bakers dozen

I'm so excited and proud to announce a project that Fieldguided is participating in: Bakers Dozen. This project was created by Amy Borrell and I was so happy when she invited us to take part. It's pretty amazing to see "Fieldguided" next to some of these names! I didn't know who was going to be involved in the first go-round and it was so fun to look through and see who else was there. Also fun was seeing the countries that are represented: Germany, Sweden, Finland, Spain, Australia, the UK, etc.

I love the pictures she took of our contribution.


I embroidered some text from an interview with Joanna Newsom in the Believer in 2004 -- I remember reading it on the subway and it's never left me. It's such an off-the-cuff, pure statement, the kind of thing she probably said in surprise in response to an unusual, unexpected question. I liked the idea of meditating on such a statement by embroidering it over and over.

Please do check out the site -- Amy worked so hard on it and it's quite beautiful. Also note that prices are in Australian dollars! I want to buy one of everything else.

YAY!
