My Sewing Week



Hope you’re enjoying your weekend! I’m just saying a quick hello before I get back to my sewing machine.  Trying to think what’s been happening…life seems to be speeding by in a bit of a blur just now. There’s been lots of sewing…more cats & kittens. Kevin (in the middle) found a new home the same day he went in my Etsy shop, which was very exciting! The customer asked me to write a few notes about him on a card for her daughter, which I thought was a nice idea…think I’m going to start doing that from now on, with all the creatures I sell through my online shops. It also got me thinking about where the things I make go to…I always enjoy hearing about who owns them now and what they use them for – completing their story in a way and it makes my work more meaningful, knowing that there’s a purpose other than fulfilling my creative whims!

So I thought I might make a customer photo gallery for the website. If you are the new owner of  anything I’ve made it would be great to see it either with you or in its new home!

In other news, I’ve ordered some greetings cards with images of my cats and other creatures on. They should arrive sometime this week and I can’t wait to see what they’ll be like…slightly apprehensive too.

My sewing paraphernalia and I have migrated to the living room, to be beside the warmth of the fire, until our central heating is fixed. It’s nice and cosy. I can also watch Murder She Wrote, while I sew…which is fun.

One last thing before I go – there’s still plenty time to win an owl purse over on my facebook page!

  1. Your temporary sewing room looks so cosy!

    It’s a good idea to write note cards to go with your cats – makes them rounded personalities.

  2. What adorable cats!

    Murder she wrote (and anything else on alibi) is my guilty crafting watching too :)

  3. I love your sewing-machine table! – Well, half table, half gigantic tomes. Necessity is certainly the mother of invention!

  4. Thanks Eirlys! Building up the height of the machine with books has been the best way I’ve found so far of preventing the pain I was getting in my back and shoulders, from crouching over while sewing. It’s made a huge difference…wish I’d thought of it sooner!
