I talked my daughter into giving me an early Birthday present. She took me to see Melissa Gilbert (Laura of Little House on the Prairie) who was in town, yesterday, to promote her newest endeavor, a cookbook. The cookbook is wonderful and as a bonus it has many photos of behind the scenes things and stories of the Little House TV series, and in the book she also answered questions that have been asked regarding the series. All in all a very fun cookbook, and she was very entertaining. She talked for a little over an hour, including letting the audience ask her questions. At the end, she signed the all cookbooks. The audience was so large that they ran out and not everyone was able to buy one, they brought 100 books to sell at the promotion – they hadn’t expected quite so many people, I had told my daughter we needed to get there at least an hour early, so glad we did :). Yesterday was the 1st day of it’s release, so my daughter and I got one of the first 100 books sold on the first day of it’s release. It was a very fun day!! 🙂 She is a delightful person :).
I am working on 4 knitted items, in this order – a comfort shawl for a friend who had her twins too early and they didn’t live (it’s close to being done), the scarf from the handspun from a friends sheep’s fleece, finishing the sweater I promised a very special little one, and a pair of prairie boots I promised another special person. 🙂 Pictures will be provided when I am done with each. 🙂
