The First Step

I just couldn't resist this street art photo found searching Google for "Good News" images. No, my news has absolutely NOTHING to do with fried dough, but I do have good news to share!
~*~
Remember my post about Craft Hope from the other day? Well, it seems that Jade Sims is teaming up with Lark Books to do a Craft Hope publication! The current plan is that 26 designers will each be paired up with 26 charitable organizations. Each designer will create and share a pattern or tutorial for an item that would be most useful in their designated shelter/organization/orphanage/program. The hope and mission of the book is that crafters by the hundreds of dozens will unite and create the items contained in the pages...and send them off to the places where they are so desperately needed.
~*~
My news? I have been chosen as one of the 26 designers to submit a project! My project has changed about 4 times in the last 2 days, but I *think* I have it nailed down for now. The next "deadline" is June 26th. On or before that date I must have a detailed project description and sketch /photo ready to submit to the Lark editors. This promises to be a long and exciting roller coaster ride- I sure hope you will join me for the adventure :)
