The Nine Patch Granny Afghan!

I love fast projects! This granny square pattern is inspired by the Nine-Patch quilt block pattern. It uses up all your leftover bits and bobs and can be used in so many ways; pillows, afghans, lap-quilts… I’ll set the pattern pdf up in the free pattern download area eventually, but it’s certainly a very easy “learn by the photo” pattern for anyone very familiar with granny squares.

 

 

Aren’t these pretty?

 

 

This is a great way to use up all those odds and ends of yarn…

 

 

It takes no time at all to make up enough of these “Nine-Patch” squares to put together a nice sized afghan.

Here’s the Free Excerpt of “The Waitress”…

I didn’t like the free excerpt of “The Waitress” that’s available for download at Smashwords, and here’s why…

At this time, the system is automatic, and only allows for a certain amount of the book to be available from the beginning of the story only ( in other words, I don’t get to choose where the excerpt begins) – which means that much of what the reader gets to actually read is front matter: copyright notices and legal mumbo-jumbo. To date, there have been 74 downloads of that excerpt, which doesn’t reflect in any actual sales at all. No wonder! There’s no time for the reader to get a feel for the characters before it’s all over.

I want to tease you into buying this thing! That’s hard to do when you don’t really get to meet my “people”.
Goodreads lets me do things my way. Download this excerpt for free (or read it right online if you’d rather). Hopefully, Ruby, and Judd Gulley, and The Little Drunk will intrigue you enough to drop less than a dollar to read a really funny story.

And pssst! It would really help if you share this post. 😉
