It also hasn't left me with a whole heap of motivation or inspiration, so rather than doing nothing, I've been keeping myself busy with an easy project - working on an updated version of my Pattern Folio for 2014 which includes the patterns posted on the blog this year (so, this is a very early advanced "heads up": it will go out in December to email subscribers - if you'd like to receive a copy you'll need to be subscribed to the blog feed by email by 1st December - it will not be going out retrospectively as I discovered last year, it's just too much work to do it that way).
Anyway, as I was going through the patterns I noticed that I didn't have samples for a couple of them and decided to have a play.

Similar to some others I've done, I find it's a good strategy for me to stick with something I know works when I can't think of a new idea - at least it gets me drawing which often leads to new ideas anyway. I particularly like the "stem" ends on the end of the "olbs" and would like to play more with the idea.

A simple scroll design :)
Unless I put together any more patterns before December, I'm pretty much done with the folio now, which for me is an amazing feat to be prepared so far in advance! Love that!
Hope you all have a fantastic weekend :)
