It's official!!

Well, I feel like I can actually clarify it.....dh says it's official....I'm a crochet designer!

I just got a call from my 'person' at Annie's Attic and they want 4 out of the 5 patterns I submitted for dogs. I'm so thrilled, you just can't imagine.

I would post pics but I haven't made them yet, just the schematics.

So, if you don't hear from me in a while, you'll know why. I'm crocheting my fingers off. I have until April 20th to get it ALL done.............. can you say 'overwhelmed'?

YAY ME!!!!!!

I am going to be published!

I'm so thrilled. I am going to have 2 of my patterns published in a book. My 2 Tea Cozy patterns (along with matching coasters) are going to be in a book called 1, 2, 3 Skeins to Crochet by Needleworks. I'm not sure when it is coming out as it is still in the stage of verifying patterns, but you can be sure I will let you know.

Here they are.....

And to think. This whole design thing started because I couldn't find an apple tea cozy anywhere. Well, cheers to my son for saying 'mom, just make one.' Easy as that, huh?

I am just so excited!

I miss her already

What a time we had when mom was here. She got in on her birthday 2-26-08 and stayed for a week.
Of course Sam was the first one to get to her with a big hug!
Here we are waiting for her bag. This was her very first flight and, can you believe it, her luggage was lost. However, they did deliver it to her the very next morning, so that was good.
We went shopping and my mom bought Sam her prom dress. Keep in mind this is not as good as it looks, or as good as it's going to look. Would you believe that THE dress was actually the cheapest and she can also wear this for graduation, so two birds with one stone. How often does that happen?? It looks great on her though.
I have more pics of her stay but Photobucket it co-operating right now!

We got some snow here this morning too. A lot of the Dallas area got a bunch yesterday but we got ours this morning. It's still cold and icy but it's going away.
Here's another pic. Now, if I remember correctly, this is why I DON'T live in Canada anymore. Don't like the snow. Oh well, I'm sure it will be more Texas like on the weekend....let's hope.
