what I liked for that pattern and just figured out how to sew the background. Explaining how to do that never occurred to me –though essential in pattern designs! For now the first five patterns I designed are all in the hands of my pattern testers.
Hopefully, if all goes well I’ll get their input and edits, make the revisions and off to the wholesale market they’ll go by the Holiday!In NC the Clay and Blogs Show opens Friday! My piece was shipped and waiting for the opening. In Anchorage, Katie’s new Gallery space is on track and scheduled to open next Friday also for an October First Friday Grand opening. She’s got the band lined up, furniture installed and artwork starting to be delivered and moved. My boys were there last week installing her very cool art hanging system. In addition to some new wall sculptures I’m working on, I’m finishing an original counter wrap for her. I’ve got the metal custom cut and I’ll be welding ornamental leaves and branches on it and installing on Monday. I nearly caused a
major news event yesterday though as 50+ mile an hour winds whipped through Anchorage, and of course that was the day I needed to fit the 10 foot piece of metal on the counter. Getting the huge hunk of metal from the back of my truck across the sidewalk and into the Gallery turned the metal into a shiny galvanized SAIL! My finger tips bent backwards and holding on for dear life, the lunch crowd inside Cake Studio next door were treated to the sight of woman vs. metal and WONDER MAMA prevailed –though today, all my fingers are killing me but at least my pride is in tact –and so are Katie’s new windows!
