It’s all suddenly got a bit hectic around here. Some of you lovely readers pre-ordered Mr Foxes, so I’ve finished and packed a couple more of those up (more on that later) and yesterday I sent this package on it’s way
to the Saint Patrick’s Trian Visitor Complex in Armagh. As most of you know, I keep dodging the wholesale question, mainly because there is not enough profit for me to sell at wholesale prices with my current designs and fabrics. It’s high on my list to correct, however Joy kindly offered me a deal that works within my budget and earlier this year I sent off some Linen Cats and Lavender Bags; the above is a re-order, which I am thrilled about.
The garden is taking up a lot of time as I try to keep up with the produce. Above are sloes (they ripen very early down here) destined for sloe gin to keep our supplies up
and the cutting patch is also in full flow. Today, I have been picking flowers for the house for a garden party tomorrow (M’s B-Day) and I’ve spent a huge amount of this week cleaning and tidying in preparation. I should take photos as the house hasn’t looked so clean.
Quite a few people have asked and about the Foxes and the Tweed Bunny purses. Yes, there will be Tweed Bunny purses in the shop, I haven’t made them yet but they are likely to be available as a general shop update in mid/late September (and will be about £14 + P&P). Also, the Foxes will eventually go into the shop and there will be a Mrs version. I am currently selling them at £30 plus P&P (which works out at about £3 as they need to be posted boxed) and I will be making the next batch early September at which time I will blog about them again, right now I have sold my first mini batch. If you would like to reserve one, please let me know. Oh and they are 38 cm high, just so you get an idea of size.
Finally, all my shops are now closed until the end of August as we are off on our summer jollies to ‘sunny’ Yorkshire. I have packed up a single box with hand sewing but will mostly be out and about. Best remember to pack the rain gear 😉
Sorry for a very disjointed post by I really am loosing the plot a little today. Here’s hoping for a slightly relaxing holiday, at least I’ll come back to a tidy house!
