As the twelve days of Christmas come to an end and the new year unfolds, I feel rejuvenated and ready for the challenges that lie ahead. I have plans to open a shop on my website this year so watch this space! The craft room is back to normal, a working space free of all the pre-Christmas clutter and orders waiting to be collected or posted. I thank clients old and new for choosing Mamas Mercantile and hope you will continue to do so.
My husband is still getting on with his orders, he is working on a farm layout complete with barn and stables at the moment. He has a chest of drawers to give a makeover, a shabby chic style with decoupage drawers using Cath Kidston cowboy wallpaper. Then its on to a new range of children's coat hangers ready for the craft fairs, again watch this space.
I have spent several hours in front of the stove perusing craft books and have come up with a plan for the new craft fair season. I intend to make rag dolls, clothes and bedding using a Cath Kidston pattern and some vintage style soft animals. The next stage is to sort out all the fabrics.
I have a new range of crochet cushions that I was working on before Christmas ready, I am now working on a baby shawl for a very soon to be new mum. I like to have a wool project going for these long winter nights. Keep safe in this unpredictable weather.
