In the past few weeks I've had a few exciting Abby Glassenberg Design press pieces and projects completed and I want to share them with you.
My first Simplicity pattern is out and in stores nationwide.
I designed these! Simplicity 1681
This set includes two of my original Lovey Dovies (the bear and the bunny), my Baby Bear and Blankie Set, as well as my Chick and Egg Reversible Toy. The Baby Bear is also available by itself as an It's So Easy pattern, 1649.
And I'm working on a new set now that will come out next winter. Very exciting!
Have you checked out &Stitches? It's an ezine for people who love stitching of all kinds. It's self-published by two incredibly smart and talented designers, Nicole Vos van Avezathe and Carina Envoldsen-Harris. The magazine comes out quarterly and is just lovely. This issue has a woodland themes and includes a very nice profile of me and my work. I love this kind of creative magazine. It's beautiful, inspiring, free of advertising, and total homegrown in the very best way. Pick up a digital copy here.
You may remember my post at the beginning of January asking for readers to sign up for 15 minute phone calls with me for some research I was doing. Well, through that post I was able to spend a wonderful week in January talking to 18 incredibly generous, honest women…about my blog! Curious? I wrote a guest post for Oh My Handmade explaining the project and detailing what I learned. It was an amazing experience.
Okay, that's it for right now. I've got two video interviews lined up for the coming weeks, and a very long to-do list of new fun projects to tackle. I am so happy when I've got big things to sink my teeth into.
