almost there

We finally had our first snow "storm" of the winter, followed by some nasty ice. I was happy to have the snow, but I'm hoping I don't have to go out driving in it. People in the D.C. area are terrible drivers to begin with, but add any kind of inclement weather and forget about it.

Anyway, I spent most of my day today putting the final touches on my wristlet pattern. Thanks to some wonderful testers, it should be ready in the next few days. It's funny trying to write a pattern for something you make all the time and then trying to describe your process. I'm hoping that it'll be easy to understand and not sound like a bunch of bologna! I also wish I were a little better with the computer. Trying to get the pattern pieces and pictures right is a pain in my ass. Seriously.
This is the wristlet I made today, with some of my beloved Flea Market Fancy fabric. I'm proud of myself for actually using it! I plan on putting this one on etsy and a few others sometime later today, just in case you're interested.

Did I miss the cutoff for testing your pattern?! SHOOT! I've been anxiously waiting for this one! Well...if you still need someone (I'm a beginner & have used a pattern before). You can check my blog for some examples...I try to sew everyday! So much to learn.
