I’m sorry that my postings have been sporadic as of late. It wasn’t my plan to not write about my creations for three weeks, time just got away from me. I wish I could say it was because our family was off on vacation at a tropical beach soaking up the sun and melting away the stress, but no…..it’s just been hard learning to balance new responsibilities and having school out.
I have been working on a number of creations that I have given out to friends and family to “test” for me. It’s been fun and sometimes frustrating since I’ve been working on some new crochet patterns AND I’m learning to sew! The patterns have been beginner level works that come together fairly quickly. The frustration is working a pattern and realizing I have sewn the pieces together wrong…….it has happened more often than I would like to admit.
On the plus side, I have taken some time out to work on the technology side of running a blog and web-based business. Even with pre-designed templates and the help of Hubs, who knows soooo much more about computers than I do, it was a challenge. I’m still working on a number of listings to add to the store page, more photos and descriptions; but it is coming along nicely. I don’t know if I would go as far as saying “Grand Opening!”, but I like the general direction it’s going and I’m looking forward to adding those important touches that set Knot Your Way apart from other fiber artist creations.
I currently have three items listed. It’s just the beginning though…..so many more are coming. A few more crochet items will be listed as well as a whole lot of sewn items when I am confident in my skills. I even have plans to write my own patterns!!
If you would like to check out the store while it’s still under construction, please stop by! I would love your feedback on the way things are looking and any products you would like to see featured. Don’t forget to bookmark my store page so you can find me again easily!
Next week I will be blogging about some of the sewing patterns I have been working on and links where you can find the patterns to make for yourself. In the meantime, here is a sneak peek of some of my new creations…..
These contoured burpies are a feature item in a Baby Couture line for KYW. I’ve just started the work on this line and I can’t wait to tell you all about it.
Talk about useful……..how have I lived all these years with earphones and no case???? Well, problem solved with this adorable zipper pouch pattern that is made to fit on your key ring!!!!! I’ll be sharing this free pattern soon too!
This is the beginning of a sewing machine cover….I came up with the design myself and it’s so functional and easy to take on and off. It’s prettier too than the original cover that came with my machine. I’ll tell you how I put it all together in an upcoming post.
Stick around! I’m so excited to share these projects and a few more I’ve completed over the last few weeks. Don’t forget to follow me on Facebook and Pinterest and subscribe to my blogs for all the latest patterns, creations, and useful tips.
