Long overdue post

Sorry about that, folks. I was doing so good with keeping up with the blog, and then life did what life does and threw me a curve ball.

Right, so this is a quick post because I need to get ready to head out the door in about twenty minutes (will be explained further down).

Thing the first: Due to aforementioned curve ball, I’m now residing with my parents. This may seem like a horrid thing, but it solves a couple of issues. One being that I can continue designing and teaching full time (which, if you follow any other designer, you know that this job really doesn’t pay a lot). It also allows me to be a great help to my family by being around to keep my dad company during the day and serve as a driver to get him where he needs to go.

Now, this also has other benefits. The first being I have a lot more time to design. So, expect to see a lot more coming out from me. I know I missed a March pattern release, but I will get it (and possibly a second pattern) released this month. The other benefit leads us to…

Thing the second: If you live in the Polk County, Florida area and would like to take crochet classes or workshops with me, then you need to go check out Four Purls Yarn Shop in Winter Haven. If you go to their site and check out the classes link, you will see a whole array of crochet classes and workshops that I’ll be offering there at the store. Laura is super crochet friendly, so I highly encourage everyone to go there!

Thing the third: The main reason I’m leaving in now 15 minutes? I’m going to pick up my first spinning wheel today!!! Yes, I’m highly excited about this. Although, I’m unsure as to when I’ll have time to get on the wheel this week (gotta love deadlines as they mean I’m going to get a check later). But, I’m very excited as this is something I’ve wanted for a while. I was able to secure a great deal on the wheel and just couldn’t turn it down. Pictures later once I get the lovely home. 🙂

Thing the fourth: Registration for the Knit and Crochet Show (aka Chain Link) opens tomorrow. Remember, I’m teaching three classes, and I hope you not only can make it to Chain Link, but that you’ll take one (or all) of my classes. I’m nervous about class counts and all that, so if you’re interested in any of the topics (amigurumi, broomstick lace, and felting), please consider taking my class. We have a lot of fun when I teach. And in the amigurumi class, there might even be games of catch. 🙂

Okay, time to finish getting ready and head out. I’m going to get back on track with posting here. I promise. 🙂
