Just a quick update with two sources of inspiration. The first comes from a snippet I saw in Deborah Robson's blog. Check out this picture. Apparently Latvia is giving 4,500 pairs of these mittens, each handknit and each different, to every single NATO Summit visitor next month. Is that not the most incredible thing you've ever seen?!
And second, a snippet from Kristin Nicholas's blog. She and I share a deep respect for Julia Child. While I have my Julia Child rose in the front yard, she has a Julia Child cornmaze growing about 25 minutes from her farm in Western Massachusetts. I'd like to think Julia would've gotten a great laugh, and delight, from this one.
