Wednesday Weekly

Happy Wednesday! I want to thank all of the bloggers and pattern designers who have contacted me to give me their information about their blogs and companies. In almost all the emails I received, people were a little timid and shy about sharing and I know it can be really hard to put yourself out there! I really appreciate it and I hope that people continue to point me to their creative projects, I love to share! This week we have TWO first patterns from new designers so I hope you explore all the goodness below. Congrats to Ann and Amy!
