Jeanne has been focused lately on a new pattern. We aren't quite ready yet to reveal what it is all about but I had to write something about it-or, at least, what is inspiring it. I'm sure you've all been seeing the growing trend in the news to report on everyone's "Green" efforts. With Earth Day not too many weeks past, the interest in saving the world hasn't let up a bit.
We've been talking over coffee more about "re-purposing" than recycling. Not that we both don't recycle-there is a stack of cardboard boxes in my driveway today ready for the garbage men. But "re-purposing" has to be more fun and more fun means we'll look for more opportunities to stay engaged. We did a bit of "re-purposing" with our Pincushion Treats pattern. You might remember that the base of the pincushion is the re-purposed lid from a cream cheese container. It's just the perfect size!
Look around you and be on the alert for how you "re-purpose" things in your daily life. We'd love to hear what you're doing as we work though our new pattern. The only hint I'll give you is that the new pattern is for something you wear!
