Progress!

Thank goodness for a few days off. This morning I finished all of the Waltham pieces and blocked them, too. I'm hopeful I can start seaming tonight and plow through the button band and shawl collar before the Barton KAL starts Wednesday. I know. I'm too ambitious, but a girl can dream, can't she?


I can finally show you something else I finished: the logo for the Arkansas Fiber Festival Extravaganza. Remember how I got paid with Bijou Bliss for a graphic design job? This is it! I worked closely with Anne Bean and her team and this is the result. I hope the logo helps to make the Extravaganza a tremendous success.


I'm very happy to have the Bijou Bliss because I'm going to use it for the Barton. I love the color, made even more spectacular because it comes from the dye vats of Lorna's Laces.


Don't forget to qualify for the free Chevron Collection e-book giveaway! Leave a memory of a miliary service member or veteran - click here to learn more. I am so grateful to those who have already left their loving stories. If you have a chance, read the comments; every family has a story. Or not.  Raylene, a Mennonite whose family doesn't participate in military service for religious reasons, shared the name of her friend, Andrew, who is active duty. Many non-Americans have left memories; thank you for participating, too. We can all hold brave women and men in our hearts this weekend, regardless of our country of origin.
