My plans were to come back from Spring Market & start writing the patterns for my new designs. . . .
Well, . . . that was the plan.
But between the icky 'bug' that I caught in Minneapolis that decided to hang around for a couple of weeks. . . & the amounts of cold/flu medications that I've had in my system. . . & the fact that all I could manage to do was sleep, nap, snooze, & sleep some more. . . the reality hit me that pattern writing wasn't going to happen.
I actually tried a couple of times. . . & it was a sad sight. I sat there - in bed with my laptop & my notebook where I write out all my directions, notes & sketches, & my tissue box, & I would have no idea how to start! I knew then & there that I was not to be trusted to try & explain how to put together a-n-y-t-h-i-n-g(!). So, the notebook went on the side table until I was able to get through the day without needing to nap every half-hour.
So now. . . I am finally in full pattern writing mode (yippee!) I finished & proofed & reproofed one yesterday & now it will go out for a final proofing. Today I'm starting the pattern for the designs above. It shouldn't be too difficult, as I already wrote out the directions - in detail as I made them - so mainly it will mostly be working on cleaning up the graphics for the templates & diagrams for the applique & the embroidery. I'm actually really excited to work on this pattern - 'cause I had such fun making the projects.
The goal is to get the last of the new designs/patterns to the printer by mid- week next week. . .
So. . . if I'm a little bit quiet for the next week or so. . . you'll know why !
