Oh So Lovely

Tuesday, June 15, 2010

Isn't it amazing how wonderful you can feel after receiving a burst of inspiration? I'm most amazed at how I can sometimes be inspired in/by the most bizarre places/circumstances, but I truly love it when I'm hit with it!

The shop will be closing in a few weeks time for the summer and will re-open in Sept (perhaps a little sooner depending on when we return from our trip to Ottawa). I'm so so so beyond excited about the shop re-opening. I'm taking time to revamp my little shop during the closure. I plan to make sure that it is full of items and I will be introducing at least one new design, perhaps more (yay!). I'm truly excited.

I absolutely LOVE my new sewing area, it's what I needed and even better than when it was upstairs. I have my own little space and no one else goes back there, it's lovely.

We have enjoyed to lovely weather days in a row. Unfortunately the dark clouds are rolling in as I type. The rain will be good for the flower beds and the sun IS supposed to return tomorrow, so I won't complain too much.

I only just realized that I had not thought of what to get/make as a gift to give to my son's teacher! Ooops! I decided to make her a tote. Do you remember the totes I used to make? Here are a few pics:

I haven't made one in such a long time, so I'm looking forward to putting one together. Hope she loves it!

Okay, must run now....what are you making for the kids teachers?



  1. Oh Julie, those totes are so sweet! I hadn't even thought about sewing up anything for the teachers...I may just have to get out all my fabric:) Thanks for the inspiration!

  2. Thanks so much! You know, this is where it all began! I saw a tote that I loved, and thought that I could make one on my own in the fabric I wanted. It took a while to perfect, but the totes pictured above were the first ones I made using designer fabric after finalizing the design. Now I very rarely make them. I tend to only make them to give as gifts (great diaper bag!).

  3. How exciting! Ia m dying to get into more sewing. Thanks for the inspiration!


Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a little note!
