I get to post another Whatever Wednesday. The pressure to actually do something so I'll have something to talk about on Wednesday's is quite stiff. :-)
Today is my oldest daughters birthday!
Happy Birthday Sweetie!
I crocheted this blanket for her recently and thought I'd share it today since it IS her birthday gift.
On another note - I am excited to announce I will be allowed to participate in a very large book signing hosted by the Rapid City Library. It will be held at General Beadle School Saturday, April 16th from 1PM till 4PM. The panel discussion is between 1PM and 2PM and the signing is between 2PM and 4PM.
Here is an excerpt from an online article by Susan Braunstein
