We have had a busy couple of days, heads down writing new patterns for release. So we are really excited to be able to announce 6 new patterns that are now available in the Melly & me range!! One of the new patterns has a funny story attached that I just have to share with you all.
Some time ago I posted a picture of a new little creature along with a post and gave no introduction. In my head I had made a bird that I liked to call "Tweet" but within days there were comments and emails from people about how much they loved the owl!! My poor Tweet developed a real identity crisis! Over the next few weeks I decided to give "Tweet" a bit of a facelift to make him look more owlish, renamed him "Hooty", and hoped that he would feel like the owl everyone thought he was. After that I made him a few friends and took them along to the Hills Festival. Would you believe that everyone who commented on them said "I love the little birds"!!!!! Poor little fellas, they could never win. In the end I decided to make two different designs for the pattern and called them "Hooty & Tweet". I will let you decide which is which as by now I am so confused!!
Rosie has released this gorgeous "Messenger Birdies" pattern. The birdies have their own crocheted nests and are perfect gifts with a little message tag tied around their necks - just too cute!
And this stunning new quilt called "Billie"! She has made this up in a few different colour ways and it is so yummy.
Yes, Caitlin was the winner of the naming contest and I will email you soon to find out where to send your pattern. Your explanation of the name just fit her perfectly and I am so happy with this name. It was a tough choice as a few of the names were really standing out and I want to thank you all so much for your suggestions.
Don't forget that the giveaway for Rosie's Silly Bunny and the 2 Silly Bunny patterns (in prior post) is still running and anyone who leaves a comment on either post before next Tuesday 1st May will be put in the draw. Good luck!! - Melly.
