By the time you read this post I will most likely be knee deep in fabric and cardboard boxes getting them ready to post out next week, it's the most exciting yet tiring and nerve-wracking part of my job! But I love it... as I said, knee deep in fabric and pretties so what's not to love?!
Yep, gone are the days when Friday was the night for getting dressed up and hitting the town. I'll be honest with you I never have been a big party goer and I've certainly never been one to enjoy dancing in high heels all night. Much preferring to sit in a pub with a drink, good friends and lots of laughs.
I noticed that a lot of you signed up to my website but as yet, unless you subscribe to the packages you probably haven't heard very much from me, that is other than the same blog posts and website updates that anyone can see. But that is going to change this year.
I'm going to put all the blame on Christmas here, and that spending time with family and friends, going out and getting all the shopping done really was far more important. We'll forget the fact that I could have done it during those moments when I was sat on the sofa eating yet another mince pie watching the Lord of the Rings films.
Down on the south coast it's business as usual with our weather but I am keeping an eye on the news and hoping everyone on the east coast is safe and well. I think your best bet is to batten down the hatches, stick on Netflix and get your sewing machine out!
The theme for this box was inspired by the gorgeous Katie of Alba's Treats who got in touch with me about collaborating for one of the boxes. Well obviously I jumped at the chance! We discussed some ideas and decided on a postcard sized print with the phrase "Netflix and Sew", because really, that's what we all want to do!
If you follow any sewing Instagram accounts you will probably have noticed a hashtag that has been doing the rounds the last week or so, you might even have done it yourself! #2017makenine came into being thanks to Rochelle New who decided to post her plans for 2017 and encouraged others to do the same. It has been so inspiring to see what everyone is planning to sew over the coming months so I wanted to get in on the action!
