I've spent a lot of time lately going over things and deciding what is truly important to me. I have come to realize that there are things that we choose, and things that choose us. Have you ever noticed that?
Designing is something I feel has chosen me, rather than the other way around. Especially in the last few months, my muse has been hollering at me -- not the usual whispers and hints I'm used to -- but full out, top-of-the-lungs screaming! I have no choice but to pay attention and listen. The design ideas often come fast and furious. I can't write quick enough to keep up with them. I need to make piles and piles of notes to shut the voices down for the time being, and I refer back to them frequently during the design and pattern writing process that follows.
This is part of what my life has been like of late and part of the reason I am re-emerging online after such a long hiatus. I have written at least a dozen new patterns recently and once my internet issues are completely sorted out, I am looking very forward to being able to offer them again.
I am still hoping to hear from you that have been so patiently faithful to me for so long.
