A busy week ahead

I'm going to be taking a bit of a "blog-cation" this week. I need the time to work on this:

People are waiting (im?)patiently for the pattern, and it's in my hands and has been for a month. It's just that this is such a busy time of year, what with planting, weeding, mowing, etc., etc.... all those outdoor activities that never end all summer. So I've got to eke out some time from somewhere, and I guess the blog will have to be it. It does take time to write posts, and right now it's time better spent working on the pattern. I'm nearly done with the proofreading, but little progress has been made on actually sewing animals (although I don't have to make them ALL!). So I'm going to really push it this week, and my goal is to have it wrapped up by the end of the week. That's my 'goal', at least. You know me... everything always takes longer than I plan for it to, but we'll see.

I may try and get you a sneak peek or two in here, but don't hold your breath. ;)

More details on the pattern here.

Yay! I look forward to seeing what you make! Take all the time you need, and I'll be waiting patiently to see your results. Have fun!

I've been reading LiEr's blog about those. Good luck. Is your task to make one, some or all? Should be fun.

I finished the proofreading and got my notes typed and sent to LiEr today - yay! The rest should just be fun. ;) No, I don't have to make them all. I can make as many as I want, but only one is necessary for the test. I think they could be addicting, but Courtney's mom might not appreciate it if I made them all and gave them to her - ha! That little girl has more than enough stuffed animals. ;) I also have a lot of other projects in the queue.... ;)

Ahhh, Jenny... I've been TRYING to use the iCloud. What a pain it's been. :( And it isn't working. Weird. I don't want to write it all out here, but if you're interested, you could email me via the link on my sidebar. If not, that's fine. I'm okay with how things are going at the moment and will probably just leave them that way.

Just like Jenny said, take the time your need :) I'll be waiting patiently too. Even though I am excited to see which animal you and Courtney chose!

I'm excited to see your results, and to be able to buy the pattern. I think these might make neat little guys to give to the local chemo clinic for pediatric patients, along with a matching fleece blanket.

Jenny said...

I'll send you an email later today!


Grandma G said...

I think that would be a wonderful place for them to go, RevAnne!

Jenny, I did email you back... hope you got it. Just haven't had time for more details yet. At least My Photo Stream is coming through to my PC from my iPad. Nothing going the other way, though.
