One year ago this week, I applied for my first pattern test for Blaverry Children’s patterns. I was so excited but there is no way I could have imagined what that one email would do. I have taken a very keen liking to pattern testing and have done 30 this year!
This is a collage of most of the tests that I took part in, from newest to oldest. It is so cool to even see how far my photography skills have come (hubby’s, too, since he helps with a lot of the shoots now!) I even signed up for a couple of online photography classes after seeing what I could do just on my own with tips from friends who know more than I do!
I didn’t blog about a lot of the patterns I tested and sewed but I want to change that in the coming year. And I will kick start that with a blog tour in January. I have never participated in one before but I had set that as a goal in the fall. This one will have give-aways and everything!
Thank you for all of your likes and comments throughout the past year. It is always great to know that someone, somewhere is actually reading what I am sharing on my small little corner of the vast cyber world!
Looking forward to seeing you all in 2017!!!
