24:365 On Big Rock Candy Mountain
Yesterday, upon waking up, I realized that I have a little under a month to get my act together for Stitches West. Every year, I plan a giveaway for the booth. And every year, I have a mini-crisis realizing that prepping for the giveaways takes time, and that I have once again have started late. So have to beg, borrow, and steal time away from other projects to get the giveaway together and ready.
This year, I am doing things a bit different and sharing a both with Romi. Both Romi and I love to set our goals high, very high, and then do everything in our power to meet them, so when she approached me to share a booth, upon instantaneous excitement, it quickly dawned on me - uh-oh, we could work ourselves to bits! Luckily, both of us love creating and working, and are having lots of fun concocting this year's treasures for the booth.
For this year's giveaway, Adrienne and I have made a little illustration of a knitterly woodland scene, where the trees grown ball of yarn, and dachshunds hunt for mushrooms. This illustration will be printed on organic cotton project bags. I can't wait to see them in person!!
Tomorrow I'm going to a pop-up dinner at Tartine and am SO excited. I am hoping to have a good photo to share with you. Stay tuned!
