Look what came in the mail yesterday! I’ve been waiting as patiently as possible for these to arrive from Fancyweaver in Hong Kong. They did such a beautiful job with them. I’ll have some of these listed in my store later today in case you want to grab some to sew onto the things that you’ve sewn from Fishsticks Designs clothing. I’ll also be including one tag with every pattern ordered as a “Thank you” between now and Christmas. And, I just might be sewing one of them onto everything in my house that doesn’t run away when I approach it with a straight pin . . .
I am sewing, and I’ll have some things to show off soon. I’m working on one top secret little sewing project that’s due in to an editor (gasp!) in a few weeks, but I won’t be able to reveal what it is for a few months. I’ve got two new patterns that I’m hoping to have finished up by the end of October: The Charlie Tee in teen/adult sizes and The Inside or Out Pocket Pants. I’ll have previews of those up soon. I’m also sewing a few things to stock as a guest at The Apple Orchard for October. I won’t have as many things as I’d originally hoped, though, because things are a bit busier here than I expected when I first signed up. Along with those first three projects, I have a GFA project that I’m helping out with, and, in case you haven’t heard, my oldest daughter is getting married in December! It’s funny that as much as I love sewing and know that I need to get things done, I can’t stop myself from constant wedding planning. Oh, and in case that wasn’t enough, we’ll be traveling to Florida for three weeks in November to visit our ministry supporters and to spend Thanksgiving with my family.
Wow! I need to quit blogging and get moving!
