Hello there! Some of you may have noticed that I took a rare break from Pattern Observer last week. Well, I am delighted to announce that it was due to the birth of our first child, Ruth McClellan Chapple! She was born on Sunday, September 9th at 6am and weighed 8 lbs 1 oz. She is an absolute delight and we are enjoying every minute with her (even the late nights!).
Thanks for all the supportive emails over the past couple weeks. It has been wonderful to hear from all you Pattern Observer mommas out there! I can already tell that little Ruth is going to inspire many prints and projects and I am considering adding a guest post on trends in the children’s market. Let me know your thoughts and if more information on this market would be appreciated. I am taking a month or so off from client work, but will continue blogging, mentoring, updating and creating class materials.
