With the end of the year drawing to a close, there's been a little less focus on madly sewing stock, and a bit more time for creating special little pieces for special little people.
I've made this outfit for a lovely little girl's special day.
And this tiny dress-shirt for a 1st birthday / Christmas celebration.
And I've even managed to sew some JimJams for Bradley - it seems the more I sew, the less time I've had to make things for my ever-patient family, so this was a real joy.
Doing all this has been so good for me. It's been relaxing; and creative; and has helped me to remember what it is I love in life, and why we started this business in the first place.
Business for 2011 will recommence soon enough. With a fresh outlook for a new year, and a plan for making sure that personal-life and work-life complement - rather than compete with - each other.
But the next few weeks is going to be about catching up on sewing for my loved ones - my husband and child; and friends and family both near and far.
Oh, and I might even sneak in some sewing for myself!
