A Looongg Weekend

This Bank Holiday weekend has been Fab!
We took part in a Classic Car Show, had a 1 night mini break  (with lots of lovely food) had a relaxing day in the garden, complete with BBQ & wine and today we did *a little* work - making Christmas Kits on the hottest day in quite some time! 
I've also been putting some new dies through the test and will have something new to show you very soon indeed :-)

Merry Little Christmas...

...a *new* range of fabric by Dashwood
 Four new fabrics AND an advent calendar panel to make a long lasting advent calendar
 Gingerbread men are always cute, even more so in a knitted jumper!
 Baubles - modern & retro all at the same time
 Birdhouses and robins
 ...and a whole host of cuteness in the village scene
If you love this cute range as much as me, then the advent calendar panel is a must :-)

Plans

I am a fan of to-do lists.
So much so I *sometimes* write a list of lists I need to write.
Even though that sounds a bit crackers,  it helps.
I do manage to do a lot...but I want to do a lot more...and sometimes that's all down to planning.
My ''new year'' planning seems to happen at the end of the tax year - when I can truly look back and reflect on how business has been and what was missing and what I could do better with.
It's not about money, more about the direction of business and where my hours go.
Top of the list this year was:  Do more sewing.   I miss it. 
I LOVE to sew, and I love to sew orders for you...and now, some of my planning has started to come to fruition, and THAT puts a happy smile on my face :-)
