So many things, so little time……

Just wanted to check in and let you know that I’m here.  I am super-busy right now trying to get my next three patterns published by next month.  So, I will apologize in advance for my lack of blogging over the next couple weeks.  I was really excited by your response to my handmade business series, so I definitely have some posts on those topics coming soon.  But for right now, I have to make sure I focus on getting down to business, so I need to pull myself away from the computer and hit the sewing machine.

We have a photoshoot scheduled for next week for all the pattern covers and I am so excited that we will be using several fans from our The Cottage Mama Facebook page for the ‘boy’ pattern that will be released!  We will photograph my little guy, Caspian Finn, as well, but he isn’t standing yet so we have some adorable little guys that will be modeling for us.

I am sewing up a storm trying to make sure we have all the variations of each pattern constructed and making sure the sizing is all correct.  There are three variations in each pattern, so that is at least nine garments, with a few more for good measure.  My head is swirling with ideas, fabric combinations and lots of pretty trim.  I literally just starred at my fabric for 20 minutes yesterday not being able to put a fabric combination together to save my life…….I guess I’ll call it sewers block.  But today is a new day and inspiration has been found! 

Can’t wait to share the finished products with you all ~ Have a great day!
