As each day passes things occur to me and I often think, "I should mention this in my next post". But then I forget and am on to something else. While others have posts filled with wonderful photos of their works in progress my life has been filled with a constant barrage of computer work. What on earth am I doing? A little of this and a little of that with a load of laundry in between. I am happy to say that I have almost all instructions completed, or almost completed, for new patterns. Plus the covers are printed. This is a huge relief!
Here are the three new pattern covers. So glad to have them ready for market and also for anyone who wishes to order them. They will be on my website soon! patchalotpatterns.com
Button Bandits will be available soon also. Didn't the cover turn out cute? I took it on the floor of the deck. I have magnets coming also, so if you order this pattern it will come with a magnet of the same picture. I try to remember to include a magnet in each online order that shows one of my patterns, tho I haven't ordered them for all patterns. They are so cute on the fridge or where ever!
Oh, and I had to raise my prices a bit, but I eliminated the shipping fee, so it comes out about the same. Ordering is very secure as it goes through Paypal, and even if you don't have a Paypal account you can click on to order and Paypal will process your credit card. It is all out of my hands. Awesome! Am I too old to use that term? I will go back to saying "cool"!
I seem to focus a lot on aging. I guess it is because that is all my husband talks about. He says things like, "when I am gone you will have to learn to manage the money". The other night I said to him, "Just so you know, I am not in a hurry for you to be gone". He said, "I know, you just want me in the other room". I have to keep him around because he makes me laugh! Laughter has preserved our marriage for almost 45 years! See? I told you I was old. Not like I really care. Except for...
Remember that voice issue that I mentioned a while ago? Well I saw a new doctor (one that would put Dr. Dreamy on Grey's Anatomy out of the running!) and he is recommending surgery. So come November I will be having surgery to put a wedge in my throat to force my vocal fold into place to correct my speech. More on that as the date approaches, but meanwhile I have purchased a voice amplifier to use at market in an effort to be heard above my normal whisper. Here's hoping that will do it for the short term.
Feel free to visit me on Pinterest. I have so many quilt photos on my boards it will make your head spin, and with Halloween coming up maybe you were hoping to learn that trick. I try to be helpful where I can.
Later quilt buddies!
