I've been thinking for some years about publishing my patterns and this seems like a good way to do it: sharing them in one big collection. I'm not sure I want to sew small things for the rest of my working life, so it's good to be channelling more energy into writing/designing.
Although of course I do have a deep love of actually making things, and i'm looking forward to trying some different projects in the near future.
Thanks too for your interest in pre-ordering the book. My publisher tells me this can be done through either their site or amazon/book depository and I also found this NZ-based site where copies can be ordered too.
Although it is being published in the USA it will also be readily available in NZ bookshops and I'll try and get some copies to put in my etsy shop.
The title of this post was inspired by my new favourite album- Silver and Gold, the latest Christmas songs by Sufjan Stevens.
I bought it yesterday and walked around the city today accompanied by the Christmas Unicorn. Beautiful stuff, especially the Joy Division tribute at the end.
