Brand new in the shop are these lovely linen blend zipper pouches. I made them from the leftovers from the drawstring bags I made this summer. I sent several days making different prototypes and now have a couple of favorite sizes that I’ll continue to make in the future. Because these are made with scraps, size varies a bit to make the most of what I had. Most of them have only one available, but some have 2 or more. I also have a few more to finish up, but right now there’s a nice selection in the shop (KMS Handmade). When these lovely prints are gone I have some other ideas for zipper pouches that I’ll be rolling out over the next month, just in time for holiday gifts.
We had a busy end of summer when the smoke finally cleared out and we tried to fit in all the outdoor fun we missed during the worst of the smoky days. We hiked, picnicked and camped and it was wonderful. Then, I hurt my back doing some gardening and took a week off which meant that last week I was behind on everything and the house needed a major cleaning. I also had a busy week with appointments, meetings, and hosted my book club. Yesterday we celebrated my son’s 24th birthday which is actually tomorrow. Whew, it’s been crazy!
I am getting back to work on holiday goodies for the shop. I can’t wait to show you the new embroideries I’ve been working on!
