Back to Slack

Well hello strangers!
May I start by apologizing for such a long absence! It has been nearly 6 months since my last blog.
I have been far from idle though my bloggy friends.

Firstly I went quiet as I concentrated on producing a fabulous new bag design.
I hired a big beast of a machine, I cut, I planned, I sewed and I cried!
It seems that to produce a bag of the level I intended you need like actually training!
Who'd have thought it? Not I!

This failing, or set back landed me in a bit of a funk.
I adopted a little black raincloud that loomed close for the whole of January.
I then picked myself up and started to stock my bags in a gallery/shop near me, which went ok, but slowly slowly.
The problem was that it only covered a tiny bit of me, I needed something more solid, more, me.

It was around this time I was forced to look way way deep into my person, and at my stash and my sewing room and reach a new and productive phase.

After that process begin life speeded up, so much so it became a blur of empty shops, bank managers, business plans and grant applications.

Which brings me to where I am today.

Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to my shop, Margo
I have a twitter and a facebook account, I'd love to see you there.
Have a look, see if any of your wonderful things would look good in the shop, and we can chat about getting you stocked.
I hope your all well & now that everything is starting to calm down I may even get to read and even comment on your blogs again!
