I feel like I’ve been doing a fair bit of gadding about on Fridays lately – and will be next week too – so today I’m having a day at home (mostly) in my studio. Here’s what I’m up to:
- Making further protoypes of my March craft. Today I’m working on a green toile shoulder bag, new notebooks and washbags out of a great apple fabric I’ve found. My new system of working means having a small group of monthly projects, then sending one of each type off to the photographer while I’m making the rest of each product at home. I’m aiming to send a newsletter to my Emma Makes newsletter group around the beginning of each month announcing new products. If you like, join my newsletter group.
- I have a notebook commission that is for a girl’s wedding guest book that I need to make
- Putting together a couple of parcels to send to friends, and
- Finishing my book – I have about two stories left in Pip Adam’s Everything We Hoped For, which I bought with my NZ Book Month $5-off voucher.
I also have the make the dinner, which is my job each Friday.
