(Special orders SOLD)

I'm still sewing along and the totes and purses are 
leaving almost as quickly.
One of the benefits of this 50 drawer apothecary in the hall
is I have 50 knobs to hang stuff from, which I do.
As each piece is completed it is hung here
temporarily until I can photograph 
and then put into the shop.

Then someone stops by, and a few more disappear
out the front door, and so far none have made it to the shop,
or been photographed properly.
I had to snap this blurry one seconds before 4 more departed.
I am thrilled.
The coffers need filling and it's always fun to see
someone you know enjoy something you've made.
I'm sewing up a batch of totes today in wonderful linens.
No better place for me to be than hibernated from the heat
in my studio at the top of the stairs.
I hope your day is lovely.

Sue (Someones Mom) said... how wonderful for you that you have hit upon something that people enjoy. I keep thinking that will happen to me one of these days...of course, I don't sew...I'd have to bake it!

Kathy said...

Love the bags and congratulations on the success! Sounds like a perfect way to beat the heat and feel productive at the same time.

Suzanne, Your sewing machine must be smoking hot, what with all the sewing. :):) The one with the owl, this is funny, I just visit Hot Market Style, they had some orange/rust colors and some owls..made me think 70's. Smiles, Susie

Love 'em all. And I really like how you combine such different fabrics and make them all different - something for everyone. I can understand how the challenge is to have any to put in he shop, but what a wonderful problem to have!
Smashing success Z!

Adorable!!! LOVE the totes! Glad they are flying out the door too! Stay cool. It's hard to do this time of year.

Those totes are fantastic - do I just go to your shop (if they make it there) to order one? Have a friend who would love one of those... I am really enjoying "The Newsroom". Don't watch True Blood, but have friends who are addicted to it.

I didn't get the rudeness memo either, but it seems a lot of people did and I seem to run into them everyday. Hmmmmph. Ann

Kit said...

These are awesome! I just had to catch up on all your posts. I have spent too much time in the yard and not enough time checking in. Hope you are doing great! :) Kit

I haven't been to visit for a while, but I'm glad I stopped by to see these great bags. I talk about doing things like that, so it's inspirational to come across someone who just does it...good for you!
