Drip and the jumper...

Saturday, 28 January 2012

A new DRIP just added to the Etsy shop (link at the side bar)...


A picture just taken of my pile of jumper on one of the settees... its finished!!!! woo hoo! All there is left to do is sew on the sleeves and up the side seams and down to the cuff, stitch in a few ends and its ready to wear! Im very pleased because I only started it a month ago. I went for all one colour in the end and thought maybe I shall single crochet a strip of charcoal on each edge if needs be.

I am working on a new hat pattern next. Something Milly Molly Mandy might wear to a fairy festival...!


And this kept me awake last night because as soon as I saw them in my head I WANTED a pair for myself! These would be just perfect for Summer! Must make some...
And talking of shoes... I have to admit that this months orders have fair worn me out! I took on far too many and have a horrible feeling that if I leave the shop open as planned I shall get swamped, never to surface again... We shall see. I think in order to preserve what little sanity I have I may set a limit and see what happens once I open. I count myself very lucky that I am getting any orders at the moment. If Radio 4 is anything to go by the world is in financial meltdown and no one will ever spend a single penny ever again! Talk about doom and gloom mongering. What people need are fairy shoes to cheer themselves up and to lift their spirits!!!! Maybe I should email Radio 4 next week and let them know this! Could I keep up with the orders that this course of action would undoubtedly generate once the secret got out???
Best to keep a low profile... 
Maybe I wont email them after all...


And so we end on a picture from the Fairysteps workshop...

Next week will see the January orders completed, photographed, packed and sent on their way. February first will see the next orders come in... I shall open the shop in the morning after my third cup of tea! But I wont be starting the Feb orders till Ive made a smidge of stock for the Etsy shop. Shelves are emptying and need re filling! Plus I havent made a CLEMMIE bag for sometime and her pattern is feeling ever so lonely! Im pining to make more purses and pen cases, not to mention Ive these stock shoes to finish...

Lots of social events happening next week too. And we start working on the spare room next week for Littlest. Theres a wall to cut out and panel, a window to line, the radiator to move and lots of painting to do... and maybe I should start another blanket for in there?

Im off to light the sitting room fire... its freezing!

  1. Ren, I'm so pleased that you are busy. I think a lot of people have woken up to the fact that when they do spend, they want something special. Love the idea of an open back, but worry that you are planning to take on too much. Take care Mary
