No. 12,800 ... No. 32 in Sewing Books? Okay, okay, no worries...all good...


Okay, I'm sufficiently freaked out.

Yeah, okay, I'll admit that I check my Amazon book page. I check how it ranks in sales. Last I checked a couple of weeks ago, it was down there in the No. 200,000-something slot.

Today, um, Sewing Clothes Kids Love is ranked No. 12,800 of all books? And No. 32 in sewing books? The book isn't even out yet. Last I heard, not until February 1st. That many pre-orders for an unknown commodity? Deep cleansing breath...

Thank you.

I'm excited. Absolutely stoked. Butterflies in my stomach. And freaking out. I hope I did a good job.

Thank you.

Did I mention, "thank you?"

Thank you.
