Sneak peek

Here's a sneak peek for you! It's a pale green and the 3rd green project I have been asked to do in a short amount of time. Kinda interesting. Makes me wonder if the Pantone color people have predicted green as the new "in" color for spring! We'll see, won't we?

As the year comes to a close, it's a good time for goal review for 2008 and generating new goals for 2009! Sharpen your pencils folks, it's also New Year's Resolution time!

Also, here's a funny little story... I love the library and I love crochet. So it makes sense that I want to see the library full of crochet materials. I noticed that our huge library system only subscribes to one of the crochet magazines, so I requested that they get a subscription to a second one (really, I want the library to carry them ALL). So the periodicals director (whatever his title is) writes me back and says that the "one magazine is sufficient for the topic". DUH! Oh my gosh! I'll be they subscribe to several home decor, several cooking, and gosh knows how many "women's magazines" but he thinks one crochet magazine is sufficient. I was speechless. How do I explain to the guy the nuances of the different magazines and why they are all worthy? All the magazines are really only a modest investment when you consider multiple issues in a subscription. I wonder how many knit magazines they have....I'll have to go searching. Anna? Are you there, do you know the answer to how many knit magazines our library subscribes to?

Check on quilting and scrapbooking mags too - my library has quite a few of those as well as a large number of knitting - crochet = 2!
Love the sneak peak - I am so bad at those crossing type stitches! Maybe I will try this one to conquer that skill. Love the light green too. Have a great day!

Well, at least your library subscribes to one crochet magazine! At this point in time, our library doesn't subscribe to any, and there is only 1 subscription to Interweave Crochet in our whole library system.

Short deadlines are nuts! Being a new designer, I haven't had too much work published, but the last two things I was asked to do had a deadline of just over or under a week. Talk about stress.
And I like the light green, it gives me some ideas for spring projects...
Happy Crocheting, Chelsea
