I'd like to make this blog nice, and post on it more often. I just don't seem to find the time. I know it's there, I've just misplaced it somehow...
I thought I'd at least give a little update on what's going on with the shop. The Etsy shop is doing well, lots of custom orders. I've collaborated with a fellow snarky gal and now make patterns for her shop, HitchedStitcher, and I'm making a pattern for Wend's Hell Devils shop, too. I'm also giving away 100 copies of the new "Regretsy(TM) made me do it" pattern to all the FJLs at the L.A. meetup next week. Hopefully this will help me continue to make sales through these slowest months of the year.
At Contempo Artisan Boutique, Staci has readied the upstairs of the shop for classes and supplies. I'll be selling cross stitch kits there, and teaching a series of handsewing classes. First one is February 2. I'm looking forward to doing this, as it will help me further share my love of needle and thread.
In designing for myself/the shop, I'm working on finishing a series of eyeglasses that I'm really happy with. I'm also stitching on more wooden boxes and vintage artwork. I'll post pictures when I have them framed.
