I almost can't believe that this is my 100th post on this blog... although, to be fair I wrote 6 posts in 2007 when I first started this blog and then totally neglected it for several years. In any case, I am excited!
To celebrate, I have switched over to my own domain - I had bought it a month or two ago but for some reason held off switching. I think it has been pretty seamless, except that the "you might also like" suggestion of other posts at the bottom of each post has some repeats in it. I contacted the folks who run that widget and hopefully they will be able to fix it soon.
I also created a Needle and Spatula Flickr pool where you can share anything you made from tutorials or patterns on this blog, or inspired by projects on this blog. It makes me so happy that people are making things with my tutorials and patterns and I would absolutely love to see what you have made!
I also wanted to share a preview of my next pattern that I am working on finishing up...
You may remember this messenger bag from my post about starting my Etsy shop... I mentioned that I hoped to write a pattern for it and I am almost done! The design is made with free motion embroidery/applique and I am including both the vine design above and a circles design:
I hope to finish the pattern next week, so keep your eyes out!
