So this is what happens when a certain someone doesn't manage to meet her deadline around here...
She panics, then worries, then procrastinates.
Then she works to finish all the other looming deadlines that are critical and the patterns get put on the back burner. She thinks about them a lot.
Then she has some printer backups and she tells herself that she can't do anything about it and to "just relax".
Then she has some color matching issues on the fabric and she starts to think that maybe these patterns are doomed.
Then life throws a couple unforeseen delays in her way and she decides to take it in stride. Kind of.
Then one morning she suddenly wakes up, looks at the calender and realizes... oh my goodness, these patterns need to be finished like yesterday, like last week! Like really last week!
So she spends a couple sleepless nights finishing them up, getting them edited and finally.... gets them sent off to print.
She is so happy and relieved and feels like perhaps she might have her life back.. until the next deadline of course... which happens to be tomorrow! LOL!!
And her she is now. Writing a blog post about it all while she waits for the pdfs to get loaded to the site and she can move on with her world. Sorta. :-)
So without further delay... we are finally finished with MAHALO, FIONA- the turtle and HULA GIRL- a super simple skirt perfect for an afternoon project for that favorite girl in your life!
All 3 PDF's are done and ready for download. Printed patterns will arrive by the end of next week and you are more than welcome to pre-order them now and yours will be the first to ship out when the patterns arrive. Please remember that if you order other goodies with these patterns, the whole order will wait until the patterns are ready late next week!
