In The Shop: December 2015

The Holiday Rush is no joke for a small business.  I worked my tail off up until long past when I cut off orders.  But I'm so lucky to have ended 2015 with so many new clients and return customers.  This isn't even including the several items I customized for family christmas gifts that I forgot to photograph because I was just glad I got them finished in time!  Love this work I do!

I always feel like this isn't much but it was a lot last month.  There were a lot of little sewing projects mixed in too, lots of mending for people.  But I enjoy it all! Visit the shop for more information at
