It’s been a while. Apologies. I’m crap (and very busy)
So, since I blogged last, I have been busy with plenty of custom orders. My pants (snarf) are proving to be very popular! I’ve also experimented with a new tying technique with some exciting (for me) results.
I’ve loved doing some custom dyed muslin squares, matching rainbow tee shirts for a whole family, and also some personal projects, dying bunting and a windbreaker for our family camping trips.
I’ve done my first boxer shorts, made my first upside down rainbow mistake, dyed some canvas shoes, and managed to turn a disaster rainbow tee shirt into something quite lovely!
I’ve also ordered a gazzilion flyers in the hope that I can persuade some lovely people to dole them out for me, business cards, and a little special something which I will save for my next blog post 😉
My biggest surprise? Well, when I left the railway after a 13 year career, I honestly didn’t think I would be working at a train station 6 weeks later, however Richard Branson, and the lovely people at Virgin Trains are taking a chance on small businesses, and letting us set up pop up shops at their stations! The lady who runs the scheme at Stockport contacted me yesterday to see if I would like to have a stall this Sunday. It’s a fabulous opportunity, and i’m really looking forward to showing my goods off to people in person. So I have a busy week ahead, sorting things out, and making sure I have enough stock to keep the commuters of Stockport happy.
Wish me luck!
