Here is a little peek at what I have been doing every single day this week. After about 4 years on the learning curve, drawing diagrams on Illustrator is something that I have become pretty good at, (modest aren’t I). In the past week I have drawn diagrams that visually explain many of the different techniques for needle turn applique; the stitch, outer points, inner points, clipping and “off-the-block” applique. What you see here is part of a series of 4 diagrams that illustrate how to install an invisible zip. Just drawing the actual zip took me several hours, but now I can use it over and over.More test prints arrived of the first 4 complete, shop-ready patterns. The 2 additional patterns I have finished writing up this week just need covers. It is all pretty exciting to me, but probably not to you, dear readers, as you have seen all this stuff before.
At least, once the patterns turn up in stores you can say, “I knew her when she just wrote this little blog and revealed her crazy peg-matching habits to the world”.
Are you super excited about anything that everyone else finds unremarkable?
