Glad to hear the pattern booklets are landing safely and I can’t wait to see your creations. More booklets have been reordered…and more thank you cards and more mailers. whew! The business of business, there’s a lot of it huh. Tim is very excited that people actually like these things and is eager to get going on the next set of patterns. I’m working on it dear. I’ve successfully recreated the butterfly and now the turtle.
The the biggest challenge for me in all of this is trying to balance going back and making patterns and tutorials of previous work with the desire to keep moving forward. I’m itching to get started on some new projects and designs. I have a set of twins to make stuffed animals for and I have been trying to come up with something new for them. And for the embroidery I have big plans, overambitious maybe a kid’s book type of plans. At the very least I hope to get a few embroideries together for a little set of notecards soon. Then there were those fabric designs and oh yeah, poor neglected thriftcraft. And bunnies! I’m working on a big batch of big footed bunnies to add to the store. And again there with the overambitious. Are there enough hours in the day to learn how to smock?
On the other side of the to-do coin are the patternbooks. I’m hoping to get two more sets done by Fall. The hand sewing set with turtle, snail and butterfly (and maybe a new design) and the robots and space toys which will be a much bigger book than no. 1 with more patterns and variations. And then, phew, that’s it. That’s as far into the future I can think!
