new work

we have been super busy this past week since we got an order from the wonderful ladies at SupermarketSarah who currently have a concession in Selfridges . . . so we are working like mad getting the order ready . . . we can't contain our excitement at actually being in Selfridges, London!

Also started work (although it has been put to one side for obvious reasons!) on a new blanket, thanks to the lovely pattern by Lucy at Attic 24 - granny stripes are coming along!!

All is good and wonderful in the world today - even though it is raining and grey outside. Just a whole day of sewing ahead of me and i'm loving the thought of it!!
