Silence is golden

I haven't posted recently....gee, I hope someone noticed!

The silence was because I've been really busy. I was contacted in October by a publisher that I had corresponded with last winter/spring. They are intested in a possible loom knitting pattern booklet of my designs.

I sent in a proposal to them in November. In December, I was told that they liked the proposal. That began the loom knitting frenzy. This box....

has been shipped. I'm pleased with the results...hope they are too. Keep your fingers crossed (when you're not knitting).

I've spent the past two days catching up on sleep and cleaning house. Bits of yarn from trimming tails had traveled to far corners around the house! I even managed to tame the yarn in my studio (put steins back into their proper cubby). I can now walk into the studio without tripping on yarn (hahaha).

Doesn't the word "studio" have a professional sound to it? I had called it my "craft room" but a friend of mine referred to her space as a studio and I love the sound!

I also managed to find the supplies for February bead class samples. Yay! That will be today's fun (after teaching classes).

Tomorrow, I get to cast on to the circular needles and start a new pair of SOCKS! And I'm already planning a new bead weaving project....or three.

Gosh, whatever will I do while I'm waiting to hear about the booklet? hehe

Good to see you back blogging. And I did notice!

Someone told me to take myself seriously if I want to be taken seriously as an artist, and to call my work space what it is....a studio. So that's why I began saying it. Sometimes I still slip and call it a craft room but then I quickly say studio. The more you say it the easier it becomes.

Now I wish you would get busy and do something instead of sitting around eating bon bons all day!! Wow! The list of things you have lined up makes me think I better start some new projects.
