And Now Back to Our Regularly Scheduled Crafting...

Did you miss me?  Go ahead and admit it.  You know you did.  Sorry to disappear like that, but the Bombshells took a well deserved hiatus.  We were starting to get carpal tunnel from all our crafting and we craved a summer vacation.  But you can only hold court poolside for so long.  After awhile, the tropical drinks and ogling the cabana boy lose their charm.  We’re ready to be more constructive with our time again.  You know what that means?  Let’s get knitting. 

We decided it was time to reconvene and have a yarn summit/cocktail hour.  Pinky Shears sounded the alarm and drew the Bombshells from near and far.  We shared stories of adventures and exotic locations.  We shared a drink or two (or three, but who’s counting).  Our break allowed us to refocus our creativity and our energy.  We drew diagrams, thought big, and examined all things Bombshell.  I think we truly outdid ourselves.  So many great ideas.  So many exciting projects.  It’s going to be a big year for the Bombshells indeed.   

I’d be remiss if I didn’t divulge a couple teeny tiny secrets.  Our crafty itinerary for this fall includes an appearance at the Ohio Art Education Association.  We’re one of the key note speakers at this year’s convention!  That’s right.  The Bombshells now have some scholarly validation for our fiber art. We’re also welcoming a new member or two into the fold.  They’ve been thoroughly vetted, sworn to secrecy, and they’ve taken the blood oath.  I mean, demonstrated their yarn skills and keen fashion sense.  It’s serious business becoming a Bombshell.

But this Kitty can’t let the cat out of the bag on any of the other surprises.  So stay tuned and be ready.  You never know what we’ll do next and you might even see a new face or two in the blonde crowd.

Until then…

Hugs and Stitches,
