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.
