in progress

Everything seems to be at loose ends right now. I had a shipment of zippers go missing off our front porch. My serger needle thread keeps breaking and the whole machine desperately needs to go to the spa. My iron keeps peeing water out from below the plate. All of this 3 weeks before Bazaar Bizarre. Figures, right?

1.5 yards

But I'm getting it all worked out despite the irksome setbacks.

Almost there

I was going to push to have a shop update done before Baz Biz, but with these speedbumps I'm going to delay it until December 8th. I'm making a metric tonne of box bags and the new mini box bags, so look for plenty of those. As always you can peek in at flickr to see more behind the scenes (or just catch up on kitteh photos.)

    I LOVE the OMG Mushrooms fabric, are you going to make box bags out of it??! Please?

  • Diana said:

    Good luck getting everything done! I am amazed how many things you get out of yard and a half.

    I love the little lady bugs!
    I think you should plan a little break in mid-December.

    Running yourself ragged! I am so impressed with your ability to roll with the punches…

    Oooh – for a minute there, I thought you were coming back to Whistler! Our Bizarre Bazaar is the 28th and 29th…. and I’m going a little crazy with my own preparations.

    Something must fail in order to keep you human.
    And I cannot wait until the box bags come out! :)

    Maybe they’ll return them when they realize it was zippers.There’s not much of a black market for them…
