Everything is sopping wet. To be honest I don’t mind, the dirt on the roads and pavements after the snow was really quite depressing and I’m happy it’s all getting washed away, plus it means I can hole up in the house, sewing and baking and pretending I can’t see all the mess and dust that I should be dealing with (I so need a cleaner).
I have lists both on paper and in my head of things I’d like to make, new products, things that never made it into the shop last year and new colour ways of firm favourites. I go to sleep each night with this list running through my head then I suddenly think of another thing to add, it never stops really, my head is very busy.
The big difference is I am under no pressure (other than my own) to do anything, I can make as much or as little as I like and I do prefer to work this way, especially after the madness of the end of last year.
For this reason I have a number of projects on the go, but most of the week I’ve been batching up new Lavender Owls. I ran out last Autumn but after rustling some up for the Saint Patrick’s Trian Visitor Complex I remembered how nice they are and how cheerful the colours and I felt in the mood for bright stripes, so here they are
listed on Folksy
but for now, not on my Linen Cat site as I’m busy creating a new one with a different hosting company which I hope to make live soon. Or not. It all depends on what I decide to do off the list next 🙂
