Hello lovelies, it’s the 1st of November and I am, as ever, stunned at how fast the year is flying by. I thought I’d pop in and let you know where I’m at right now.
I’m almost finished the pattern for the gnome quilt. I was hoping it get it listed this weekend but it depends on photos (and it’s raining). I’ll let you know as soon as I’m done.
I’ve spent most of this year working with Terri, an editor, who is helping me upgrade the patterns with the view to eventually securing an American distributor. Just when we thought we were finished, the black background (PDF) printing issue cropped up and we were sent back to square one.
Thankfully we’ve figured out the best way to overcome the problem in the majority of cases but it’s very time consuming. I want this finished before the end of the year so I can dedicate my time to actual designing, sewing, and pattern writing again. A huge thank you to the lovely people helping me out with test printing. xx
This month we will finish our ‘This Little Piggy’ block of the month quilt. I hope you’ve enjoyed sewing along with us. We will be running another free BOM next year and we’ll release details early in 2020.
I’m hoping to release a couple of Christmas patterns in the next couple of weeks, but no promises at this stage. Anyway it’s heading for midnight, it’s raining a little, and I need my anti-wrinkle sleep (ha ha ha). Have a fabulous weekend, toni xx
