My first gem of good news is that, James, who is far off in a land called Boulder, starts his new job today, as an Account Manager for Laser Cycle USA. He loves Colorado and now that he is gainfully employed, life is really good.
My second gem is an email I received this morning, it reads as follows:
Congratulations! The felting tip you submitted through nickyepstein.com has been chosen for publication in Nicky's new book, Knitting Never Felt Better,
by Sixth&Spring Books. Please write me back with your mailing address, and we will send you a free, signed copy of the book as soon as it arrives in our warehouse! We will also post the winning tips and stories on Nicky's Web site closer to the book's release date.
Thanks for participating, and Happy Knitting!
I remember submitting the tip ages ago and thought no more about it, in fact I already have the book pre-ordered on Amazon, I guess I will have to go back and change that order.
Enjoy your Friday, I hope it brings a smile to each and every face.
