Hearing vs. Listening

I like to say that I love feedback. I love to hear when someone falls in love with a project bag I’ve made. Or when they tell me my Craftsy class improved their photography. Or that they are complimented on something they knit from one of my patterns. I LOVE that kind of feedback. Who doesn’t? We all like to hear the nice things. So when I say I love feedback, what I really mean is I love to hear the nice things. The not-so-nice things aren’t as lovable. I still appreciate negative feedback, but it takes me a few days to come around to it.

Photoshoot Friday, Springtime in the Winter edition

In November I had the privilege of shooting the pattern photos for Louet’s Spring 2014 collection. Mari of Stitchcraft Marketing flew up from North Carolina and acted as stylist and photo assistant. It was a particularly tricky shoot to wrangle around the weather and backgrounds. It was November in Boston but most of the trees were bare of leaves so we could pretend it was early early spring before the trees were budding. (At least I hope that’s how it looks.)
