Advancing Deadlines

The deadline for sending the advance materials to the publishers approaches
(Eeeeek! It's all happening!!)

(The advance material is a section of the manuscript, containing some of the patterns and the physical crocheted items. This is used to mock up a kind-of early version of the book, which is used for marketing.)

I've been good at working and am the kind of person who works easily within time limits, so I think I'm on track. Mind you, I keep re-reading the text and changing bits here and there. I must stop doing this and leave it for a bit.

BTW, I am enjoying this whole writing malarkey immensely and choosing new yarn is so much fun. The ones in the above picture above are Debbie Bliss Cotton DK and they are completely delish...

Right, just a short post. I need to get on.

I'll keep you posted on bookish happenings and I have a new freebie pattern that I'm working on, too.

And so the clock ticks....


  1. How exciting!!!!!!!
    have a lovely weekend, xxxxxxx Ale

  2. Hooray! It's all happening! I can't wait...the window ledge lined up with pretty yarn looks like a decorative display - I might try that in my sitting room! ;-) Well done for staying on schedule, your editors will love you! Chrissie x

  3. I love that you are getting this wonderful opportunity, you are so talented. I want to buy a copy as soon as it is released over here in the US.

  4. Thank you for giving us an update. It is so exciting but obviously a lot of hard work which I can tell you are enjoying immensely. Have fun.

  5. I love your book progress updates! You make all that hard work look like fun! ~Sherri

  6. So exciting for you and so well deserved. I am sorry that I have not been across as regularly lately but hopefully work will calm down a little now and I can visit you every post. Have a fabulous weekend. Big hugs, Dorothyxxxxxxxxxxxxx
