I put in another order for stationery and paraphernalia, which arrived the other day. Since I was a kid I've had a big thing for nice paper goods, and I'm still exactly the same! Unfortunately with the rain at the moment I've been running the risk of my parcel deliveries sitting out and getting wet, which is what happened with this order. Luckily I got heaps of everything so it doesn't matter. Address labels, stickers and postcards (with discount codes! Not pictured!) I also got new business card bases now that I'm no longer on the blogspot url. More sewing cards to look forward to!

I keep a stack of pre-loaded bobbins on the top of my machine in the colours I use the most. Isn't this colour combination lovely?

I'll be making a series of shorter posts in the hope of keeping this blog more active. I've been really busy filling orders and drafting my summer samples so I don't have a lot of time to sit down and put together a big post.

Madeline cape in Robin's Egg with cream toggle patches (do those things have a name?) for my friend Katie, shown below. The cream was an experiment, but I'm not sure if I prefer it over using the same blue. They match the lining, though, and I like the way the blue, cream and wood of the toggles go together.

You can order a custom cape in this colourway, or just in the regular blue, on Foxes, or contact me directly by email.
