...and the new shop will be up very, very soon!  So here is a little sneak peak of what will be available.  You can see more here.

back in the land of the living

It has been very, very busy around here, therefore, no blogging.  Getting ready for the UniqueSF show was a lot-lot-lot of work.  But, I did it.  And I had a great time.  It was, I would have to say, a success.  One of my bags was even featured in the Unique ad they ran in the SF Weekly.  So that felt pretty good.  I have enjoyed a couple weeks off with the wee ones playing in the beautiful California sun shine and now...back to work.  Starting on the 20th of this month you will be able to find my bags and some home furnishings at Loft1513 in Noe Valley, San Francisco.  And the new site with online shop will be up and running in a couple of weeks.  The online shop will be filled with lots of new designs and some brand new products which I am very happy with.  But, today, I am going to share some snap shots from around our home.  Enjoy the sunshine, wherever you are.

A new chair I have been working on for a while and a large stack of beautiful, over-sized floor pillows with leather handles - one of the new items that will be available in the shop.

another market bag - this one with a large leather fold over fringe to keep your goodies safe

and some big, free-form floor pillows made with naturally hand dyed fabric and kapok stuffing

For the past couple weeks I have been keeping busy out in the garden - which is looking especially pretty this year, I must say.  But now it is time to come in and start sewing again.  I have some new materials to play with - virgin wool for stuffing, lots of different hemp fabrics and even some raw linen - as in, not even washed linen.  Hours of fun!  I have a whole list of goodies I will be offering towards the end of June including lots of naturally hand dyed linen napkins, linen floor pillows, linen and woolen bags, tea towels and some other surprises.   I am also opening a new on-line shop, so keep your eyes open for that.  But for now, back outside because it is so very beautiful today.  Be well.  xoxo
