What a week it’s been, y’all! There’s so much goodness going on in The 70273 Project. Here are the highlights . . .
There’s a new way to support The 70273 Project: shopping on smile.amazon.com. You can read all about it here.
There’s a new page here on the blog of news in French for people who speak French. Of course there’s a translate button in the sidebar here, but I thought it might be nice to give them the important and basic information in their own language.
Several new links have been added to the Clarion page . . . which means people are writing blog posts about The 70273 Project . . . which gets the word out even faster. Thank you.
Kim Monins and Gisele Therezien, have enjoyed quite a full week in the Channel Islands, UK! They were interviewed on the BBC radio there, held a drop-in-and-stitch-a-block day, and there was a newspaper article about the stitch event and The 70273 Project. If you know of radio or tv stations, newspapers, or magazines where we might submit info about The 70273 Project, please let me know and let’s make a plan.
The 70273 Project was featured in an article in the Jersey Evening Post.
I learned a new, marketable (or not) skill: making memes. (I understand I still need to tweak the French version just a little.)
We started a new Adventure: The Men of The 70273, so ask the men in your life (any age) to make a block (or several) for The 70273 Project. Be sure to note that these are for The Men of The 70273 Adventure so I’ll hold them in a special place so they can wind up in their special quilts.
And there’s still time to collaborate with your siblings – that Adventure runs through the end of November.
Elves came to call this week when Betty Hedrick brought a friend to help me with The 70273 Project things. Like scanning, for example. And other things. Thank you, Betty and Friend!
I’ve now heard from people in 100 different countries! Isn’t that marvelous?
And wait. There’s more marvelous . . .
