I've also got two other exciting bits of news to share! My dear friend Cathy (also a sewing scientist) gave me the support and "activation energy" needed to open an Etsy shop. It is stocked with my line of Scientific Seamstress ePatterns, and ready for business! Stephanie, another one of my brainy lab personnel, started a Flickr group for photos of clothing made from my patterns. It is amazing to see so many clever concoctions all together in one place! Please check it out and add your own photos! For future reference, there is a "Flickring" button on the left hand side bar.
Despite my inattention, the garden is thriving and providing us with lots of yummy food. These pictures are a few weeks old, but right now we are in peak tomato season and loving it! The eggplant seedlings have really taken off, and we are hoping to have a bumper crop of them as well.
The squash plants have gotten MUCH bigger, but they've been taken over by some sort of mold and aren't so pretty any more. They are still producing, however, so we are keeping them around. I really need to get out and give them some attention...maybe when these eBooks are finished (yeah, right).
