good news and bad news

The good news - I got accepted into Bust's Holiday Craftacular! Bust is a magazine I've subscribed to for about five years. For the last three years, they've thrown a huge holiday craft fair in New York City. Thousands of vendors apply and they accept about 200. I'm pretty proud of myself.

The bad news - I've been in the hospital for a month and couldn't possibly make it to New York next week. I don't even know if I'll be out of the hospital next week. I think most of the folks that read my blog have already heard about the hospital stay, but just in case - we're stuck in Berkeley. I've got pancreatitis and had my gall bladder removed on Wednesday. Good times. Perhaps I'll post a longer update later, but there's some hospital-made chicken pot pie waiting for me now.

I'm so proud of you! It will be so great to be the sister-in-law of a famous crafter. Also...I miss you.

I'm glad you're at least up and posting, and eating chicken pot pie! Get well soon.

I'll go staple some fabric together and pretend to be you. :(

I feel so bad, cause that would have been awesome. Plus, selfishly, I would have loved to have Ms. Penguin so close.
