So that’s it! Done, dusted and not quite packed yet but hey…as good as.

Determined not to even consider H. Dawson (shop to be called The woolroom) this week I resolved to work Sunday and complete the order. The morning was spent listening to radio 3 ( I’m harbouring a growing aversion to ‘The Archers’) whilst sewing butterfly pin cushions and the remaining Loopy Leasachs.

Butterfly pin cushion bits, still need sewing together and lavender stuffing.

The afternoon was spent photographing all items, partly for the benefit of H. Dawson and partly because certain ones differ slightly from those in the catalogues and they need documenting.So, now that I have the pics I am going to introduce you to the fully made up, plumped up order, no longer in bits on my studio seat. Enjoy!

So, if any of you feel an undeniable urge to purchase any of these glorious things all you need to do is click on the picture and you’ll be transported to a the special buying place, or buy from ‘The woolroom’ once their site is up and running in a few weeks.

Bye for now

My favourite music: Bach cello suites for designing, Dolly parton for making (especially her album Little Sparrow), Teddy Thompson and loads of other stuff!

  1. Wow, Sarah! I’m amazed by the amount of work you’ve been able to get through whilst also keeping the quality up (something that’s hard to combine!). Your designs are so beautifully individual. Well done.

  2. Hi Sarah,
    Just to let you know that your blog is just fab, its my favourite site. Mary’s chook couch looks great.
