bending the rules

I’ve been back not yet a week now, and while I did not suffer from any jetlag, I am suffering from my usual time management issues. The weather has turned pretty icky, so I don’t much feel like doing anything (like running. Uh oh). Anyway, you have all by now read about Amy‘s splendid book signing for her equally splendid book, Bend the Rules Sewing.

The book signing was held at local fabric shop Bolt, and it was packed. My primary concern was that I had arrived too late for donuts, but as luck would have it, there were plenty.

My big plan was to take photos of people eating donuts, but it didn’t quite work. Here I tried to force Sam to eat his donut so I could photograph it, but apparently asserting, “EAT THE DONUT! EAT THE DONUT, SAM!” is not particularly encouraging.

Since Melissa is a tender mother (with a very cute haircut), she did not force Sam to eat his donut until he was safely tucked away in a quiet corner.
Anyway, it was a great time, and I was happy to see a host of bloggers and crafters, including the always stylish Sally, the prolific and productive Susan (whose book, Bead Simple, is available for preorder on amazon), the great crafty organizer and podcaster Diane, and many others. Good times, people, good times.

    It was good seeing you last week. I thought about you over the weekend while I was scarfing down some coconut cream pies from Dahlia Bakery and cupcakes from Trophy cupcakes. =)

    And I thought of you last weekend because it was the 40th Anniversary party for Cheeseboard – street blocked off, music – the whole shabang.

  4. Well, I’m glad you didn’t miss out on the donuts, since I wouldn’t want you to get all ugly about it if you did! I hope you post some pics about your trip. How many times did you go to Beard Papa’s?

    Hey, I think I saw you right when you arrived but didn’t introduce myself. I was chatting with Susan and juggling my nephews — we were taking up so much space, what with two babies and a 6’2″ guy, that we left before long. Was it really you? Maybe next time we can actually chat a bit.
