Sleep is for the weak!

Thanks to my darling daughter who decided that 4:15 was a lovely time to wake me up and tell me that she had lost her teddy, I have been up since about 4:45 this morning. Strangely enough I felt more wide awake than I have in weeks as I lay in bed trying to get back to sleep so I decided to get up and make the most of it.

It's all a bit busy around here at the moment, hence the blog silence. I am trying to get a few wholesale orders finished and posted before the postal strikes start on Thursday while also trying to get stock ready for the MISI makers event in Bristol in a few weeks and keep my shops ticking over with new stuff. I have got a few new and exciting products in the pipe-line so a few extra hours in the day are just what I need really!!

I added a few new things to my shops last week. After much hassling from various people who wanted a little bag but not as small as the 'Lucy', I have made 'Ruby'.

I actually love this bag; a simple shape but ideal for girls who maybe think they are too old for the 'Lucy'. It could be used as a little shopping bag, book bag or even a knitting project bag....yep that would be my Fyberspates sparkle socks from Woolfest *still* on the go down there!

The larger size of bag has also allowed me to use a the larger print material that I keep buying then getting home and realising that it is a too big print for a small bag so expect lots of new prints. I love the one above with owls, dogs, hedgehogs and mice on it.

It hasn't all been work around here. I have managed to get a bit of knitting done in the evenings. It is a secret project at the moment, unless you are on Ravelry, in which case you can see more here but here is a sneaky peak....

Well I ought to go and get on, it's almost a civilised hour now so maybe time to make packed lunches and get some breakfast.

So nice to know it's not just my children that insisit on getting up at silly O'clock in the morning!
Glad you made use of the time, I usually just stagger around, eyes half open, growling at everyone!!

My internal alarm usually wakes me up at 5am so we're in the same boat today. Great time management!

Willa said...

Good grief - 4.45am is obscene and not natural! Just wait til 7pm tonight when you will have fallen into a coma!

Great new bags.

I recognise that fabric! New bags are lovely and you have my sympathy for the early rising :)

oh my sympathies for the early morning. having a son that didn't sleep through the night until he was 4, i know exactly how hard it is to get back to sleep.
