So sorry I've been so absent and without a word. I appreciate your e-mails asking where I've been, and I apologize if I haven't responded yet. I know it is summer, and my work life should slow down....but it feels like it hasn't. I still get as many e-mails during the summer as I do during the academic year, and I just have a lot going on. That, combined with trying to spend some real quality time with Sweet Pea and Papa Pea (which we've been doing) has kept me hopping. And that has left little time for blog writing or reading! So, I'll apologize for not being by your blog lately and not being very responsive to comments. I've read all your comments and really appreciate them! I will try to get back to them. I will also be by your blogs soon. I sort of feel like I need to get into the swing of things again!
Many of you had asked about the Quilted Fish Design Team's book, which I blogged about in my market posts. Well, you are in luck! This week, we are hosting a blog tour for the book. I am a day late with this post, so it's already underway. There will be copies of the book given away at each post, other prizes, and little tutorials for you to enjoy. We hope you love it! So, stop by and check things out each day. Here is the schedule:
Monday, July 2nd: visit Julie's Blog
Tuesday, July 3rd: visit Sally's Blog
Wednesday, July 4th: visit Candice's Blog
Thursday, July 5th: Come back here! I'll be hosting it that day!
Friday, July 6th: visit Johanna's Blog
Saturday, July 7th: visit Jackie's Blog
Sunday, July 8th: visit Brooke's Blog
And if you can't wait to get your hands on a book, here is where you can order one!
They are really reasonably priced at $18, and you get nine patterns in the book! That's only $2 per pattern!
I'll be back in a few days with my contribution to the book tour. Then, I'm going away to my annual retreat at Gruber's in Minnesota. I'll be home for a few days and then gone again for a week to New Hampshire to celebrate my parents' 70th birthdays! So, I may not be back to regular blogging for a short bit, but I'll try to get some blog posts in along the way.
I hope you're all enjoying a great summer!
Until next time,
