My boyfriend and I really enjoyed your video. How original and different. I can't wait for the book to be for sale. Put me down for a copy. Autographed right???? 8-). Great Job.

As soon as the music started, I was smiling....and never stopped.

btw.....I just won some Dupioni FQs in a blog challenge - and I already have that scarf patt, right? Even with the correction. So I'm thinking that might be a good use.

Love the video. Was planning on commenting that the only thing that could make it better was a unicorn, but then there was one!!! Can't wait for the book.
