(Sheepishly) Sorry. I'm still alive. And well. Just very busy. Thanks for checking up on me, though.
I know you're used to me being here at least a few times a week and usually more. Believe me, I'd be saying hello every day if I could. But the reality of having a pattern business has finally hit me.
First, I'm getting ready for Quilt Market next week. Along with a book signing (still haven't been shopping for a nice new outfit), my publisher - C&T Publishing - has kindly asked me to do an embroidery demo in their booth. So I'm prepping for that.
But most of my time has been spent coming up with new patterns for you. So even though I've been sewing and stitching like a madwoman here, I can't really show you much. Most of my patterns are still in the "prototype" stage ... close, but not good enough. Or I still have testing and stuff to do. I hope I will find some yummy new fabric at Quilt Market to translate my ideas into fresh designs.
But speaking of yummy new fabric, I found this at a local quilt shop last week.
It's a cotton linen blend. (I think.) Definitly linen-esque. By Yuwa.
I have no idea what I'm going to make with it.
But since when is logic and reason necessary when deciding on a fabric purchase?
Uh, like never. ;)
Have a great weekend.
