Five things I love today:
1. I felt fast & hard for the Alexander Henry fabric that small hands posted today. Beautiful little apple + pear print, will you be mine? Hopeful googling hasn't turned anything up yet, but I'm determined.
2. I got another wholesale order out the door: people in Denver will soon be able to find my knitting cards at Fancy Tiger (which looks like a mighty cool store).
3. Speaking of my knitting cards (like how I just slipped that in there?), they were recently selected as an editor's pick in the Interweave Knits Holiday Gifts issue:
(they're in the picture frame on the upper right side of the picture.) As a knitter (albeit a currently nonpracticing one), what I have to say about getting my cards into IK is: yay! I think I'm going to have to start up one of the projects in this issue so I have an excuse to carry it around with me (I have my eye on the pattern for a sweet little pair of cabled fingerless gloves).
When I'm making these, I'm just playing around with colors, but when I get them all together for pictures I can see that I'm a big fan of green for the rings, & I'm feeling sort of fallish when it comes to the pendants. The black/avocado ring on the far left & the purple pendant on the far right are custom orders, but the others will find their way to the site (when I get a chance) or to my upcoming shows.
5. Oh, Russell + Hazel binders, you are ridiculously expensive, but I think I love you. What if you really did make dread paperwork tasks that much better? Will you make me glamorous & sophisticated as well as organized? If I meet all my deadlines, will you be my reward? (You might have to duke it out with that one pair of moss green J.Crew cords, though.)
