A brief email to my customers drawing their attention to Townmouse's snuggly warm flannel pyjamas has caused an avalanche of orders.
This lovely French laundry basket is big enough to handle all the ironing for our family of six. But yesterday it functioned as my outbox.
My gorgeous seamstress and I spent three hours in the studio yesterday afternoon madly personalising, pressing and packaging pyjamas. That's about 40 of the 100 or so pairs I need to get out to customers. Just a little added pressure during school holidays. Amongst all that there have been trips to the public pool with 6 children, play dates, movie dates, sleepovers. Wow, have we been busy.
And Adelaide has made a new friend. She's found Basil; MY softie, who usually hangs out with me in my studio. Basil came from Fiona of Hop Skip Jump fame.
Hop Skip Jump is the first craft blog I fell in love with and it's still a fave. You can buy patterns for Fiona's divine softies. Seeing Adelaide bond with Basil makes me want to find the time to make her a Rufus Dog, so that we can each have our own.
