Now before anyone thinks all I do is sit around cranking out patterns, this one has been in the “almost done” phase for quite a while. It feels like all I’ve done for the last week is finalize this pattern (which involved a lot of sewing (fun!) and some trips to Home Depot (also fun!)) and looking up copyright stuff (not so much fun).
Hey, is anyone going to tell her that the picture is sideways?
Okay, okay, that’s my attempt at being artistic. I clearly need to learn some pattern cover-making skills. Is there a class for that? For those of you who might get hurt tilting your head, here’s a right-side-up shot:
Oh Lotus fabric, how beautiful I find thee.
HUGE thanks to Katie who whipped up not 1, but 2 patchfolios in one week, to test sew this pattern for me. She is the reason this patchfolio is as sturdy as it is. Thanks, Katie!
These girls are some models that didn’t make the cut for the cover shot. But they were such good sports about it. Not a complaint (“Awww! Why can’t I be on the cover?”) out of either of them, which is such a nice thing for this Mama.
Patterns are, of course, in my shop.
Thanks to everyone who’s been asking how I’m doing! You gals are so nice! I’m almost 4 weeks post surgery and doing a lot better. My body is craving exercise, but I hurt when anything in my tummy area does anything remotely similar to jiggling so for now I walk slowly, avoid walking down stairs, and dream of when I can get up early and walk with my walking buddy Yvonne.
