I’m back in the studio! Or rather, we’re back in the studio. I knew that we’d find a way of making it work if we kept tweaking. My shop has been packed away and I’m left with an amazing work and play space for Honor and I.

I’ve booked a little stall at the New Rags Market on Saturday 30th July in the hope that I can produce enough to fill it. A challenge that I’m more than happy to take on.

So progress is steady with lots of little breaks for cuddles, games, dancing and book reading. Honor is actually incredibly helpful in the studio. We sorted through buttons together yesterday. She picked them up one by one, studied them in detail, opened my hand and placed the button in it. She seemed so content. I am extremely thankful that she’s in our life.

  1. My kids love buttons too. And pins. My two year old son will move pins from one pincushion to another, and my four year old daughter loves to pin fabric upon fabric. I lower my expectations of how much sewing I can do – and we’re all happy! Good luck with your stall.

  2. How lovely for both of you …hope it all goes well xx

  3. I can see a future mother/daughter business relationship developing here Alison!!!!

    It’s such a special time for you both. Honor is just soaking up everything you’re showing her – how lovely.

    Best wishes for the ‘New Rags’ market – let us know how it goes.

    Have a great week,

    Shane :))

  5. Hi Karen. Thank you for your comment. Isn’t it great how little ones are satisfied with simple pleasures like buttons and pins. I’m sure that most of us have memories of sifting through Grandmas’s button tin. Thank you for the good luck wishes. I’m looking forward to getting back out there!

  6. Thank you Lynn. I’ll let you know how the market goes. Must remember to take my camera with me!

  7. Ooo Shane, a mother and daughter business – what a lovely thought that is!
    Yes, I’ll be sure to let you know how it all goes a week on Saturday. 🙂

  8. Me too oddly enough Nikki! 🙂

  9. Beautiful baby hands, a lovely photo Alison.
