A whole lot. That's what. New Fiddle Knits Collections are in the works and progressing slower than I had originally hoped, but still going great nonetheless.
This Spring will see the release of two design collections. I plan on opening up preorders for them as soon as I can think of a catchy name. You'd think that would be one of the first things to get done, right? Nope. Not with me, at least not for these 2 current collections. I have names for all the patterns in each of them, so that's always helpful. Both collections have a theme, which is also good. I've come up with possible collection names, but I keep tossing them aside as not clever enough, or just plain eh. I'm planning on working on names today in the midst of doing everything else.
Want a teaser on the upcoming collections? One is going to be full of really fun hats. It will include two designs I already published: Love Birds Chapeau
and Thistle & Shamrock
. Besides these there will be a hat with koi, butterflies, lotus flowers, a snail (I promise, it's really cool/cute!) The preorder for this collection will be offered at a steal of a deal price. (Think around the $10.00 range.) The second collection is all about green. Not really so much about going green and ecofriendly, but just the color green. It will be filled with tidbits of facts about green. Each design is named for a green related expression of sorts. Examples would be "Green With Envy," Leafy Greens," "A Certain Shade of Green," etc.
I anticipate preorders for both collections somewhere at the end of April. Keep your eyes open and check back here often!
Moving update: Chris and I are still actively looking for a place to rent. It's getting a bit depressing. Most places (unless they're really run down and in less than desirable locations) require that our income be 3-4 times the rent amount. It's kinda crazy. The rent covers everything (heat, water, etc.), so it's not like there will be other bills beside car insurance and cell phones, so it seems that 3-4 times the rental amount is a bit excessive. Anyway, that's today's rant!
