I feel like a real schmuck for only posting once or twice a week for the past month, but I've been burning the midnight oil trying to get some more patterns and tutorials together for you all. It's downright crazy how long it takes to write patterns & tutes...I wish I could just download this stuff directly from my brain into a computer. If only this were the Matrix....*sigh* On top of that, I haven't been getting much sleep because my impertinent pup has now trained himself to bark along with my alarm clock, so hitting the snooze button is no longer a luxury I look forward to. It just means 5 minutes of prolonged barking before I can get him to settle down, and by that time I'm 1) wide awake and 2) the snooze alarm is about ready to go off again. It's a vicious cycle of alarms, barking, shushing, and sleep deprivation.
Tomorrow I'm gonna post my first ever pattern in my Etsy shop for the Grab 'n' Go wristlet I designed, and thanks to a suggestion from Kelly, it's gonna include an alternate pattern for a smaller coin purse - woo hoo! And guess what? I'm also gonna be posting a pretty massive giveaway, including a Go! Baby, some fabric, and two handmade items from yours truly ;) It's been a while since I've had a proper giveaway, plus I want to thank you all for sticking around while I've been on a quasi-blogging sabbatical.
I'm also gonna be posting another free tutorial on how to make a quilted hexie coin purse during Kristie's Bag Lady Week. Are you all familiar with Kristie @ OCD? If not, you should be. She's hilarious. And talented. And quite possibly my favorite Canadian (next to Ryan Reynolds, that is).
