I can't even begin to tell you just how many times I have rung or emailed the printers over the past few weeks. Doing this book has been so stressful and it all coming down to the wire like this is giving me heart palpitations.
I rang them again this afternoon and the book is all printed, and probably by now bound. At 9.30 tomorrow morning I'll get a call confirming what time the books will turn up and then at some point between 3 and 5pm Royal Mail will arrive to pick them all up again- by this time all nicely packaged for everyone. Wish me luck!
I really have no idea how many books I can pack and sign within a few hours but I'll be doing my best.
To celebrate the book being almost in my hands here's a project I've been keeping underwraps for a while. It's a Power Puff pendant with an integrally beaded hanging hole. You literally create the hole as you work using a set pattern (which of course is in the book) that you can adapt for whichever size you want to make it.
If you like that then you'll love the star I'll be showing you tomorrow...
If you want to get your hands on Geometric Beadwork then you can order a copy here. All orders received by the time the book arrives tomorrow will be sent out tomorrow- any received after that will be posted in 3 weeks.
