This week has been crazy! My oldest daughter’s birthday party is tomorrow, and even though I have scaled way back this year it still seems to be taking up the week. So, I’m posting  few exciting things that have been happening (and a surprise for next week!) so I can go back to cleaning my house for tomorrow. (Lucky me?!) Thank goodness we only have two kids that have birthdays only once a year! I think I’ll be okay.

#1: I finally figured out Instagram! HOORAY! (and I love it.) I’ve added it to the sidebar so you can check it out here. Or you can follow along and see a few things from the last week… My youngest’s latest sewing project, Niagara Falls from my weekend trip… and you have to check out the crazy chairs from our hotel! There will be peeks of projects as I’m working and updates when there is a new post. The Instagrams are generally linked over to Twitter, so if you’re connected there you’ve already seen them – lucky you!

#2: Cynthia Frenette’s “I Can See Clearly Now” Pouch pattern is now for sale! She’s had it up on Etsy since Monday, but if you are not following Thread Riding Hood on Facebook you might have missed the announcement. You can get the pattern on Etsy, check out her post about it on her blog and check out my review of it too.

#3: Surprises! I’m super excited to be able to host another Canadian Online Fabric Shop post next week. And she’s got some surprises for you too – hooray!

And – because a post without pictures is no fun at all! Here’s a sneak peek of what I’m working on – can you figure it out? I’ll be posting a pattern and tutorial for it on Monday and you might catch some more pics on Instagram over the weekend if you are super curious! Hope you are having a great day today.
