On Patterns New and Old

I have a confession to make... I am hopeless at making sure I get these patterns out in a timely manner. I get so excited when I first draw up the pictures and then I digitise the drawings fairly quickly. That process goes generally quickly and then I pull them over into my cross stitch program. At this point it will go back and forth for a while and I will question my sanity multiple times! I will often have a pattern done fairly quickly though and then it just sits there.

And sits, and sits, and sits.... for me to remember that I actually got to this stage with a pattern and hey I really should release it because it's doing noone any good just sitting there. But then I start to question myself. Is it really something that people want? Will they actually like it... and it continues to sit there for longer than it should.

So I started combing through my pattern drive on Monday, and let's just say that this month is going to be a really productive month!

See that little girl at the top of the panel of Around the World characters? Yeah that one... well that pattern was created by me about 6 years ago. I don't know why I didn't release it. I don't know what was going through my head at the time. I don't know if I always intended to and just forgot??

And what about this cutie? I designed this seal as part of the Circus Collection below. (oh you haven't seen that collection before this either)

 This collection was done about 4 months ago when I got inspired by something. I completed it and everything but never managed to do any more with it.

Aren't seals with circus hats cute? 

I've also taken the time to reevaluate where I was at with the deadlift girl and found that I actually loved how it was sitting and I finalised it up and I'm stitching up a prototype! 


Here is the current list though missing deadlift girl in this photo (now added to my list). And while a couple of these will need some mild tweaking with colours they actually are ready to release.  So please hold me to it but by the end of two weeks you should be seeing a few more new patterns from me.
-The Owl Tic Tac Toe is taking longer not because of the pattern itself but because of the instructions I'm writing for finishing it. 

So here is my promise to you guys (that I NEED you to hold me to!) By the end of Saturday the 14th of March I will have released 7 new patterns. I think that is perfectly reasonable and with a bit of fiddling 3 are already uploaded as drafts waiting for a couple more photos. 

Can you give me the encouragement I need? 

Happy Stitching,
