Happy Wednesday, makers! First of all, a huge thank you to everyone who snapped up my patterns during the sale last week, I really appreciate it! Please take advantage of the sewalongs that are available and get in touch with me if you have any questions! You can reach me at  If you are looking for knits for your Blackwood Cardigan, keep your eyes open for the new Blackbird Fabrics sweater knits that are coming soon! I’ve seen the samples and they are really beautiful. It feels like September just FLEW by, but I am looking forward to October and sharing some more indie makes with you guys. Thank you for your patience while I flooded my blog with sale related things this past week, I’ve got some cool new posts coming soon!

  1. Another podcast that was SO much fun to listen to. My husband wandered into my office wondering what all the giggling was about 🙂 Kelli is lovely and I wish her all the success in the world as she reaches up into that stratosphere of printed patterns which I can truly appreciate how scary and thin the air gets as you absorb the financial risk it means 🙂 I was disappointed nonetheless that it’s not the Ogden she’s printing!! Hopefully she’ll do that next year 🙂

  2. Thanks for including my backpack, Helen! I hadn’t see AllieJ’s trench and oh golly!!!! All the heart eyes. Can’t wait to listen to this week’s podcast!
