Second order of the year
Two orders in 1 week, the first the aprons shown on my last blog. Then an order from an old school friend (more years ago than I care to remember) for a Birthday card for a lady turned 105, how great is that. Plus a 30th wedding anniversary card and some change of address cards. The spec? Romany and Austria. I love to interpret what a customer is looking for, hopefully making a card or gift that cannot be found in any shop.
A Romany caravan with vintage wallpaper, straw hat with a teapot of flowers. Window embellished with cluney lace and opens to another Romany caravan parked up in a field.
Memory board effect with photos of Austria and a map. A beautiful country, have been myself to Kitzbuhel, St Anton, Vienna, Salzburg and Innsbruck to name a few. From the fabulous Hahnenkamm to Villa Trapp and Zell am See. Well worth a visit.
Have been working hard on Birthday and Christmas gifts and cards for 2015, however my embroidery machine has decided it no longer wants to read the USB sticks, consequently I have ground to a halt. Emailed Janome and hope I hear some good news tomorrow. Depressed now and feel like throwing my rattle out of the pram. Funny had been thinking of making myself some clothes perhaps now may be the time to stop myself climbing the walls.
On top of that our Sky box is playing up and will be replaced on Thursday, then the printer has decided not to play ball, another one ordered as quite old and done us well.
This blog is in conjunction with Handmade Monday and the lovely Vicky, do stop by the other blogs for a read of what everyone is up to.
Until next week
