Something new is coming to Longhorn Prairie.

{Hey there, y’all. I haven’t been around much lately. I am just letting you know I haven’t fallen off the face of the earth. I do have a few things to let you know about. So here goes…….}

Oh my word I have been so busy lately. I have been working feverishly to finish these 2 patterns so I could have them ready to release like 2 weeks ago. Oops! That didn’t happen.

Both are in the testing phase now and pro photos have been taken.

(In my own defense though I do have 5 children under age 12 and I homeschool them. Life happens and I tend to set goals that are just this side of unrealistic for myself sometimes.)

Sorry, I can’t share those with you just yet. I will, however, have them by the end of the week and will let you have a look. I am very excited about one of these patterns. It’s gorgeous and so simple yet it looks like something more difficult. It is way cool, just wait.

The other was a request by my 3 year old daughter for her 4th birthday (August 10th). That’s all I will say for now. Ha!

Something new (ongoing discount):

I have set my ravelry shop to automatically take 20% off of your total purchase when you add 3 or more patterns to your cart. So the more you buy the more you save. Nice deal, right? This deal is here to stay and is only on ravelry.com. No coupon code is needed discount is automatic when you add 3 or more patterns to your cart.

Coonskin Cap pattern: If you have this pattern in your ravelry library or etsy account and have not downloaded yet you may want to do that if you like it the way it is. I will be revamping that pattern soon with a completely different yarn. I found the perfect yarn at Hobby Lobby sometime back at a special request from a customer and it made such a great raccoon hat that I have decided that I will redo the old pattern with this yarn. The same stitch counts won’t work with this other yarn so it will be a complete overhaul. All previous customers who still have it in their online ravelry/etsy libraries will get the update. I still have a few things to do before I get to that. I just wanted to give plenty of warning. This is one of my older patterns. I have much more experience with designing, writing and photography than I had when I published this pattern so it’s time to update. Just look how cheesy this photo is taken on my husband’s flat-bed trailer. I thought the weathered wood made a good back drop. Ha! I have learned so much in the last 5 years.

That’s about all I’ve got at the moment. Stay tuned as I will be back later this week to show you some pics of the photo shoot my fabulous photographer sister and I did this past weekend. Hailey of HDL Photography is a fabulous photographer, and I’m not just saying that because she is related to me. She really is good at what she does.

I will sign off for now. May your day be filled with love and blessings.

Love, April
