it's been half term ...

so it's been a bit quiet on the making front this week - a few wonkies have got eyes but apart from that ...

They're back to school on Tuesday though, so normal service will be resumed and I'll start panicking about how much stock I've got to make in just a few weeks.  In fact, just typing that sentence is enough to start me getting worried so I'd better be off and see if I can sneak some sewing time into the weekend

this week ...

... has mainly been about not sewing. 

I've had a run of 3 events in 3 weeks that were all amazing, and I spent so much time making stock that I felt just a little bit burnt out so ... I've spent the week sorting out my (much neglected) workroom and putting everything back where it actually lives, re-stocking all my supplies (which means I get some lovely packages through the door) and letting my fingers recover from all the sore patches the needles and scissors have left in their wake. 

I showed a friend a new product idea/prototype this morning and she absolutely loved it so I think I'm feeling ready to start sewing now ... here we go again

my current obsession ... revealed

this time I'm actually on the right computer to post a pic so here goes - my current obsession

it's been a while ...

I meant to update this regularly but it's been weeks since I've even thought about it!  I've been pretty busy what with re-stocking Between Dreams with Wonkies and building up my stock again following the market I did in Winchester.

Doing a market was a whole new experience for me but one that I really enjoyed ... it's a good job as I've got another one in a couple of weeks, as well as a craft fair on Saturday and 2 major events in one weekend in mid-November.  If I think about it too much I start to panic so I'm just concentrating on making as many wonkies as I can.  I've got a few cushion orders as well so I've got to squeeze those in somewhere.

I did manage to do something with my new obsession though - vintage crochet doilies.  I've bought some beautiful faux suede and am making cushions with the doilies - I'll post a pic (when I remember!).

That's it for now.
