I’ve been off the last few days, just relaxing — not really a vacation, but more like a taste of retirement!! And now back to work so I can afford to retire some day…
Jeremy from StevenBe’s hosted a luncheon last Monday with notable author and knitter, Debbie Macomber. Yes, that Debbie Macomber! She has written a zillion books and has had some work made into movies, and recently the Hallmark Channel series, Cedar Cove starring Andie McDowell.
Debbie is completely accessible and down-to-earth. She seemed like anyone you would hang out with in your favorite knitting store or knitting group. Except that she is world famous and probably could buy and sell us all!
She chatted about her early years and the role that knitting played in building her confidence and self esteem. Her prolific writing career began after she started her family. She now owns a knitting store in addition to her writing. She keeps it upbeat in both her stories and her approach to life. I have only read a couple of her books, but I really enjoyed meeting her!!
