im just going to begin typing words and see where i end up...
 ive been back making ladies wrap dresses again. playing around with embroideries and placing deep pockets on an updated folksy style. im loving making these once more plus they are selling faster than i can make them, which helps, only thing is i cant seem to stop, and neither are the orders. ive never stuck at making something for so long before now. i usually move on very quickly.

 just between you and i, ladies have been waiting for me to make more of this wrap style
 as far back as october last year. eeek
and i didnt feel like making them. double eeek.
 well im so glad thats all changed around now and ive got my sewjo back in full swing.
can someone please come up with another word to replace sewjo?
ill be most grateful.

i got this red fabric overseas when i was in a holiday mood. can you tell?
its not my usual type of print is it...

realising that mexicana is in trend right now im going to part with some much-coveted-by-me embroideries
for some dresses, however ive been saying that for about a month and have yet to cut one up.

this was one that sold before id finished making it. boy thats a terrible blurry shot (sorry).
the whole peter pan collar thing is not me, but ill now happily make them for others. only not joyfully or gleefully.
i had been fighting against doing this type of doiley placement for so long, but ill concede and give you ladies what you want. give me the folksy vibe over twee anyday.

this shot is from a day of making on instagram.

join me on there as smallforestshop if you like :)
see... im even doing smiley faces in here now because of its influence!

catch you!

hello people who have been waiting for me to get sorted, (waves)
and a welcome hello to a smattering of new followers (jumping and waving)
here i am awake in the middle of the night with possibly too much on my mind, even for me,
 so have finally updated the fabric sample page. well... who would have thought hey? definitely not me thats for sure.
this has been needing serious attention let me tell you, but its been so sooo long that ive forgotten alot of blog basics. like how to set one up with certain links in place as a page attachment, like i said.
the basics. 
which makes me get more annoyed with myself for not keeping up with this space. but it couldnt be helped with all the upheaval of this last year. were still not quite settled in tot his new place so when you see me homemaking and rearranging its my attempt to ground myself and feel nestled. especially when im in the garden which is my happy place right now. the mr's too!
its time to get back on track and, as always, with the changing of seasons its easier to get back into the swing of things and breathe fresh new life into something neglected.
 so here is the link for those of you who would like to see whats in my stash right now.
and ive just heard the first kookaburra for the day so should go back to bed while i can.
mum and i have a girly day planned around appointments so you just might see some pictures of what we get up to...
