I told myself I wouldn't post again until I had that chair finished. Which explains the absence over the last week. And look-no pictures of a finished chair! It is under construction and looking rather well, maybe it will be completed by next post. But I missed you guys and needed to chat a bit. I've been super busy with getting a website together and pulling together enough projects that you haven't seen yet to make it new and fun. Patterns are also being pulled together at a rate that feels like a slug sprayed with salt, but usually slow is better. We're really going for something that hasn't been done yet, both in design and construction of the pattern. Hopefully the instruction format I'm going for will make it easier for both new sewers and experienced seamstresses to fly through it. (Because while slow is good for creating a product, it's not quite as fun if it takes 8 hours to decipher it.)
So enjoy a little bit of sweetness, a sampling of things to come. You've seen them before, but this one is all done up in Ginger Blossomy goodness.
The next few posts will bring that finished chair, a sprinkling of new free tutorials and patterns and this little piggy trinket I've been dying to share..
(Update) OOPS! I forgot, here are a few more sites that have let me know they are offering Ginger Blossom for pre-order!
Also, I have been receiving many emails from designers who have heard rumor of an ebay launch being organized for Ginger Blossom. There is a launch in the works, but I have asked to not be part of the inviting. Since I hail from the ebay boutique world, I have many many friends and didn't want to leave anyone out. If you are interested in joining, I'm actually not the person to contact. Go request an invite on the group board home page and your request will be put to the group. There is already a large number of designers gathered for this, so if you would like in, I would suggest hurrying! If you have emailed me regarding this in the last few days and I have failed to answer your email, I apologize-it was not intentional, my time is flying away from me these days.
