I received a request from a buyer on Etsy for patterns for the other elements of my Dragon Quilt. I've been planning to write these up for ages, but planning isn't doing! So this morning I set to and I've got my Double Dragon Silhouette appliqué pattern up and ready to go on both Etsy and Felt.
It's always surprising how long something like that takes. It's pretty simple, but I need to check and recheck (and unblock the jammed printer) before I'm satisfied. Next I need to work on getting patterns for the sword, the sun and the moon written up. I'm dreading the castle - that was horribly complicated when I did it myself and it'll take me a while to try and simplify the process, but I'll get there.
Other things occupying brain space at the moment is how to catch the bunny that I've spotted nibbling on my lettuces, or how to find the hole in the garden fence where it must be getting through. And what classes to take at the Taupo Symposium in July next year. The class booklet arrived about a week ago and they all look very enticing!
Tomorrow is the last day of school for the year for my kids. Eight weeks of summer holidays is looming! Hopefully we'll fit in some relaxation, some swimming, some camping, a few barbecues, good food and maybe a few glasses of cold white wine (must try and plant a grape vine next winter). So I'll apologise in advance if transmission is patchy round here and I wish you all a very merry and safe Christmas and New Year's.
