Old Spools, New Zen, More Stitching

I used these vintage thread spools in a photo shoot on my front porch today. The spools weren’t the subject of the shoot just crafty filler, but I did spend a few minutes arranging them just so for a few photos. I have several deadlines to meet this week, so the pressure is full on. But these pretty little spools got me to slow down and shoot a few frames just for me. I’m saving the best photo for a new CraftSanity project that I have brewing. I’ll share more about that later.

In other news, I’m heading to the Seattle soon for the Conference  of Creative Entrepreneurs slated for Aug. 13-15. If you’re interested in heading West (well at least it’s West from my house), be sure to take advantage of a this “25discount” code for $25 off your conference ticket purchase. I’m speaking about podcasting on Aug. 13 and then recording a “live” CraftSanity episode on Saturday and need some crafty support to make the live show a success, so please come if you can.

I’m also continuing to recruit awesome people to help me finish my ArtPrize quilt and so grateful every time a new person jumps in the trenches with me to help stitch. Frankly, that’s the best part of the project – stitching with people from all walks of life. I really love that. And many of the people who have volunteered their time are stitching multiple blooms which is so wonderful. THANK YOU!

I’ll be working on the project again tomorrow (July 28) during Craft Club from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the David D. Hunting YMCA in Grand Rapids and you’re invited to come and stitch. Just send me an e-mail if you’re planning to come and I’ll prepare a kit for you. See you there!

Okay, I better get to it. There are a few more tasks to check off tonight’s list including a refashioned Elmo T-shirt dress for my daughters to share.
