    Next week I'm going to get the sewing machine out and get lots of Pirate Pixie Crew bunting made.

    I'm waiting on 2 deliveries of wool so I can start some commission orders of hats.

    So what have you been working on?

    I've been making Christmas cards. In previous years I made lots and I didn't think I'd have time this year, and then I came up with a design I could do quickly and easily with Aiken involved, so I've done lots. I'd post a picture, but I want to send them to one or two people on here first.

    Been on a gem-chip jewellery rampage after PTM's raggydoll had to come to a halt for the sewing machine's service. The tension button kept unreeling and making the stitch loop up at the back of the fabric, so making things was a bit of an uphill struggle. Working great now, though, so I should be able to get up to date pretty quickly now.

    I look forward to seeing all the promised photos.

    I've spent the day listing on artfire again. I'm hoping the traffic on the site picks up soon.

    How are all you sellers on MISI doing? Are you getting traffic?

    Wow, look at all these gorgeous things!
    I haven't made anything, though I have been very slowly sewing some appliques onto a skirt I made a year or so ago.
