We are almost ready for the big move, new fabric has arrived in Grand Fanflower & Grand Hearts, new stock for the shop is arriving everyday as I have been searching and discovering beautiful things from around the world that are not yet available in little old Adelaide. Items that are full of life and well made and thoughtful.
Other more important milestones have come and gone ... Olive's first teeth, crawling.. and then a few weeks later the walking around furniture... and now the opening up of all the cupboards and emptying their contents. Even though I have been working super hard at the moment I have fortunately been doing it all from home and havn't missed a thing!
I also have another big project that is quickly coming to the end of it first stage (the stage where I do all the work for before it gets handed over for another team of talented people to work their magic).... I have been quietly working on this project for almost two years and can't wait to share it with you.... soon.
I'd love to say that it's all been a breeze and fake it all to look effortless but I just have to be real about it .... and say that my absence from this blog will not be forever ... I just have to get this project finished. .... Chris and well ..everyone in my family is probably a little sick of hearing that excuse ... but I promise, after the move to the new shop and my big project is handed over I will be FREEE (well maybe not free but certainly able to cope better with more of the simple things in life... like cooking a meal and playing in the park and blogging ... and sewing for the heck of it .... no deadline in sight.)
I'm even going to move my home office/studio over to Magill Road... no more work at home, I need to get a better work/life balance... and while working from home has been brillliant for most of the time, meaning I get lots done while the house is quiet and the girls are sleeping.... it also means I don't sleep terribly much myself. It's time to leave work at work ... I suppose when you enjoy your work, that is where it becomes confusing ... or maybe i'm just not disciplined enough to not go into my office at home when I should be relaxing?? I don't know ... but I'm going to try out the work at work thing and see how it goes.
see... two little teath, such a happy chappy!
