Ah, so much for all my good, be dependable, blogging aspirations. I'm having a terrible time staying on track with the blogging and the pattern making. I am very much hoping to have a pattern out for the bush hat for children's sizes (adults will have to wait a bit) by the end of the week. I've been playing and testing in the evenings after the kidlets go to bed. Or that is the intention at least, until Birdie Boy decided to catch a bit of a tummy bug. I won't gross you out with the details.
But still, just can't keep a good pattern down. Here is my favorite test hat (and my favorite model).While I've got you here, reading my sad excuses for blog neglect, I should also mention that the infrequency of the posting will continue for awhile. In about 2 or 3 weeks my little family and I will be moving our worldly possessions - after selling or donating 90% of the bulk - into a hovel on wheels and beginning an extended scouting mission in the next province over to see if we can hear a place calling to us. I expect our motorcoach living to be four weeks minimum. It shall be an experiment in finding joy. And patience. And laundrymats.
I shall also be taking some fabric, needles, and thread, along with the laptop and my notebook of ideas. The inspirations never care that I'm busy doing other things and I'm sure I can find an internet connection here and there and have a chance to say 'hi!' to y'all. Smootch and I have been plotting something too and we're hoping to get a chance to give it ago without the distractions of normal life.
But that's not for weeks! Which is practically forever away. In the meanwhile, a major dejunking of the home, craft supplies, fabric, and tester garments I've made must happen. Wish me luck (or at least endurance :D).
