|Tech edits on Trains|
This has been the week of finishing, and I mean that in more than one way.
It's been the week of finishing the last tasks for my new website: set to launch next Wednesday, right before TNNA. I've been getting the Cultivar team the last of the copy, figuring out where testimonials will go, sorting through pictures, and making sure all the i's are dotted and the t's crossed (which, by the way, has become a saying that makes no sense to my brother, who grew-up in the land of typing but no cursive).
It's been the week of wrapping up finishing and repair projects too: a pair of mittens with the thumbs worn out, a black sweater that needed the seams redone, a sweater & bootie combo that were adorable and needed to be seamed and blocked. I wanted to get them all off, as my guest bedroom is being taken over by finishing projects. Now, I just have three afghans in need of repair - which will be fun, as they are all quite of a size. And then there's one small and delicate christmas stocking, which is more holes than solid fabric, but much loved.
I've been finishing up tidying the house: there's so many things that aren't in their proper places. Yarn's everywhere the cat's can't get to. I've got "body parts" everywhere: my father gave me a whole bunch of display pieces and they were immediately conscripted into work.
I've finished with 14 patterns since the beginning of the year - that's just about the same number of patterns I published last year, total. We're wrapping up on tech edits now on most of the patterns... thank goodness! I've got the pleasure of working with some amazing minds to make patterns the best they can be, but it's still hard bopping between one pattern and the next to make sure everything is as perfect as it can be.
After TNNA (next weekend, and I'm so excited!) I'll be gearing up for the summer season: which means getting ready for the camps and for the fall. If you have or know a kid in the DC area looking for some really great craft based camps, you should check out the listing of camps here.
