On a happier note, I finally received my copy of Amigurumi Animals, after taking 3 months en route from Europe. There are 15 patterns for crochet creatures, but I am not included in that section. I am in the back of the book as part of the Amigurumi Gallery section, where a bunch of Etsy sellers and other crochet designers have some pictures of their work and a short blurb. It’s really exciting, and I can’t wait for the day when one of my patterns is in a book!
