Wow, did 2013 really already end? I guess it did! It's been a whirlwind of a year over here - new house, new baby, etc. etc., but a great one at that. Funny thing is, I already know 2014 is going to be even more exciting (and in some ways, overwhelming!). No, there's not another baby coming.
Yes, things are starting to move fast for me and this little blog. I'm participating in several upcoming blog series, and my first adult pattern is well underway. I'm hoping for a spring/summer release. Very exciting - and terrifying!! I am not looking forward to testing a dozen sizes with eight cup sizes each. Fun, fun, fun. (But it will be worth it!)
So for 2014, my motto is this: Make big plans and get shit done.
In the meantime, I have the final mini-tutorial for you on Adobe Illustrator. I accidentally mixed up the order with last week's and this week's, but hopefully you don't mind. So today, I'm showing you how to set up your preferences in Illustrator. It sounds simple (and it is), but know how to do this (and when/why) will save you a ton of frustration when you start digitizing your patterns!
