Merry Tilda

     The preliminary illustrations for Merry Tilda have arrived! They are terrific ... and early! Merry Tilda, A Winter Fairy Tale, is my first children's book. Before the summer ends I will share this joyous book with all of you.

     That Merry Tilda.  You put a needle and thread in her hands, and she starts looking for fabric. She might end up with a tiny stitched owl, or an embroidered tea towel, or a crocheted princess purse.  She might end up with a string of cranberries. Here you are, Merry Tilda. A little piece of black corduroy and gold thread. I wonder what you will come up with.

     Merry Tilda, you've been much on my mind lately.  I'm eager to introduce you to my family and friends. Soon, soon. 


  1. Congratulations on your new book.

    I can't figure out how to Follow your blog. I'm sure I'm just overlooking the Follow button.
