a small tangent

This past month plus has put me into major production mode around here. It seems as if all of my wholesale orders came one right after the other without much room to breath. On Halloween I delivered the last batch of goods to a local store and then set my eyes on filling the Etsy shop for the holiday season. It feels good to keep the momentum up and at the same time try to be intentional about making the time for family and friends.

On Monday Miss. A was with her Pa all day and I had a list of things I wanted to work on for the shop. Well of course as is always the case I got a bit distracted by a new idea and had to play around with it for a bit. The end result was so much to my liking that I spent the better part of the afternoon sewing and getting Daniel to both photograph and then model for some shots. It was a beautiful day and so we were able to actually get some outdoor shots. The results of my distraction are what I call the Loop Scarf. They are a short scarflette that wraps around the neck and is fastened through a loop sewn on the back.

I was having so much fun playing around with different wools and fabrics that I ended up staying up late that evening just to get some of the other things on my list done. I currently have a few scarves in the shop and will be adding some coffee cozies soon along with a few other items.

For now I need to get a few more loads of laundry done before Daniel and I head off to a long weekend on San Francisco.
