Excited! I'm Working On A Book!

I got a really good laugh last night when I posted the following comment on Facebook:

Within 2 hours I had received the following comments (except for the last one) (plus a whole bunch of 'likes') in relation to my original 'status':

I figured I'd better straighten things out so I added a new 'status' which read:

OK. I need to clear something up. I'm not WRITING a book. I'm making one out of fabrics, fibers, threads, and all that other ephemera that I love to play with. But...after all the comments, I might just think about writing one! :) Thanks for your encouragement.

Which then prompted the following comments from my dear and wonderful family and friends...

  • Janet  Oh, that's cool!... but yes, you could be an author, I bet!
    15 hours ago ·

  • Tami  Yes she is good! She could make a great Fiber Arts book.
    15 hours ago ·

  • Stephanie  Write a book about making one: )

  • Annie  My new fiber arts book - with Scooter (Darold) in it - edited by Tami - first copy going to Pat...will begin with all these comments that have me ROFL!.

  • Devon  I would SO buy a book you wrote Annie!!

  • Wallis I like everything you write. It gets me to be relaxed.

  • Jan  well maybe you should write a book on how to make one of your funky books...step by step because that is what people need..Very few have your creative mind and would need total guidance..I see that with my teaching...#1 do this , #2 do that etc.etc.

  • Tami  Or maybe teach your purses AND books. And tell stories throughout.

  • Annie I just LOVE you guys!!! All this encouragement is wonderful!!!

I'm STILL laughing. This is funny shit stuff!!!

And I'm pretty sure there are friends that still think I'm writing a book so this blog is to hopefully clear up that misconception. 


(Wish I knew how to put a smiley face on here).

Anyway...the picture at the top and those that follow are the book I'm working on...

It's about 24X11 inches...

And is no where NEAR completed -

These pictures are just the base.

And I got another "spread" done this morning - but no picture yet. :)

If you'd like to see my last completed book, click here.

I'll be posting two more blogs today or tomorrow with pictures of a couple other books I've done.

And if you want a tutorial...just let me know!!!

I'll write a book!!!

Create Your Life,
