Book Cover and Mid Month Winner!

Hi there! I hope you are having a fun week so far. I'm running around like a crazy bunny trying to finish up last minute things before I leave for Chicago tomorrow. David packaged up all 75 kits for me and I have them packed in my carry on bag! I wonder what the scanner people in the airport will think about that. hee,hee,hee.


Well, I'm soooooooooo excited to show you the cover of my new book! The floss will be on the back cover and the bunny on the front. My graphic designer Trish used "The Scarborough Hares" pattern and my Valdani 3 strand floss collection. I think she did a fantastic job. I love it!


 Now we're working on the inside pages. It has to be ready and to the printer by August 1st in order for me to get it back by early October. Needless to say, between the book and Chicago I have been working 16 hours a day since the end of April. This explains why I haven't been commenting on and visiting blogs. Please know I love you and miss you and will by for a visit soon!


Alrighty then, onto our Mid Month Madness winner. The random number generator selected #99 out of 194 entries. So the winner is Laurie of West Texas Threads! Send me your address Laurie and I'll post your felt to you right away. Congratulations!


Just a note that I won't be back here with a blog post until next Wednesday, the 26th. I will be posting photos from Chicago on my Facebook page, (see the right sidebar for link and "Like" my page for updates) so you can hop over their for a peek. I promise to show you lots of photos here when I return. Stay tuned for a special offer on my Fabled Fusions book too. :)

Hugs and have a fun rest of your week and a creative weekend!

Your friend,
Michelle
