Thanks mum...

...with so many orders on the go I had to call on my mum for some help.

She packed her bags and hit the road for the 3 hour journey South, so that she could be here for the weekend to make sure that I had some food to eat, clean clothes to wear and also make sure that I didn't neglect my baby, while I sit at my sewing machine and sew and sew and sew.

I even put her to work, stamping names on swing tags and ironing endless strings of bias binding...

I love my mum.

When I am making dresses, the first thing I do is make the swing tags... I like to know who's dress belongs to whom as I am sewing. I like to imagine that I know where each dress is going, and it makes me happy, rather than sad, to be cutting up my precious fabrics.

I sent off a large number of custom dresses last week, and I am holding my breathe with excitement, waiting to hear back from hopefully very happy customers!

I also bought a new electric toothbrush today, I had forgotten how much I love brushing my teethe...

Well I am off to bed, early start in the morning.

I hope you are well and happy, wherever you are in the world!
