I found myself in a kitchen wares store the other day. I hadn't been there in years, and when I first walked in, I couldn't think of one thing I needed in that store. After a complete walk-through of the store, I settled my eyes on a wall of stainless steel pots, and after deciding on one and nearly calling it a day, I hollered over to the salesperson, "Would you happen to have any pizza stones???" I have no idea what made me think of a pizza stone at that very moment as I have never seriously considered buying one until months ago when you recommended Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day, but you also noted that I would definitely require a pizza stone. But I didn't have the book, and I really think in these cases that the book needs to come before the stone. However, the store had a pizza stone, and I threw the pot back on the shelf, and I bought that pizza stone. And it's a very good thing that I did!
Thank you SO much for the book and the fabric and the skirt pattern (I will make oodles of them!), and most of all, thank you so mother flippin' much for the crocheted acorn basket! Honestly, I think I screamed when I opened the box. Well, and there was the unicorn card! I'm still not sure how that one got past me. You've been holding on to that one for a while. I'm impressed. And humbled. You did good.
How'm I supposed to top that?
