Yup. You heard me right. It's madness and mayhem here. And the truth is, I'm loving it. I must thrive on chaos, as my mom as always said she does ... because I'm a complete and very happy crazy cake right now.
I'm working on this little piece as a new PDF pattern, and I hope to have it done by time I return from Sisters (see sidebar... I'm teaching there next week). Ironically, this is a "Sisters" embroidery. I've been trying to come up with a good sisters saying, and since "blood is thicker than water" is out, I'll happily take suggestions. Do you have any? My Sister, My Friend maybe?
Also adding the the crazy cake mood is the fact that I've been getting the We Love French Knots website up and running with tutorials and videos plus special interviews and projects. It's even more fun than I thought it would be. Last night I posted the first video which I hope you'll go check out.
Happily, the Beachside Holiday quilt pattern is almost done. Sadly, the actual quilt is not almost done and I'm thinking of calling in reinforcements to complete it.
In other news, I received my Frixion Pen order for the embroidery supplies section of my website. I love these pens and use them for all of my embroidery. They are heat erasable with your iron. The marks come back in freezing temps, but easily disappear again with a quick puff of the iron. I'm offering a free pen right now when you order a full set of Cosmo floss (9color pack) plus a hoop, if you are interested.
Also, if you've been looking for Paris Apartment, it's starting to arrive in stores! I know for sure Hip Fabric has it and Fat Quarter Shop should have it shortly along with Hawthorne Threads and Sew Mama Sew. Also, my free pattern, Jolie Maison, is on the Lecien website.
Crazy cakes? It's all good.
