Tying the Knot is done!

Posted by Linda Hubalek on April 9, 2014 at 1:38pm 0 Comments

I wrote in my diary on April 24, 1982 that I wanted to write a book about my great grandmother Kizzie Pieratt and the many quilts she made. Although that idea started my writing career, I didn't get around to starting on Kizzie's book until 2003. Then other things in life took priority...

Now I'm proud to say the first book in my great grandmother's story Tying the Knot is finally out this…
