Thank you so much to everyone who has purchased the Highbrow Hobo Pattern... I'm so happy you like it. Thanks also for being patient at my monumental cock-up during the initial technical difficulties (where part of the pattern was missing). All fixed now - ahem! I'll do the bag winner announcement tomorrow.
So some of you may know that yesterday I had an meet and greet with a publisher. Which means yep, I MAY (the word "may" is in shouty bold capital letters so as not to tempt fate) be writing a bag making book with them. Nothing is set in stone so I'm not taking anything for granted and at the same time I'm trying hard to not...EXPLODE!! Well, the meeting went well and the commissioning editor is a lovely gal ("Hiya!") and we spent hours gassing about craft in a very enthusiastic, animated and giggly way. Just my kind of afternoon :)
So at the moment I'm all an fluster as this is a very exciting (and surreal) time for me. Whether this comes to fruition (this time round or not) I really want to thank all my readers for reading/using/commenting on my blog. This blog is what I do and you have been so openly generous in your support of it - and publishers and editors read this blog too and they see that you dig my work. All of this is very kooky for me, but it's fun to see where this can go. Hoo Hoo!
Hopefully that should explain my infrequent blog posting of late. I'm blessed to be so busy (so I'm not being a moany pants), but lately I've have had deadlines coming at me (with spears) from all angles. After this weekend I will have caught up with lots of stuff which will be great because I think I've a cold cubbigg...
So, back to that deadline then. If you get a quiet moment to yourself have a listen to the tune below. I know I will.
If you fancy a dreamy romantic interlude:
- Empty the room of folks
- set the volume a bit high
- find a comfy chair
- hit play
- sit back, close your eyes
- listen to the gentle words and that sexy string section - ahh luxury!
