. . . And what better time for a blog remodel to usher in the new season! What do you think of my new digs? If you are viewing from afar via subs--please, come on outta there and see what's shaking in the real world. Come sit a spell on my front porch. I've got it all gussied-up for Fall. Make yourselves at home. Have some hot cider and homemade pumpkin bread. Listen to the wind in the trees, watch the leaves drift along. Breathe in the crisp cool air. Just holler if you need anything. I'll be deep in the bunkers here at PatternBee Headquarters, that little room at the back of my house where all the FUN happens. (smile) The dust is settling and I'm slowly hooking back up. Very soon the website and printers will be happily buzzing along again too. Everything should be in order and organized for a seamless re-entry before the shop doors open again October 1st. I'm almost ready, keeping my fingers crossed. Other shop news:: My two crafty girls Grace and Ginger, have been busily making things throughout the summer and are now, as we speak, "stocking the shelves" of their Etsy shop. I'll share the link when they are ready. It's their call. I may even add a few things now and then. I tell ya, it's all very exciting!
