Slowly, ever so slowly...

This seems to be the pace everything is going at right now.

Time is slipping through our fingers as we fight against the impending 'Holiday' season... it is always this way, yet, it always takes me by surprise. Always, always...

We are organised and scheduled and pencilled in to the nth degree, but spanners are always thrown in the works...days become rushed and hectic and last minute even with the best of intentions, and the very best of planning. All one can really do in these situations is stop, when you can, when it's all done and you are exhausted and stressed to the max, and have a cup of tea and a slice of something sweet - make time for a kiss and a snuggle, even... to help put things into perspective a little.

Today was a hectic one. Very.

BUT, we feel one major step closer to our launch. The designs for our range of screen printed tea-towels are finally finalised and ready for printing... I am so. very. excited.

I am over the moon with our designs and cannot wait to see them in the flesh!! I am a true tea-towel gal, so to be printing our own just fills me with glee.

Glee that manages to shine through the sore backs {sciatica for my poor Mister Bell} all round, threatening colds and huffy post office workers... just ;)

The last of our textiles arrived last week too. Another glee-filled moment to add to the list! Looking forward to cutting and sewing this stack!!

...but, back in the jewellery workshop tonight as we prepare a big collection of work for a Craft Show we have lined up in Northern Ireland {details to follow!}...I am starting work on all the new pieces for the Christmas shop :)

Time is not on our side, but I think, as long as we are on each others - that is really all that matters.


Who's with me on that?

xo to all.

Good luck!

Yeah, I totally get you on the where the hell is the time going feeling.

Trish said...

Oh, I'm so excited to see all the wonderful creations!

And yes indeed, I wholeheartedly agree with your last statement ;)

Always on your side, always.....
The hard work clearly pays off. Just to see these amazingly beautiful textiles is so exciting. I can't wait to see the finished tea towels. That takes care of a good number of Christmas presents. What a lovely gift idea, like the Scandinavians - take a tea towel when going for dinner, instead of chocolates.... great idea!
Also really looking forward to the beautiful homeware range - can hardly wait! xx

Make time for a cup of tea and slice of something sweet - best advice I've heard in years...

Kettle's going on - fancy a brew?
