i realised i'd better write something here when even my mom had to call and see if i was alive after checking my non-updated blog. it's a busy, busy time for me and i haven't been online too much - i feel like any luxurious moments spent surfing around should really put towards sewing right now. i'm feeling fairly on top of my market stuff, thanks to my husband putting in some extra baby wrangling time, but i need to do a little stocktake and see where i'm actually at. i possibly may have bitten off more than i can chew but i am determined to buy us a shmancy, comfy king sized bed for christmas and would like a tidy sum leftover for some onegirl projects i have up my sleeve for next year. it's all about goals, people...
and so i don't have to feel guilty, let's make this a business post:
i've wanted to design a simple christmas stocking for years now and all these markets have spurred me on. classic, natural linen with a festive patchwork border and personalised applique, these are a good size for stuffing with little goodies and to be used for years to come. i've popped a listing in my etsy shop for preorders - you order one with your initial of choice and i will make it up and send it out to you no later than december 1st so that it arrives in plenty of time for christmas eve. i don't know how many preorders i'm going to take yet, it will depend how many i get from the markets so if you're keen, head over there and place your order now!
ps. sorry the photos aren't great, it's been a rainy, grey week in old melbourne town.
