea came up....one that I had already thought through and actually had begun before I left home. There was one slight difference, and I have to think about that one before I commit to it though. Here's where I started before I sat down to make this blog entry:
My sewing machine is out of it's bed in my sewing table, and of course, you know that no flat surface shall go unadorned in a sewing room. So Clyde has come to the rescue.
So now, I am off to make those parts I've promised myself. I MUST get them done!!!!!!
