I want to welcome all the new friends who recently signed up to follow my blog. I promise not to inundate you with emails and posts. I hope to get to know everyone, so please leave comments at the end of any post or go to CONTACT ME and leave me a message. I answer them all.
The 10-book giveaway was a great success. We had many entries and five very happy winners. Congratulations to all five: Sue, Jean, Debra, Shiela, and Judy. They have all received their cartons containing the entire Quilting Cozy series.
If you haven’t read any of the books, I’ll tell you about them briefly. They are cozies and take place in an upscale retirement community in the Midwest. All the characters are in their seventies and spend their time quilting, building relationships, and solving mysteries. As a retired geriatric social worker, I will admit that you will run into the occasional issue of aging and follow the characters as they find creative solutions.
The books are best read in order so you can see the development of relationships among these feisty septuagenarians, but each book can stand alone.
In May, the eleventh book in the series, Beneath Missouri Stars: a quilting cozy will be released by my publisher, C&T publishing. It’s available now for preorder from the publisher and from Amazon.
I also wanted my previous followers to know that there was a winner of the quilt that I made and donated to the Morgan County Humane Society in West Virginia. They sold raffle tickets for several months and a winner was recently chosen. Congratulations, Cindy!
I have encouraged quilters to consider making a quilt as a fundraiser for your local animal shelter. The one I made is pictured below. I’m thinking about doing a blog with the directions for making this quilt if there is any interest. Let me know.
So, in closing, welcome to my new followers and to my previous followers, I thank you for reading my books, responding on my blog, and continuing to follow me on WordPress and Facebook. My very best wishes to everyone in the new year.
