Well, nearly…. Trade show set up is tomorrow morning, and my planned day off today has turned out to be a 14 hour preparation day – hence a very brief blog. I am all set though, and have some lovely new stock (no time for photos yet!). Many thanks are due to my lovely student Siobhan who has been helping me out in the scarf production factory. We learned two things – working with silk dupion is great. Working with silk satin is not. Never again.
We also made – refurbished- this cabinet. Hard to imagine now, but it was scratched old brown varnish and now it’s all lovely. Grey paint from Ecos and wallpaper from Laura Ashley. Isn’t it lovely? I’m so pleased. It doesn’t hold up to close inspection but looks pretty good from a distance!
This will be storing all my paperwork etc for the show. I’m excited to see how it will all look. Photos as soon as I get a chance after the show.
