Wow, life gets busy doesn't it? I have been largely neglectful of my Townmouse Pattern business for the last two years. It has ticked along without me.
Our children are growing up.
Adelaide is 9 and has developed an obsession for horse riding.
We have two children old enough to drive (both still Learner drivers).
We have a new family member of the four legged (canine) variety. We now have gender balance in the home!
We renovated our farm house last year. While the builders were on site, the site manager and I made improvements to an old barn on the property. I feel very proud of the makeover we have achieved on the barn. It's amazing what a lick of paint and a pergola can do. Bunnings became my favourite store. We made simple changes on a budget that brought about improvements to the look and feel of the building. It's now a busy AirBnB rental. So yes, I've also become an AirBnB host in the last 12 months.
Lately though, I've found my way back to my attic studio.
I had a big tidy up a few weeks back and now I'm enjoying spending time there again. A podcast or Netflix series and a dog (or two) at my feet for company and I am back in my happy place.
Yesterday I launched my latest pattern, the Sienna Gathered Skirt.
I had done 80% of the work on this pattern two years ago, and then life sidetracked me.
I enjoyed getting back to the old files and bringing them up to a standard to release to you. I'm even thinking I might make one of these for myself.
To celebrate the launch there is 15% off all patterns until the end of July with the code SIENNA15.
I just love this rose gold stripe version by Kristie @thesewcraftybaker who kindly tested the pattern for me.
The big question is, what pattern to work on next?
