Merry Little Christmas...

...a *new* range of fabric by Dashwood
 Four new fabrics AND an advent calendar panel to make a long lasting advent calendar
 Gingerbread men are always cute, even more so in a knitted jumper!
 Baubles - modern & retro all at the same time
 Birdhouses and robins
 ...and a whole host of cuteness in the village scene
If you love this cute range as much as me, then the advent calendar panel is a must :-)

Plans

I am a fan of to-do lists.
So much so I *sometimes* write a list of lists I need to write.
Even though that sounds a bit crackers,  it helps.
I do manage to do a lot...but I want to do a lot more...and sometimes that's all down to planning.
My ''new year'' planning seems to happen at the end of the tax year - when I can truly look back and reflect on how business has been and what was missing and what I could do better with.
It's not about money, more about the direction of business and where my hours go.
Top of the list this year was:  Do more sewing.   I miss it. 
I LOVE to sew, and I love to sew orders for you...and now, some of my planning has started to come to fruition, and THAT puts a happy smile on my face :-)

Vinyl Remnant Rolls


This photo was a happy accident!
I *had* piled all these remnant rolls up nice and neat and tried to tip the basket a bit to see them all better, and they all slipped and the basket fell and *TADAH* let's pretend I did this on purpose 🤣😆
Vinyl Remnant Rolls are available right now (they are all different sizes/prices so please click the link to see details)

a really rather BIG order

This *really-rather-ginormous* order of fabric felt took a lot of our attention today

What a fantastic selection - another customer is going to have a LOT of making fun once this lot lands

Glitter Remnants

I've updated our remnants section - and I have slowly started adding all our off cuts & remnant pieces .... we have a lot! My original plan was to list it all in one hit, but it takes aagggeeesss so it'll happen in dribs and drabs as time allows...right now there are new glitter rolls and offcut bags
