Two new patterns released today!

It's been a busy week. Two of my patterns have been released and, hopefully, on their way to a store near you. The first is my Firefly Dance pattern. It is a pattern that evokes praise and joy in all mother earth has to offer. If you have ever heard a song in a cricket's chirp or danced with the fireflies then this pattern is for you. The second pattern is my last Halloween pattern of the year. It is called Pumpkin Smarts and has very vivid colors.

Pumpkin Smarts

I wasn't planning on making another Halloween Pattern this year but it's really hard not to be in the spirit this time of year. The frame is hand made. I painted it with chalkboard paint and it looks great with my pattern. So, here is another sneak peak of an upcoming pattern. Yeah, you all are spoiled. LOL

Cooler Weather and Dedication

The weather has changed here in Utah. Of course that doesn't mean it will stay this way. This past week the high temps have been in the 60's-70's. A week ago...temps close to 100. Colder weather makes me tired. I'm not saying it's a bad thing. I love being wrapped in a warm blanket and snoozing. It's not very productive but sometimes being lazy is for the best.

I think I am 1/3 of the way done with my newest pattern. It's been a lot of work but worth it. I also think it will be well-liked by others. It's different, winter-themed and (dare I use the overused word?) WHIMSICAL! It's also very down to earth and hopefully will make you smile. The picture says to me "Dedication". No matter what you do and what you believe in always do it with your whole heart. If people tell you you're crazy just say "thanks".
