« Part 1250: Appreciating the Present Part 1251 of My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer series Part 1252: New Patterns Posted »

Today’s post will be quick like yesterday’s. I have been feverishly working on getting my new pattern packets ready for the site update (well – maybe not feverishly, but hard anyway!) I finished my little Easter egg tray pattern yesterday and it took most of the day to create the packet. It took longer than normal because not only did I have the painting instructions to do, but also the sewing instructions for the Roc-Lon fabric option. I couldn’t help thinking that perhaps Keith is right (you know how it pains me to say that!) and I do make extra work for myself! But hey – I still like doing things with several different options so I don’t see things changing anytime soon! It’s all fun!

We are almost ready for our site update though, and I am finishing up the patterns for both the layered woven basket and the “Marshmallow” bunny basket today. Everything should be up there by tonight and I will try to get a newsletter out by either later tonight or tomorrow.

Keith has some awesome new word art signs that he is adding to the site as well. They are pictured below:

I think they are awesome! They can be made as stand up pieces (on a base, as shown) or hung on a wall. We will be selling the patterns not only individually, but also as a set. I think they are really nice and I hope everyone likes them.

With that said, I had better get to it! If you want to receive our newsletter, please feel free to join our Mailing List. I send out about two newsletters per month and I don’t share your information with anyone. I often have people ask me when new patterns will be available and the newsletter is definitely the best way to see all the new things that both Keith and I create.

I hope you all have a great day today! Keith is heading for Bernie’s shop for the day and I am going to go over there and meet them for dinner with Keith’s mom and auntie. It should be a nice visit, and hopefully the patterns will be done by then! :)

Happy Thursday!

3 very wise words to live by. Super nice, the way you did them.

I love Keith’s word art work and I like that these patterns have a stand option. They will make very nice presents!
Enjoy the day. Sunny and mild here.

Thank you so much Anna! We also liked the ideas of standing these plaques up as an option. Hanging on a wall is such a commitment! ;) This way it is easier to switch things up.

We had a beautiful and sunny day here! Even I am getting ‘spring fever’!
