Milestones and a Weekend Recap

I made my tenth sale yesterday! Sold my baby sun hat pattern again. I'm thinking offering a few more patterns might be a good plan. For my finger puppets, maybe? I'm working on some new ones, and have a set almost ready for a photo shoot.

The weekend was awesome. Saturday, I got to meet one of my favorite authors, Laurie R. King. She writes great mysteries, and has a whole series about Sherlock Holmes and a character she created named Mary Russell. They're my faves, though I've read a bunch of her other books and like them too. If you want, you can read about my experience at her book tour here, on my other blog, "Inscriptions."

Saturday night, we hung out at our local library for a while, listening to a Beatles tribute band. While my hubby and Daniel were off running around, I got hit on by a guy almost as old as my dad. I'm still not sure if I should be flattered or frightened....

And on Sunday, I went to see Wolverine with a friend. I loved it. I want to see it again. Before it leaves theaters. Enough said. Mmmmmmmm. Posting a random pic from it just because that means I'll get to gaze at it every time I bring my blog up for a week or so.

And finally, I just found out that one of my favorite current TV shows, NCIS, is spinning off a new show (as yet unnamed). And that new show will star... Chris O'Donnell. Yes. The same Chris O'Donnell I have been madly in love with since, what, 1995? A really long time. Here's a pic from the recent NCIS eps that set off the spinoff, because that means I get to gaze at Chris (and Mark Harmon) for a while too. As do you.

Oh, one last thing. Happy birthday, Rudolph Valentino!


  1. Sounds like a great weekend. I the the new Spin off will be a good show...and you can't go wrong with Chris in it...And what is not to love about Mark Harmon..

  2. It does sound like a great weekend!
    I'll have to check out that author because I'm always looking for a good mystery read :D
    And congrats on your 10th sale!

  3. Baroness -- Mmmm, you are so right, you can't go wrong with Chris. Or Mark. Mmm.

    Eclectic -- I'd recommend either "The Beekeeper's Apprentice" or "Folly" for an introduction to Laurie R. King. But I've enjoyed all of her books that I've read so far. I hope you enjoy her writing!


Thanks for stopping by! Stay and chat, won't you?
