If I kept my blog as up-to-date as I do my flickr page, I'd...be a different person. I'm a very visual person, so updating pictures is not difficult for me. And I take pictures pretty much every day, so I've always got the visual part covered. Writing, however doesn't come as easily to me. Add to that the heck and peck way I type and you've got the recipe for infrequent blog updates.
Be that as it may, here I am putting virtual pen to paper and sharing with you some exciting news. I've had to keep mum about this for several months, but now that the book's been published, I figure I can post about it.
I am very excited to have four of my designs included in Stefani Girard's Sweater Surgery. Like the title implies this book is all about crafting with recycled sweaters felted or otherwise.
My projects are scattered throughout the book.
I even have a two page spread in the gallery section.
Best of all though, my patchwork keyhole scarf is one of the projects featured in this book. It is kind of amazing to me how the editor condensed my lengthy instructions into 4 easy steps. But, they're really all you need to know to make the scarf. There are several other projects that caught my eye, but, considering that the summer heat has already started here in Austin, I probably won't be taking on any sweater projects right now.
