The 'theme' for this month is Walking in a Winter Wonderland which to me mean means something seriously cosy and snuggly. Instagram has been full of handmade jumpers, sweatshirts and jumper-dresses so what could be better than sending a box of quilted knit fabric and fleece backed sweatshirt fabric. Perfect.
We're getting all festive around these parts! I know, it's only the beginning of November but if John Lewis have released their Christmas advert it's officially ok to start getting excited. Unless you go by the Coke advert in which case I believe you still have a bit of time to go!
I've had some really lovely feedback from customers who were as excited to receive their boxes as I was to pack them up and ship them off. A few people have already made some lovely items with the contents of their boxes and posted them on Instagram, there may have been some squeals from me when I saw them. Don't forget if you post a picture on social media to tag me in the comments and also to use #sewhayleyjanemakes so that I can see everything.
When I finally decided that the first box was going to be released in October, there was really only one theme it could be in my mind. If you're on any form of social media you can't have failed to notice how excited everyone gets at the arrival of Autumn. The colours, the snuggly jumpers and socks, twinkly lights and pumpkin spice everywhere. This might be a good time to admit, between you and me, I really don't like pumpkin spice latte's. I know... terrible! But I do love everything else to do with this season.
Hello Luke Cage!! Anyone else watching it? We may have been counting down the days until it came out, especially after getting into Daredevil earlier this year! I may have mentioned in an early blog post that I have become a bit of a Marvel geek. The movies are great but the TV shows are so much better. They are darker and grittier and I love that you really get to know the characters and their back stories.
So last Wednesday we were finally able to open up subscriptions! Yay!! Oh my gosh I was so excited but also really very nervous that I was going to hear crickets. A lot of hard work has gone into getting this ready but I was preparing myself for it to take a while before anyone clicked over and joined in my little party.
