I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and New Year. We sure did. It was party central here. Became a joke between my husband and I how long I could work on a bag before I dashed back into the kitchen to make cookies to give away or a "covered dish to share" or stir something for one of the 4 parties we had here at the house. Wow. I am happy it is just January and my slate is clean...well at least socially. I am dedicating myself to bags and Barbies and transforming Transformers. My little people are on Summer holiday here and it has been pretty HOT outside. OK, enough of this let's get down to brass tacks...
My New Year's Resolution.....
Limit My Bag orders a month and a good Yoga session in the morning.
I have to limit my bag orders for a couple reasons. I want to pour myself into each bag I make. I want to email back and forth with each of you and really get to know what you expect out of this bag I am making for you. But it is only me doing the sewing and emailing oh and blogging (which is really a dangerous time eraser). Due to where we are stationed and some of the odd laws I really can't hire anyone to help me out. So I get to stay small potatoes until I return to the states, then I will branch out. Hopefully my new plan of less bags a month will really cut down on wait time. That will really make me happy and you too (I hope). Most of the feedback I get is that the ladies I sew for don't mind the wait, but I do.
I am working on some new designs....a very exciting Clutch, which I will be making for some of my wonderfully patient ladies to field for me. I can't tell you how much I LOVE sewing for you all. I am thrilled that you enjoy my art. My New website should also be up sometime soon. Marnie and I have been working hard on it too.
I am also thinking of the next easiest bag I make so I can do a tutorial. Another blogging lady has given me pointers on how to make them in an easier manner...so it shouldn't be 10 separate posts that are hard to find again. Just one, clearly labeled. I guess that is about it for now...The boys are up, so off to make breakfast.
Happy New Year!
