Here are some of the drawstring project bags all ready to be labeled. Regulars will notice a few old fabrics that sold out of stock ages ago, a couple even years. I've had a clear out of fabric I was saving ;)
I haven't got as much stock as I would like to take to a show for a fair few reasons; I started making for it months ago, one for the shop, one for the show pile, as things were cut out and made then I got poorly and I had to pinch stock from the show pile for shop orders then I had a fair few large wholesale orders and I seemed to have plenty of time before it was the end of August - I had the whole summer holidays where I got lots of work done last year so I was convinced I would be able to make up. Of course I haven't.
The holidays have been a complete wash-out as far as work is concerned and also for the first time since J and L started school, I am feeling rubbish about their summer hols and almost looking forward to them going back in a fortnight. It seems that until I throw my hands up and say 'Please, take them out, entertain the kids,' M will quite happily leave me to look after children, work, run the house and anything else that needs doing while he plays with his new phone or spends a token hour working in the garden. I guess I assume everyone will use their initiative and see when they need to pick up some slack, maybe make a meal or put the washing out without being asked but it's not the case, it would seem.
Anyway, enough moaning. I have been making lots of Miya bags this week. In my head they are a pain to make so I will always avoid making them over other bags or needle rolls for stock but they are fab bags, I love them and I know they will go well because people keep asking me for more fabric options.
I haven't had any time to knit or crochet this week. I took a load of cotton with me when we went away at the weekend and only managed to make four squares for my blanket so we are up to 41 now. I might take them with me this weekend and see if I can make a few more!
Here is my progress so far...
