Whiling away the hours

Today is the first day of Back to School. We were all up early (some more excited then others) but we managed to do everything in good time and what's more, without the usual mania and shouting that seems to accompany the school morning. And even the sun is shining! So a good start.

I've been eagerly anticipating the start of term, so that I can get down to some serious uninterrupted work. Let's face it, I have been on definite go slow during the school holidays, through no fault of my own, but it has left a huge backlog which really needs dealing with.

Today is the day to put all wrongs to right. I could be in my studio for 9 and not leave until 3. 6 whole hours.

Needless to say it is now 10am and I am not up there. Again, no fault of mine. I can't hear the door bell in the attic and I've been expecting 2 calls, both of whom said they'd be here for 9. One has been...I'm still waiting for the other.

I've caught up on all my emails etc (translated as Flickr, Twitter, Facebook...) and I'm still sitting here waiting, so I thought I'd show you a little Prints Charming embroidery I started yesterday evening. It's only in it's beginning stages. But it's such a lovely design to work with, I'm enjoying the calmly sitting down process of it all. And of course I was awake half the night with further developments of it...

Ok, customer number 2 has not turned up. Up I go. Hope you have a great day and hope I can report tomorrow that I am back on track and some Stockists are happy again with me.
(P.S. I should have can obviously buy and create your own little embroidery piece right here!)

You need to tell customers to ring your mobile when they arrive.That way you don't have to hang about!
Love the embroidery.I've got an old faded flour sack that I'm doing something similar to.I just pick it up every now and then when I need something that doesn't require much thought.
