Back in March I wrote this meandering post about (among other things) making gnocchi with Julia (that's the gnocchi part of this post) and sort of looking at myself and my daughter from different points in time. I had included some pictures that Bill took for me, of Julia and I rolling out the gnocchi dough.
This image was one of them. A couple months later I received an email from Kim Wulfert, of Women on Quilts and Quilters Spirit (that's the quilting part of this post), asking if she could "use a small version of your picture on your
march 22, 2009 post. It would be about 2x3" to be used in an eBook honoring
women's creative stories about life for women from 1902-1942. This was a
fundraiser writing challenge and the eBook will be distributed for free."
I said yes, of course, and she told me she'd send me an email when the eBook was up.
A couple of weeks later, I received another email from Kim - the eBook was up.
And yes, it's now October - a full six months later. And I'm finally letting you all know about it. (That's the procrastination part of the post.)
Well, better late than never, right?
I cleaned out my very clogged inbox not long ago and found this "It's Up!" email, and after spending a week or so feeling like an idiot, I've gotten past that and want to share the eBook with you. You can find a link to it either here, or here, or by clicking on the link to the right.
So make yourself a cup of coffee (or tea), get comfortable, and read through the stories. They're definitely worth your time.
(Oh - and the apple pie part of this post? My picture's included in the story "The Art of Apple Pie, by Miss Jordan Anderson.)
Thanks, Kim, for including my picture! I'm honored!
