Happy November!

By now I’d hoped to have had a finished sun conure to show off, but as you might have guessed by the condition of its instructions, that hasn’t happened. My mother passed away a little over a week ago, which threw things into disarray. Let me wrap up some loose ends:

  • The winner of Sunflower Bear contacted me, and I (eventually) got the bear shipped up the Jersey Turnpike to Samantha. Congratulations!

  • I entered the sun conure in Spoonflower’s cut-and-sew competition, and ordered the revised one on a fat quarter of basic quilting cotton. It didn’t win anything, in part because I didn’t get the FQ in time to sew one and put the picture onto the actual pattern. It was still kinda fun to see the “likes” come in though.

Hopefully things will calm down a little (although holiday sewing will start up soon) and I can get a couple of patterns out this month. The elephant for sure, and maybe a sweater dragon. (No, that was not a typo.)

In the meantime, I have a nifty book review - a modern one, this time! - coming on Monday, so stay tuned.
