It isn't often when I find myself ahead of schedule. Usually I am pushing hard to get everything done in the time frame that I have more so than not made for myself. I am pretty good at being disciplined and more or less keeping to that schedule, although I allow it to fluctuate a bit one way or another.
My "working weekend" must have paid off though because initially we weren't planning to do another website update until later this week. We found though that we had enough new patterns that we could move ahead and update things early. I must say – this could be a first!
I have three new patterns that are now available on the site. I showed them before as I was making the projects, but I will show them all here so everything is in one place. Keith also made some new sign patterns that can be purchased as a set as shown here, or individually. I'll start with his project.
Keith's SLDK555 Freedom, Remember and Sacrifice plaque pattern set is a beautiful way to honor and remember the veterans in our lives. We had such a strong response to the free Veteran's plaque (shown below) that he created additional options for our customers to choose from.
As for me, I posted patterns for my SLD495 Celtic Hearts Candle Tray
as well as my SLDP234 Celtic Hearts Painted Candle Tray or Mat pattern:
I really like how both of them came out, and I think that they give a nice option for both the painters as well as the scrollers who follow us.
And finally, I finished up the pattern for the little SLDP236 March Angel Bear Magnets, Ornaments or Pins pattern
I love how these little bears came out, and each month when I dress them differently, I fall in love with them all again. :)
We also changed the sales on our site. You can see that on our Pattern Specials page if you like.
And finally, we extended the free offer for the SLDK551 Veteran's Plaque Pattern until Sunday night.
We have had hundreds of veterans take us up on the offer for the free pattern and I love reading about each one's story and service.
That will be about all for today. If you are on our mailing list, you will be receiving your newsletter sometime today.
It is snowing out today. Not a surprise for February. After the newsletter is completed and sent, I think I may take the rest of the day 'off' to do some baking and maybe finish my embroidery panel.
It is going to be a wonderful day!
