This is the Way Every Work Day Should Be

We are leaving shortly for a weekend of shows (details below) but before I leave, I just wanted to share this with you.  This week, we packed up the September Yarn Alliance parcels on what had to be one of the most beautiful days of the year.  The temperature was so mild and the breeze was deliciously fresh so, instead of hiding away inside, we set everything up on the porch.

First, we built a wall of boxes at one end.

Then, we began filling them with delicious SpaceCadet Yarn Alliance yarn.  This colourway is a real eye-popper — I can’t wait to hear what the members think! (The image, of course, is black and white — can’t give away the surprise)

And working there on the porch, in the dappled light and cool shade of the trees, it had to be one of the most pleasant work environments I’ve ever experienced.  Oh, for every day to be like that day!

Dying to know what that colourway will look like?  Only the club members will find out!  But the InterStellar Yarn Alliance is open for subscriptions right now, from Sept 1 to 16.  It’s a fabulous club with gorgeous yarns and lovely little gifts.  We’d love to have you aboard!

3.. 2… 1… Launch the SpaceCadet’s InterStellar Yarn Alliance!

I have been looking forward to writing this post for weeks — no, months.  This started as a little kernel of an idea just before Christmas and I have spent the last few months coming up with ideas, making plans…  and getting just so excited!

So, I am very very pleased that this day as come at last.  Because today is the day that we launch…
