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.


  1. I'm looking forward to seeing the Waltham finished. It looks beautiful.

  2. Now for the fun part...SEAMING!
    Just a lark for some, but a tedium for others.....(guess who?)

  3. One word, Julie: Woohoo!!!!!
