In my last post I told y’all I’d give you a little more detail about me becoming a designer.

I wasn’t surprised when I sat down at my computer one morning and found an email from Jen who is Head Honcho over at Fandom in Stitches. I figured that she would be emailing me in regards to The Hobbit embroidery I donated for TABABOM. Imagine my shock when I read through the email to find that Jen had emailed me to ask if I would become an embroidery designer for FiS.

Can you believe it? Me? A designer!

The first thing I did was call my mom and tell her about it! Then I sat about typing a reply email saying OF COURSE!

To be honest with you guys, I have NOT come down from the high of becoming a designer! All week I’ve been looking at things thinking, “That would be a great embroidery!” I’ve already designed a few more embroidery patterns that I’m testing out before sending off to her! Be ready for some Battlestar Galactica(my latest craze if y’all didn’t know!)

I found FiS many moons ago when I was barely starting out as a quilter. I had seen Jen’s Harry Potter patterns and I was amazed. At that point I hadn’t explored the options of fandom crafting. I was still crafting under the influence of applique fish!

Now that I’m a bit more experienced as a crafter, I can fully appreciate the awesome of so many free fandom patterns! I made a TARDIS pillow for a friend over winter break using an awesome pattern from FiS! I’m very excited and incredibly honored to be able to provide free fandom embroidery patterns! I’ve even come up with a list of some projects to start on by looking at the Requests page on the FiS website!

What about my list you say? Well, here it is, in it’s completely illegible form! I promise you guys, I know what it says!

Look forward to some incredibly geeky posts soon!
