Thank you so so much for your lovely, encouraging comments on my last post, I can't express how much I appreciate those sentiments.
I've been spending time making up the bags that I like to pack my jewellery in before sending them off to good homes. It's quite cathartic really. I did a job lot of cutting out both floral fabric and linings last week and then, with an hour to spare before school pick up on Friday, I sewed them together. Finally, whilst the husband was reading the Model her bedtime story that night I snuck upstairs to finish off the loose ends of thread. A vintage button to stitch on and I shall have a good pile to see me through a while to come and even better, I now have some time to devote to sewing up another dress. So many ideas flooding my head at the moment.
I've been quite productive since the children got back to school earlier this month, I think starting the new year has given me the push I needed to get into second gear. Oh and one thing I forgot to mention last week is that my chandelier earrings are currently being featured in UK Handmade's Valentine showcase.
By the way, apparently last Monday was 'Blue Monday', supposedly the most miserable day of the year. I actually felt quite chirpy then but the weather today is damp and grey to say the very least.
What are you up to?
