Greetings cards

I'm feeling festive (well, a bit, I'm cold anyway) so I'm making more Christmas cards. The word 'Christmas' takes ages to cut-out so I'm trying to think of other seasonal messages and images. I ended up cutting-out designs more complicated than cutting out 'Christmas'.. always the way!

Pretty bags

Hello, I'm sewing bags today. Had to get up early to let the Bathstore man in with our new bathroom suite so I resisted the temptation to try and learn plumbing and started sewing bright and early. I have finished 3 that I started yesterday..

Missing sewing

I'm on my lunch hour. I'm back in London doing my freelance design and I can't wait to get back and north and do more sewing. A week of sitting in an office at a computer makes a nice change every now and again but it's also perfect for getting you in the mood for more sewing geekery!

I have new fabric too so keep an eye out for more little bags on Storeyshop very soon. Beca is going to make matching fabric boxes too. I have lots of ideas for new cards too and for other products.

Best get back to my work anyway but I'm going to upload pics to here on my new products in the making so keep an eye out.

The six monkeys before they left for America!

Tuesday, 16 October 2007

Good news

An order for 6 monkeys! I'm making new monkeys so I can leave all my existing Etsy listings in place. They're taking ages and my finger tips are sore but I'm nearly there and then they can be winging their way to Santa Monica. More international monkey orders too, another to the US and one to Singapore! More card orders too, I'm being kept busy.

Had a fab weekend chilling out, bathroom shopping and spending time with Dave's friends just along the road in Corbridge. I'm heading back down to London on saturday for a week freelancing back at Company. Looking forward to seeing everyone again and a nice break from sewing and card cutting.

Right I have to think of more exciting things to write in this blog! I'll get fellow Storeyshop 'Nice Things Maker', Beca, to add her 2p's worth too..

Back up north

I'm back at home up north after my trip down to Brighton to see my family last weekend and then London last week to do some freelance design at Company magazine. Nice to go back and see everyone but I've been looking forward to coming back and getting on with making things and promoting Storeyshop etc. (and seeing my boyfriend, Dave, and chinchilla, Seb, again!)

On my own today so going to make the most of it and get some new items made for the shop. I have a few half-finished monkeys to complete which I was sewing on my train journeys. I need to get myself in Christmas mode too to get some products ready for the festive season! Last week I was working on the Christmas issue of Company magazine so that's helped get me in the mood!

Still feels very weird to be posting about myself and Storeyshop and maybe noone will even read them but, oh well! It's actually quite fun.

Ta ra. Have a nice weekend!
