Greetings and salutations! Today’s post is brought to you by the letter “J”, “J” for Jon. I’m Patty’s DH (Damn, oops I mean Dear Husband in Twitter shorthand) and I’ll be guest blogging for your reading pleasure. Patty is up to her neck in cut up fabric (literally!) as she is busting her butt to get the next set of MODKID patterns done. And lucky for me, I’ve been getting to preview them and trust me, you’re gonna like ‘em!
Let’s get down to business. We randomly selected the lucky winner of last week’s giveaway and without further ado its Elka who was #214:
I LOVE your fabrics and patterns! I was just on your site to send the web address to a friend of mine who is looking for great fabric for some sewing projects she has in mind for her soon-to-arrive baby. Your stuff is fresh, cute, and beautiful. I am so thankful for designers like you that INSPIRE my generation to sew! - Elka, firstname.lastname@example.orgA rotary cutter that looks like a compass, some grommets (that word makes me think of a character from Sesame Street), a Sun & Surf Tote pattern and 3 yards of Patty Young fabric are going out to Elka and thank you to all who entered and left such great comments. Elka, I would sew up the tote for you myself before sending but since I got a C- in Home Ec Sewing in junior high, I’ll be merciful and let you do the sewing yourself!
Now for some fun stuff. Back a few weeks ago at the conclusion of the WDT, we decided to do some R&R at the end of the trip. We settled on Ruby Falls as this was a favorite childhood destination of Patty’s family. It was a really cool place (and by that I mean cold, it was 50 degrees down there), so I’d like to share some pics with you.
Who wants a shower?
Call a plumber! The Earth sprung a leak!
Keep me warm Sydney. It’s freezing down here!

“All right Mr. De Mille, I’m ready for my close-up,”
That was fun! Is it time for lunch yet?
The tour guide told us that once we got back to the surface that we were deemed “survivors”. I think the hardest part of surviving was making it through Sydney’s complaints about being hungry for lunch. A tip for all of you: don’t take a 5 year old down a 1000 foot hole without snacks at 11 am. Do so at your own peril! All in all, it was a good time and something for us and the kids to remember.
I have just a couple more small items before I let you get on your way, so hang in there!
Our very popular pattern Frida has just gone into “out of stock” status but will be restocked in a couple of months when the next set of patterns get produced (Hurry up Patty!). We’ll let you know when we have them back in.
Also, I’ve updated the website with some new graphics and content reflecting Patty’s newest fabric collection, Playdate. Check out the new Home page and About page.
You’ve made it. You want a cookie (sorry I had to say it)? Well, I want one too but that’s not in my diet. I’m of the opinion that diets are self-inflicted torture, but I digress. Thanks for hanging out with me today and I promise Patty will be back for the next post.
