It’s My Birthday!

Hello folks! First I thought I would start this off by tell you for the rest of September all my patterns are 50% off on Raverly in celebration of my 39th birthday. It’s an automatic discount – no coupon code needed. So if you have been on the site to use my patterns but wanted the PDF now is your chance to get them for way cheaper then normal. You can find the link to Raverly on each pattern page or go find them at https://www.ravelry.com/designers/jessica-phillips

Things are getting there for me. So much has been realized. So much has changed. So much is different. Maybe one day I’ll go into it. Maybe not. Probably not as it has to do with my ex and if he gets going I am sure he will remember I have a site he can view and he doesn’t need to know about it all. He was upset when he realized I blocked him on Facebook.

Just an update

It’s been a bit since I posted anything here. While this is not uncommon I thought I would explain why there hasn’t been much from me and why that will continue for a bit yet.

First thing is that I am moving. I can’t afford to live where I do anymore and my Mom is letting me stay with her till I find a place I can afford. I’ll be moving August 26th-September 2nd. Everything should be done Between August 27th-29th however. Someone owes me and they will pay it off by moving the big things.

Second thing is I was on new meds. About 6 months ago I started on Orencia via IV. After the first dose I got the flu really bad. It took about 4 months after that for me to get to the point where I didn’t cough, etc. I even had to have my inhalers which I hadn’t needed in 6 years. I went to see my rheumatologist 2 weeks ago and he put me on some other meds to help with pain until he got my inflammation rates. I hardly remember those 5 days I was on it. Everything was a dream. I forgot what I actually did & thought I had done things I hadn’t. I stopped it about 4 days ago & I am still so tired but at least I remember what I have done and not done.

Third things is that I am totally and utterly single. No more hanging on to a relationship that wasn’t working but I tried to make work anyhow. I am too old for that anymore.

I haven’t been designing for about a month now. I have 2 patterns out testing & 3 ready to be tested. I don’t know when I will have anything published except the 1 pattern I plan on publishing in September. I hope to get settled enough at my Moms for me to get back to designing and publishing my patterns. I am also working on putting a book together for the Mish Mash Blanket. Look forward to that as I will need proof readers and someone to test the knit squares for Hev. They all seem to be correct but I usually only knit socks so I might not catch anything.
