Stitching for Literacy Update

A bookmark by Marion Scoular. I have two of these, and I am sorely tempted to keep one. But now that I’ve said it out loud, I won’t. I promise to pass them both on to deserving young readers.

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.

Last week, my goal was to make yet another stitchy video. Wonder of wonders–I did! Mike helped, editing 462 images for me, with 20 clicks, a few scrolls, and some numbers typed for each. It’s all put together, finished, in the can, converted to a .wmv file, ready to upload. I’m surprised and excited!

I sent the video tutorial and pdf pattern to Melissa for the readergirlz. Girlz have another week to order a kit (send your name and mailing address to readergirlz [AT] gmail [dot] come), and I’ll be available to answer questions via the readergirlz blog or email. (My email address is in the sidebar, you know!)

All that’s left is writing a press release, getting things updated around here, and then stitching and enjoying the Challenge. I’m so excited to see and hear about the bookmarks being stitched and submitted. I hope to get in touch with some of the teachers and librarians who put the bookmarks to use so that we can all see some of the effects of our efforts.

And those are my goals for this week and for the duration of the Challenge. This is the last Update post until after the Challenge.

What do you think? Did we make some progress as a result of weekly goals?
