About three weeks ago, I came home from a grand European adventure. It was absolutely amazing! I plan on writing about some of our travels here on a weekly basis. We were in Ireland, England, France and Germany, so I have a lot of inspiration to share!
Since then I’ve been catching up my email inbox, Craftsy questions and trying to regroup my projects and remember where I was on each one. I’ve actually made up a giant (scary) list of all of the projects that I currently have going on at once, and just looking at it has me wondering if I can run away again. As of right now I have 20 (eeeekkk!) projects listed on it, but I’m veeerrryyy slowly making my way thru them. I honestly had no idea just how many half-started garments and patterns I had floating around my studio. I think I’ll share my list here sometime this week and cross my fingers that it helps to give me motivation to check some things off.
I did come home from our trip to a very lovely package in the mail; my very first magazine article!
I know a few of you have come here recently to read my posts on identifying, cutting and sewing plaid, and now you’ll be able to have that information in a lovely printed format. This first article discusses the history of plaid, finding the balance of its pattern and identifying your plaid. There will be a second plaid installment in the Sew News Dec/Jan issue that covers much, much more, and I’ll be sure to let you know when it is available.
UPDATE: You can now read the entire article online! Check out here: Sewing with Plaid, Part One
