September Aurifil Designer of the Month >>> Pat Wys

2014 Pat Wys aurifil designer button

Yup.. I missed it…this time not at the very end of the month. I completely lost September (when you see the photos of my studio in my interview for November Designer of the Month, it will be very clear how I missed it!)  And I had the block made by the 10th too….seriously…..I know I won’t be able to convince some of you that I did…but I did have it done.  I just never found the time or quiet space to sit down and write about it.

So there you go….Now on with the story. You’ve been here before no doubt. So you know the spiel. Pat Wys is the wonderful designer for the Aurifil Designer of the Month of September. Read her great interview with Pat Sloan here.

Here’s her block, Stars of my Life:

Now if you are new to the Aurifil Designer of the Month program, then here’s some great news for you! You can win a big box of Aurfil thread…the big rolls… ($120 value!!) just by making Pat’s block and posting it here on Flickr. Easy peasy! Each month one random winner gets picked.  So it could be you! Go make yourself this great block and share it with the world. You could get more that world-wide admiration; you could get the goods!

Okay October’s block IS DONE…and I hope to posting that in a few days…

Wish me luck!
