A little explanation

So for those of you who don't know, last Summer I (Anna) opened a shop in Chichester. It was all a little bit of an accident (sometimes life just hands these things to you and you have to jump in with both feet and both eyes closed... I mean open.) but it came about that I found myself opening a craft shop in the front of the area that Button Company does all it's despatch etc from. And it kept mum happy because she could force me to put out all the buttons she likes so she could research what sells and why at somewhere other than shows. So the point of this little story is to somewhat explain the appearance of items other than buttons at the shows. I must confess to it being my fault that she now touts around fabrics, ribbons, sometimes paper, woolfelt, and other things besides. If she was going to make me put buttons in my shop (that was a REAL hardship, obviously!) then she could do me a little something in return. I am thinking about putting some of them on the button company website, although I couldn't nearly put them all on, it takes me long enough to get them on my shop website (that's The Eternal Maker, btw). At least the woolfelt, I am thinking, and some more ribbons and things. and maybe some selections of things that go with the new colour sections I've made. Hmmm... food for thought...

okay, so it's been a while - I've been busy!!
Actually, the truth of the matter is, I haven't been busy at all. I had my op at the beginning of July, and although afterwards I felt fine in body, my mind just seemed to go bleuughhh. And I had all this time off where I had to rest up and I thought to myself, goodo, I can get on with some of those jobs that I actually WANT to do that lugging around boxes and ordering paper and filing just get in the way of. Ah, I was young and foolish. I got out one project, started it, then my mind went bleuughh. I got out another project, started it, then my mind yet again went bleuughhh. Are you starting to see a pattern?
So where I thought I would be keeping busy with all these lovely projects and then I could show you them and say ooohh look at me aren't I clever I have nothing to show for my endeavours. Although I do have a lot of ideas which I may be able to get around to when I am back in the swing of things. (By which I mean, filing, lugginh around boxes etc...)
The plus side of things is that I have had time to think about the new range I need to get ready for next season. I think it's time to step up a gear, I don't know about you but I am FED UP with the same old same old. Buttons, you know, don't need to all look the same. Also brilliantly, my new dye shop was built while I was off, and oh she's a beaut. 5 little dye pots all in a row. Before I was dealing with mainly one but sometimes two. 5!!!! Hurrah.
So that's all I have to say for now, I am going to go and try and finish some of those projects, I am thinking up some patterns I am going to try and put as free downloads on here and the website... I'll let you know when I get around to it.
