Weekly Thread – 5/17/21

Busy, busy, busy! Turns out I’ll probably have to build a whole new customer base for my tote bags… Nobody currently following me seems to be particularly interested. Feeling a little dejected now, but carrying on!

Finished Projects

I could fill this with totes, but that feels kind of like cheating, so no finishes this week.

Current Projects

OTD Bargello SAL

Part 5 – Done!

I added my own little spot of color pizazz in this design, but otherwise it is faithful to the original pattern. I hope other people in this SAL add their own little pops of color, but that is totally up to them.

I’ve also started on part 6, but still quite a ways to go on this part.

Machine Embroidered Products

I’ve got 2 patterns for totes ready to go, and I’ve got a couple more in the works. I’m also adding a quirky diaper bag pattern soon!

Check out my new tote bags HERE!


This project is in temporary hibernation.

Queen-Size Quilt

Hibernating… wanna work on this so bad!

Upcoming Projects

Because… why not?! NO!


So much to do, so little time.

Need to find a way to better market my totes and embroidery services. So much of business is like running around blind and trying to figure things out. I’m in the process of switching to a new (more mature) logo and re-evaluating my business plan, all while keeping current projects rolling.

Father’s day is coming up… maybe it’s not too late to get some embroidery projects ready for that… but guys don’t generally care for tote bags. Actually as far as I know, guys don’t much care for embroidered things in general.


It felt like I got more done this past week than I actually did. At least based on what I have to say about this past week, looking back, I got a few totes ready, made some Etsy listings, finished a SAL part… messed up a part of my SAL release process, but hopefully that wont happen again.

I’m human folks! I’m sorry! (Still feel bad for botching the pattern release.)

Hopefully this coming week will be actually productive rather than just feel productive. Though I think part of the problem is in running a business… there’s really a lot of background work that just isn’t “picture perfect” or visible at all, nor is it really interesting to most people.

Either way, “Just Keep Humming!”

As always… Thanks for reading!
