Hello Dear Friends!
Today I just want to address something that has been bothering me and it's not you it's me! Over the last few years I have come out with many patterns and I post them up with all excitement and the greatest hopes they will be loved and enjoyed.. this is my hope still :)
And from time to time in between these patterns I will come up with an extra idea or a thought that I get really excited about and of course I want to share
them with you right away so I think to myself with just a little spare time I can do it!
Then in all that excitement and with every good intention I tell you I will share these extra things but then something will happen and I just can't get that promise filled at that time. And believe me this bothers me, this has kept me awake at nights!
This year I'm learning to say "I don't know when" OR "one day when I get the chance" because my life and my time is just not my own, I have children. I also have parents that I help out and all my other duties that life requires. So most of all my blog work and my videos are done when I should be sleeping but I work late at night when I can hog all the time to myself!
Anyway, here's a good example of what I'm talking about; at the start of this year I posted a Wybie pattern and while filming his video tutorial I ended up making an Einstein doll with the same exact pattern. This wasn't planned, it just worked out that way since I used lighter colors for tutorial purposes.. well that was great and I could have left it at that and with the one pattern you get 2 different characters! But no, I had to take it a bit further and I wanted to redesign Einstein's body and make him fatter and release that pattern too so I make this announcement to you all and I had the time to do it then bam, the school phones and my daughter has to be rushed to the hospital! She broke her leg, and broke it in a way that needed to be closely watched as she might of needed corrective surgery. So for the next 2 months we were in and out of the hospital. And with us spending so much time at the hospital I was overwhelmed with inspiration by the surroundings and before I knew it I was designing a crochet wheelchair, an IV drip pole and a sick sock monkey and I have to add that when I get hit with inspiration I have to go with it, I can't fight it! And at this same time our lives completely changed since my daughter was almost completely dependent on me to help her with her day to day new life in a cast, and my time was even more limited. So Einstein got put on the back burner.
Once I was back on track I began to fulfill an earlier promise of redesigning all my Little Bigfoot patterns and all my time now has been dedicated to them. I'm very happy to say I've gotten 5 of them redesigned and each one has a video tutorial too! And aside from them I've also posted extra patterns and tutorials as the inspiration hit.
So you see, just like I got to the Little Bigfoot patterns like I promised I would, I will also redesign Einstein's body and I will absolutely get to him because I know myself and I will not ever feel completely at rest until I
get all the *boxes checked* so please be patient with me while I catch up with myself!
And in the meantime you can still make him with the original pattern. Other people have made him and they love him just as he is.. and his new pattern will get done just as soon as time and inspiration allows <3
One day at a time and onwards and upwards we go :)
Have a wonderful day and thanks for understanding!
