And, the Oliver+S new patterns have arrived!
Aren't they so sweet?!
Now, to my idea.....I feel that I'm in a bit of a blog rut. Not as consistent as I want to be.....I feel a bit un-creative in relaying Hip Stitch happenings. I feel a wee bit like Julie Powell in Julie & Julia - remember her? She wanted to write, but it took forcing herself to take such extreme measures as cooking a Julia Child recipe every single day for one year. Well, I'm not going to those extremes, though I did just take out of the oven 3 loaves of bread from by beloved bread book, "Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day." (you haven't run out and bought this book yet?! shame!) But I digress.
I'm going to get a bit drastic in my quest to liven up the blog. I'm going to venture out weekly and visit a crafter's studio space. And take pictures. And interview her a bit (there may be a 'him' along the way - who knows?!) And maybe some weeks will be more full than others with life, and it'll be more challenging to do my job - but I'm going to give it my all. Won't you join me in this journey?! I may be calling or emailing YOU to request a visit to your space - I hope you'll accommodate me.
(Now, keep in mind, when I say studio space, I don't mean necessarily an entire room devoted to sewing. It could be like mine right now - a $5 yard sale desk in the corner of my dining room.)
