Christmas Shopping

Hello everyone how are you all? I am up to my eyes in orders for Christmas which makes me very happy. Top 5 items at the moment are sets of 5 bamboo bibs, sets of 5 crayon wallets ( my customers like a bargain) 3 bear pencil rolls and lots and lots of make up bags with reusable bamboo pads. Also some elf toe Christmas stockings. My new little studio feels like santa's grotto very exciting. I am making my way through my Christmas present list and after a sit down chat around the kitchen table we have decided as a family only to give handmade gifts this year mainly from UK makers. This makes me very happy not only will the gifts be gorgeous, unique and fabulous quality I am going to enjoy the whole process much more. The service you get from small business is so far removed from the big chains that it is a total pleasure. What are you giving this year? I hope you give handmade. Happy Thursday.

Its's Been a While But I'm Back

Hello everyone can you believe I haven't blogged for nearly 4 weeks? I have had the biggest headache with the move you can imagine. ( maybe not its been totally terrible) I never want to go through that again, Lots of rubbish service from so many people from removals to broadband as well as a million other issues I won't bore you with but where has a pride in one's work gone to? and I am sorry to say so but the spoken word means nothing to so many businesses. ( not this one) But I am back ( on very limited internet access). I have my sewing machines set up and my studio sort of unpacked and I am loving getting on with work. I have a back load of orders from the most wonderful and patient customers ever and a tone of sewing I want to get in before Christmas. So glad to be back. Happy Sunday.
