First Custom Made Order


Another week and I am shattered, its not even the end of the week.
Highlights, no lets start with the low spot, only one, and its pretty low, no pretty is not the best word to describe this. A close friend of the family son only 25 years was murdered. Its kind of hard to accept when it hits so close to home. The family is comping remarkably well considering the circumstances

Now the highlights.
Its Carers week. and one of the project I manage support Carer who care for people who are experiencing mental health, these carers are unpaid carers, such as family members, neighbours or friends, and to celebrate the dedication and hard work of these Carers, I will be hosting a very ambitious event, which I am pleased to say is already booked, plus I will be attending several exhibition and conferences during the week hosted by other organisation, you know the drill, loads of preparations, presentation, leaflets printing, packing displays yah di yah di yah.

Secondly I have submitted a proposal for a new project this morning, fingers crossed it is accepted, it was accepted last year and I am hoping they will see the value of this new proposal, last year it regular massage and anxiety management session to carers and this proposal will be to provide musical entertainment to carers who never or very rarely get an opportunity to enjoy live music.

AND,AND
Always save the best till last


I have my first custom order on Etsy. Ooooh I AM SO EXCITED. Its for the GREEN APPLIQUE SKIRT, but the buyer has chosen different colours and has trusted me to choose them. This is the best bit about custom made, I get to indulge in what I like best, buying fabric. You know if fabric was was edible like chocolate, I would be in heaven, and I am pretty close to it now. Its an all wool skirt, Yeh I know its summer where you are, but I tend to forget that some of us are just starting our winter. I will be posting the completed skirt once I have finished it so watch this. Here is a sneak preview of the colour.
