THANK YOU! #1 ON AMAZON!!


I am over the moon -my book is number one in Calligraphy book sales and it wont even turn up when you search Calligraphy-trying to get that changed! I am also number 2 in Graphic Design Books! and Almost in the top 10,000 list!!
I've posted some images there of book pages if you'd like to take a peek!


I'd like to share this poem with you I received from my friend Hilde, written by a young woman dying of cancer-i dont usually do this -but this really touched me

SLOW DANCE

Have you ever
watched kids

On a merry-go-round?

Or listened to
The rain

Slapping on the ground?

Ever followed a
butterfly's erratic flight?

Or gazed at the sun into the fading
night?

You better slow down.

Don't dance so
fast.

Time is short.

The music won't
last.

Do you run through each day

On the
fly?

When you ask How are you?

Do you hear the
reply?

When the day is done

Do you lie in your
bed

With the next hundred chores

Running through
your head?

You'd better slow down

Don't dance so
fast.

Time is short.

The music won't
last.

Ever told your child,

We'll do it
tomorrow?

And in your haste,

Not see
his

sorrow?

Ever lost touch,

Let a good
friendship die

Cause you never had time

To call
and say,'Hi'


You'd better slow down.

Don't dance
so fast.

Time is short.

The music won't
last.


When you run so fast to get somewhere

You
miss half the fun of getting there.

When you worry and hurry
through your day,

It is like an unopened
gift....

Thrown away.

Life is not a
race.

Do take it slower

Hear the
music

Before the song is over.

So exciting! and I'm a day off. I've been telling everyone that it comes out July 1st. Eeek! Also, we're announcing it in CraftCat (goes out Tuesday or Wednesday) and putting your DVD on sale in celebration.

Such congratulations on all fronts!!

HI Lisa!
It's lost luggage Robin...(AFF last year)? So happy to see you have a blog and all the well deserved press you have been getting! I saw you in Mary Englebreit! I was so happy for you and now with the #1 book title! Your a rock star. Maybe I'll see in Long Beach at the quilt show.
