Sooooo, I’ve been a really really really bad blogger lately, but I promise it’s for the greater good! I’m working nonstop on getting the Morris Blazer pattern and a pattern for the duffle/dopp/pouch travel kit I’ve been posting on Instagram ready to launch. Should be soon on those but unfortunately that’s left me little time for posting here. I’m going to work my little ass off this weekend (again) and try to put a nail in the coffin on at least one of these patterns so that I can get moving on new exciting things! Always so much to do, times like these I wish I could clone myself or something like that. Man that would be nice! Anyway, these photos are a bit of what I’ve been up to lately. I’ve been knitting socks like mad because they’re a great mindless break from sitting and staring at a computer screen. I posted this on Facebook the other day (my personal account) and I think it’s so true and has been backed up by a multitude of my other creative self employed friends.

Warning: If you decide to make things for a living so you don’t stare at a computer all day, you will end up staring at a computer all day anyway. You will also discover just how many floaters you have in your eyes and it WILL freak you out.

Just a little tidbit in case you were wondering about these things, haha. Have a good weekend dudes!

    I’ve some special fabric set aside for sewing a weekend bag set, but until now have been unable to find a pattern that matches the idea in my head. Yours looks perfect, can’t wait!

    The blazer looks wonderful. (I just cut out my 8th archer yesterday) I can’t wait for the blazer pattern. Not sure I’d need 8 but I do need a few blazers in my wardrobe. I want it!
    A friend of mine has an antique sock machine. She cranks out wool socks like nobodies business. I am addicted to wool socks come winter.
    Your sock looks beautiful.

    Those floaters, they get to you don’t they 🙂 Shudder…
    Love your blog by the way, I find your post very inspiring and helpful in my mindless sewing attempts 🙂

    I’m stacking up Archers and am excited about the Morris Blazer. Your patterns are so darn wearable! I live in my Minnetonka moccasins and now am tempted by a moccasin bootie too 😉

    I’m so excited about your two next patterns!! So happy also that you have decided to make the pattern for the duffle bag 🙂 But don’t work too hard… we can wait 🙂

    I can’t WAIT for these new patterns– so exciting! I’ve seriously been hoarding some special fabric for a year or so now in the hopes that you’d release the blazer pattern. 🙂

    ALSO. Beag! I love her sweet face… such a cute little girl!

    Hello, Love the patterns. How do I get the fabulous Morris Blazer pattern.
    I also have Bernina sewing machines and a serger. I used to sell Bernina’s at a store in Vermont.
    Nothing sews like a Bernina!
