It’s both an old British saying, and the name of Tula Pink’s latest fabric line. She has mentioned that part of the name refers to working steadily towards a goal, and that steady work will get you to the finish line eventually.
If you have been reading through the blog, you have seen a HUGE theme about starting over, moving forward, all those ways of saying that I want to work on this and I want to make it a success. I have also posted how I am working on patterns again, and I’m remaking some of them in more modern fabric. That being said – I’ve finished a new sample of Fat Quarter Fabulous using Slow and Steady. I’m realizing this is more than just making another sample, this is a tangible expression of this reboot. I could not have picked a better fabric line for this new sample! I’m both getting my technical content updated as well as updating my samples. Next up is to get it quilted and get a photo of it in all its glory.
The website/blog is now on line and ready to go. I will continue to update as I add more content and get more photos but the core of it is in place, and I couldn’t be happier. I also dug in and created my logo in Adobe Illustrator. I overcame a huge learning curve there thanks to online tutorial videos, and I’m pleased with it. I was able to keep the hand-drawn aspects of my original logo, while converting it to a format that can go on a number of things. Color me happy as I check another thing off my list.
I will keep looking at that quilt when I get discouraged, or confused or tired. Slow and Steady Wins the Day. I will figure all this out. I will create new patterns, and I will continue to do that which I love so very much.
