There Was Another Cat in the Bag!
When Alex and I began this blog over a year ago, we had no idea where the journey would take us. The plan was simple: create a place for us to chat about our crafty pursuits and hopefully entertain our readers. Since then we've made friends with people from across oceans, connected with those in our own community, tried our hands as exhibitors in a trunk show, and even seen that folks read our blog by google searching terms as random as "as seen on tv" and "eating". Ahhh, the internet is a weird and wonderful world.
I am pleased to tell you today that another opportunity has arisen for us Distractibles...one that fits us well...one from the world of the printed page.
Do you remember when we recently reviewed What Would Madame DeFarge Knit? Well, that book was apparently quite successful because almost immediately after it's release they announced that they were looking for submissions for a sequal. We decided to throw our hat in the ring and send in our idea for a pattern. Guess what? Mighty Distractible will have a knitting pattern and two essays included in the upcoming What Would Madame DeFarge Knit? Vol 2! Squeal! I think we actually held hands and jumped around in a circle when we got the acceptance email from Heather Ordover.
Obviously, mum's the word about the details of our pattern. I can tell you that the concept is right up our creepy alley! We will be so proud to share it with everyone. (I'm not sure when the book is scheduled for release, but I am guessing it will be in Q1 or 2 of next year.)
Happy Thanksgiving everyone...I think we all have a lot to be thankful for this year. :)
