Pins and Needles
As much as I would love to say I love what I do all the time, I'm always in tears at the end of every production; and feel I never want to do another one ever again. But something possesses me every single time - and then I get excited to do another collection. It has been inspiring receiving lovely messages from happy customers; thank you for your compliments - its a reason to keep going. It's encouraging getting recognition for one's work - as it's such a hard, hard slog. In saying this, and in response to all the craft crisis talks: In defence of The Cottage & D&H ; the business of making and selling your handmade is not for the feint-hearted; so here's another kit idea - a little patchwork heart that can be mended when it get's worn out on the sleeve.
