I will keep things short here today because I have writing to do. I know I promised that the reindeer and sleigh pattern would be ready today, and it may be later on, but I probably won't really have everything done, including the site update, until tomorrow (Thursday).
Sometimes things just take longer than expected.
I will say though that the pattern will really be a nice one. I spent the day yesterday working on the 26 step-by-step photos that I will include with it. That is where most of my day went. It isn't that it is that difficult to create and assemble the sleigh, but I want it to be very easy for woodworkers and scrollers of all levels. So I broke the process down into very small and easy steps.
But those things take time and hopefully they will be worth the wait for you all. I have had many, many messages and emails asking about the pattern, and that is why I thought it would be best to just answer you all here – so I can get to the task of completing the instructions and posting the pattern on the site.
Thank you all so much for your encouragement and interest. besides my sleigh and reindeer, Keith will also have some great new patterns ready for the update. And I am thinking a new sale page is in order, so if you were contemplating purchasing any of the items we have on sale now, please do so while their prices are still reduced. :)
With that said, it is off to write.
I wish you all a wonderful day!
