Feeling topsy turvy….

everything feels a bit upside down and inside out at the moment!

I’m not sure why but I don’t seem to able to stick to one project at the time – is it because there is so much to do I wonder?

It could also be that the shop is starting to fill up with Christmas fabrics and I have started to make samples of the advent calendars…Makower Advent Stockings

We will be having a sale on Saturday 7th July to make room for all this gorgeous Christmas fabric – so put the date in your diary, there will be lots of bargains.

My head is full of ideas for quilt designs but I don’t seem to have time to get anything down on paper, never mind sew anything.

At home everything is in a jumble because we’re having a new hall floor laid, which means we need to redecorate, don’t we! I say we it’s all fallen to Glen to do, all I had to do was choose the colours (such hardship!) Why is it that when you decorate one area it makes everywhere else messy too? I’m not the tidiest of person at the best of times but there seems to be even more stuff everywhere – I know it will be OK when it’s all done but at the moment it’s not helping!

I think I just need to concentrate on one thing at a time and stay calm, but sometimes it easier said than done, isn’t it?

Wishing you a calm and fulfilling time,                                                                                             Jane x

Coach Parties welcome…

anyone who knows me, knows that I rarely say ‘no’. This can lead to all kinds of adventure (and stress!). So when a lady got in touch with me at the beginning of the year and asked if their sewing group could come and visit, I of course said ‘yes’. I didn’t think how 30 ladies would fit into the shop, I moved everything around upstairs, made some cupcakes and asked Mum & Glen for a helping hand and the ladies came, and had a lovely time, shopping and chatting.

So, I was delighted, when Joyce got in touch again and asked if the ‘Sewing Divas’ could come again. I made mince pies & shortbread this time, and once again moved the tables around in the workshop upstairs.

It’s a squeeze, if you’ve been to my shop you will know that it’s not very big (usually six people find it difficult to move around!), but these ladies enjoyed themselves and with good humour and patience had a great time, browsing the fabrics, enjoying some retail therapy, chatting and drinking tea (even sitting outside).

They left with happy smiles and promises to see me again next year.

Thank you ladies for choosing my shop and making a Monday morning full of fun.

So now I can say ‘Coach parties welcome’ – so if your sewing group fancies a day out, you know where to come  🙂
