Fun for Me!

First up, I received an e-mail newsletter today from Mary Engelbreit (the company, not the person), and I was reminded that the cookbook for which one of my recipes was accepted is coming out next month.  I hopped over to Amazon and searched, and found the listing for ME's Fan Fare.  I clicked on the "look inside!" link, chose index, scrolled down to main dishes - chicken, and found my Auntie Lynda's Comfort Chicken Casserole in print!  Blogging is so fun and has brought me so many new friends and opportunities! 

Earlier this month, I received the announcement that another of my patterns made the second OYW book!  Hooray!  The gals sent me the fabric last week to sew up the item, and I just love it.  The fabric is from the Alexander Henry Fashion For Home Collection.  I need to check out the rest of the line.  The fabric itself is a very lush home-dec weight.  So, now I have to complete the instructions so no errata belong to me down the road and sew the item up in the chosen fabric.  I'd really like to make it to Minneapolis for the next book launch.  Wouldn't that be fun?  Since I'll be part of both books, now,  I think I could plan a trip like that.  I've never been to Minnesota, and I believe a little visit to the Mall of the Americas might be in order.  Is that still a cool place?

You know it has been a while since I've written one of those prayer letters to God. I find they really are helpful. Even if God's timeline is not ours. It is good to get it out and read it and have Faith that help will come. Good for you. I'm so happy to see you get in print. There is something that just makes us believe in ourselves when we see it in print. Great stuff!!! I'm so happy for you.

congrats on your recipe and new pattern in OYW two!!! that's totally awesome! My b-day was last week and my hubby picked up a copy of the first OYW's for me (at my prompting). I'm soooo glad I got it, there are some amazing projects in there!
