I hope you had a great weekend, needless to say - I've been swamped, there has been a lot of bookhou love the past few weeks and I am cutting, printing and sewing like a mad woman. even though I get help with cutting, ironing and sewing - a good majority of the work is done by me. I mix my own ink colours and do all the printing and spend long hours in front of piles and piles of fabric happily sewing, I often get asked how I do it, well one thing is that I'm fast - I know how much time every item takes and I do things in stages and steps, most of the time things are all cut and printed and partially sewn (like zippers are put on the day bags) and when it's ordered I sew the rest of it and attach the straps. john is a big help with packaging orders, but most of the time it's me that wraps your packages and signs the notes included. I want you to know that you are helping to support a small family run business and there is lots of love that goes into the things you buy! thank you for all your purchases - we appreciate it very much! to show our appreciation I will be doing regular giveaways on fb - I hope you will visit often so you get a chance to enter.
this past weekend I did a giveaway for new pouches (shown above) - when I first started making textile goods, these pouches were a real staple and I was asked by regular customers to bring them back. I use my pouches on a regular basis - it helps me organize the contents in my bag. piper even has her own in my bag to carry all her little treasures.
enjoy your monday! - and I know I was asking about the snow, and as much as I love snow, those balmy winter days are truly missed. xxa
