Stitching for Literacy Update

The Monday “What have you done lately?” accountability post, where I announce my Needle and Thread: Stitching for Literacy program promotion goal for the week and fess up on last week’s goal.

Eek! I’m a bit behind my time, to say the least. Pretend today is Monday, okay?

Last week my goal was to work on the 2009 outreach pattern. I did, but it’s not done, or, rather, I’m not satisfied. Simple is so hard for me! I tend to think “simple” is unnecessary and thus pointless, but I’m wrong about that. Knowing I’m wrong doesn’t simplify “simple” for me. Confound it! Give me convoluted!

The other goal was to revise the passive language in the flyer and make it readily available. There is a link to it on the What-Can-I-Do? page on this site and it’s in the Challenge Kit.

Check it out. Critique. Use at will.

Also this week, did you notice that Laura Kelly from The Handwork Studio left a comment? She’s probably got a Google Alert for her name and/or the Studio, so just setting the goal here served as an initial contact. That’s both cool and scary. It’s cool because look how connected we are, but it’s scary because I’m pretty casual here, and is that the kind of first-impression I want to make? It’s fine in this case, but is there a time when that wouldn’t be fine?

My goal for this week is to make the necessary arrangements to get brochures to the TNNA markets in San Diego and Nashville in January and February. I’m not attending either show, so will need ambassadors at both. Yoo-hoooo, Kat? Gayle? Monique? I’ll need to ship brochures, too.
