Well, this past Christmas I made the greatest, most amazing, inspiring discovery of all. You know the kind that makes your heart beat faster, and puts a smile on your face?
I came upon the wonderful world of Dottie Angel through her book. It is the book that has changed my life!! It took some 38 years to find it, but I did! And I'm so grateful, happy and excited! Now, if someone ever comes and ask me, "what book has changed your life?" I know what to answer!
So, I read the book, and looked at it, and read some more, and looked again, and decided to enroll in a crochet class, and since then I've never been the same. Then sewing, and embroidery and fabrics, and garlands and all things "granny chic" and buntings (I've had a serious weakness for them for a really long time).
The only place I've yet to put my foot in, is a thrift store (that's a difficult one for me). But maybe when her next book "Granny Chic" comes out (which I can't wait), I'll be ready for that step.
For now, I'm still learning, but I will be forever grateful to Dottie for showing me the way!

Last Christmas I didn't give my heart away, but got it stolen by a book instead!
I hope you find the book that changes your life, if you still haven't found it yet!
