New Fabric!

Today my new fabric from Japan came in the mail! I am so excited because now I can make some new wallets. I'm really looking forward to that. They are pretty cute very kitschy prints, silly things like dogs and little trees. Just pretty and cute!
I will have a hard time selling them, because I will want to keep them all for myself.
Also, put the application in for the upcoming Sunday market in town and so I need to really get busy getting things made for it. I hope I'll have enough things to look like I am a real an proper business!
Oh and Joanne Rideout is interviewing me for Coast Business Journal! She's doing a story about home based businesses, this is very cool.
That's all for now!

Featured!

Hello and welcome back!
I just got a message yesterday from Jennifer who runs a blog about her favorite etsy finds, seems that she has chosen my ruffle black flower bag for her gift finds blog entry. You can go see it at the following address: http://jollyjennifersetsyblog.blogspot.com
Very cool! My first time!
Also been making a lot of wallets around here, pretty frequently actually. Off to make another one today.
I have some ideas for a new bag that I'm going to be working on in the next few days, I'll post a picture as soon as it's up.
Thanks for reading!

Interesting day

I had a pretty interesting day today, went to the dentist for my first ever cavity filling and it was quite the experience. They numbed my mouth on one side and it was the weirdest thing afterward, I couldn't smile right and I couldn't eat or drink without spilling on myself! It was actually pretty funny, but I would hate to have my face permanently like that.
I'm so happy that I have been making connections to people in different parts of the world, what a great feeling it is to know that there are people all over the world who will be carrying or using something that I made here in my little part of the world. Really neat!
I really want to work on getting some more things made for the shop, I have a lot of ideas, just have to work out when to do them all! I have a substitute teaching job tomorrow and then once I am home again I plan to get to work sewing. *Of course the kids might have something to say about that! *
