I am still working out so much about the blog world. I spent the week making bags, photographing them and posting them. Thank you to those who have followed me through the process and purchased. I was overwhelmed with the speed of your response! Since I am a one-person operation and the sewing times are sporadic, there is no set time for new work and no way, other than the blog, to show you. Sometimes, people write to me and ask me how they go about buying a bag. I don’t do shows and I don’t advertise. Once a year I open my house for a Christmas sale. But really, the best way is to check in here once in a while and see what is available in the on-line store–or email me with a request. All the bags posted this week are in the mail and off to new owners. 🙂
I haven’t been working too much on the rug, but will have more time in the next few days. Learning lots about hooking text. Although I traced the font, I find the actual hooking is more like handwriting. Each letter, although related to its cohorts, is slightly different. And then there is the world of meaning behind the quotation. Time to think about that as I hook. The templates you see scattered there will form the design of the middle of the rug. Right now I am thinking they will be in a spiral–but that will develop as I hook the text at either end.
Thank you for your support and have a great weekend, all of you. The weather here in southern Ontario is spectacular–even though there is that bittersweet touch of fall in the air.
