To those of you who 'fessed up that you're late-tax-doers - my heartfelt thank you.
To the rest of you... ttthhhhhbbbbppppttttttt.
Monday! The Rosie Store will go "live" on Monday. The link is there -- to the left of this -- but it links to an empty page. It's all there, it 's just "hidden" until I make sure I haven't forgotten anything. I'm sure I have but here's the thing, I'm going to be adding patterns and "other things" in the coming months anyway, so if I have forgotten something, who is going to know but me?
What's coming? The first batch of patterns will include the most recent eighteen (18) Schnibbles patterns. As new patterns are published, they'll be published as paper patterns and PDFs at the same time - the Schnibbles and anything else.
Like Dimestore. This is a new Schnibble. I'm working on the binding. Have you tried these Clover binding clips? A friend gave me a big box (50 clips) and so far, I like them. I'm not sure what I'm going to do with the 19,487 other clips I've got... but I'll figure that out later.
I'll also do a "Scarlett O'Hara" when it comes to deciding which big quilts to turn into PDFs.
But this one is definitely on the list, it's a new quilt for Spring Market...
This is Bounce. This quilt will come with a couple of options... which might explain why the pattern cover will have two versions of it. My favorite thing about it is this -- 1 Layer Cake and about 4 yards of background fabric makes a 74" x 74" quilt... or something like that. And, yes, I love, love, LOVE this Hope Valley fabric. (Oh my, have you seen the preview for Chicopee? SewMamaSew.)
A sweet friend pieced this one for me... and when Market week comes around, I'm going to let her tell you all about it. This is just a little peek. The gorgeous quilting is by Linda Hrcka of The Quilted Pineapple. (Pssst... Cupcake. You're going to love it.)
If there is a pattern you think I need to have on "my PDF. list", let me know what it is. You know I like making lists.
My list this weekend -- bindings and a lab experiment.
You'll have to wait until October to hear about the latter.
Until then, Rosie and I hope you have a tax-free weekend!
P.S. 'Fess up... how many of you, when doing your taxes, did a double-take when you totaled up how much you'd spent on fabric and quilting stuff in a year? Or am I the only one who actually has to add it all up for the tax-man? If you don't have to do that, be happy... be very, very happy.
