Apologies for being so quiet over the past few weeks, but a LOT has been happening in my real life that has really cut down on my sewing, blogging and Facebook time.
Because of these changes, I’ve decided to cut down my range even more. In a nutshell, I will have to wind down the selling side of red & rosy over the next few months – the Blog will still be here and I am still planning on providing tutorials and blogging about “stuff” (my exciting new adventure hopefully!). On the positive side I won’t have any of those annoying adverts you get on blogs either as there is absolutely no making money whatsoever for me.
The reason for this? My wonderful* husband has been offered (and accepted) a job in San Francisco! Honestly, I can’t even begin to explain to you how excited we are at this potential adventure. I say potential as nothing is certain until we have cleared US Immigration and set foot outside the Airport. Scary, but a gigantic adventure for the five of us.
But back to the changes! For the time being, I am concentrating on ready made products like the Kindle, ipad2 & phone cozy’s. This way I am not keeping people hanging and waiting for orders and nothing will be popped up for sale until it’s completed and ready to post. I’m not saying I’m never going back to making personalised items, as there is no guarantee that our Visa application will be successful, but for the time being as we are trying to get ourselves organised this is the most sensible way to proceed.
In the meantime, if your looking for a name banner you won’t go wrong with The Banner Boutique, Woolly Comforts or Heartfelt Handmade - all very lovely ladies who put their heart into their makes and never fail to surprise me with their beautiful work.
So that’s my news! I have a few tutorials that I’ll be publishing over the next few weeks. All the photographs are ready I just need to sit down and write out the steps, this time they are for bunting, a Peter Pan hat, a felt birthday badge and a Wreath dedicated to sewing!
In the meantime, if your looking for a simple tutorial you won’t go wrong with my Heart Hair Clip Tutorial.
Thanks for reading!
* the wonderful was added by my amazing husband when I asked him to sanity check this post for me, he thinks I didn’t notice!
