Wow – it has been a busy month or two! I thought I’d let you all know I am still here and still sewing and designing softies – but I have also been very busy with other things too. As a family we made some big decisions at the start of this year – which include extending our house! So we have been busy getting plans approved, organising builders and tradesman and sourcing materials.
I have also started my Softie Toy Making Classes with the grade 6′s at school this term. So once a week (for the next 6 weeks) I spend the morning with them designing and sewing softie toys. I’ll share some photos and a bit of an update about this class at the end of the term (you can read about what we do during these classes in my blog post from last year)
We also have our local Field Days next week – and the schools do all the catering for this event. So we will be very busy next week setting up and then preparing and cooking food out at the field days.
I am also starting an online photography course next week (through Click, Love, Grow) to improve my photography skills and marketing shots and step by step photos for my patterns.
There are a few other things happening behind the scenes too (sorry I can’t share any more about that) – but it’s all good!
I have been working on some new designs and patterns – and as soon as they are ready I’ll let you know. If you follow me on instagram you can see a little of what happens behind the scenes and some work in progress shots too. You can also follow me on Facebook - where I share links I like and I also spend some time on Pinterest. My patterns are all still available through Etsy & Craftsy too.
