Look over there to the right. Yes, right there in my side bar below my profile. See that? It's a little badgie for you to click and order Gwen's new book, directly from her! The pic is clickable. Yep. That's right. Just mouse over it...and....click!
I sent off my check yesterday. You know, Gwen doesn't even have internet up where she lives on Beaver Island, Michigan. Which might mean you have to PRINT AN ORDER FORM and WRITE A CHECK. Remember when that was the ONLY way to order things way back when? But guess what? She will sign the book for you.
This one is self published via lulu.com and I really want it to be a success for her. Click the lulu link and you CAN order it online through lulu. But you won't get it signed! All you Gwen Groupies, send off your check, order your book, and then YOU TOO please place the little gizmo in your side bar to help promote this book. Do it for Gwen, and do it for me...I KNOW you will do it for me :c)
I once got an email from the gal that runs Gwen's website and she said she got most of her traffic through links on this blog! Isn't that cool? So let's show our appreciation for all that Gwen has done for the Liberated Quilting World and ORDER!
So, yesterday DH calls and says...do you need gas? I said, no, that I had filled up at Sam's Club on Thursday when I got the lenses in my new glasses. He said good..because gas has skyrocketed overnight. This makes me SO SAD. Just when I thought it was going down. I actually paid $3.55 a gallon, and amazingly that felt cheap? But now....I am wondering if I want to drive the 20 miles to my guild's sew-in this morning. That's 20 miles there and 20 miles back, and I'm so stinking mad about the gas thing. I mean, I can stay home and sew for "free"...but this is my chance to get to know the ladies in this guild because every time they have a meeting I am OUT OF TOWN!
And compared to what people from Galveston up through Houston and beyond are going through, I know this is a selfish whimpy whine. I'm sorry. I'm humbled to think that I am sitting here griping about gas, when many of you are flooded out. I'm sorry. I'm also afraid to turn on the news because it might prove to be worse than anticipated. I'm sorry. Maybe I'll stay home today and piece some relief quilts. Or SPEND the gas money gratefully and go make some relief quilts while sewing at my guild's sew-in.
OH, and a funny....
You know you live in the Southeast when your fabric and ironing board cover are so humid that you don't have to add water to your iron to make STEAM when you press! HA!:cD
Isn't this hilarious! It's from the EXTREME IRONING COMPETITION! You have to click over for a laugh.
