I didn’t realise how busy life after being made redundant would be. This week has been particularly manic – volunteering as a TA, business start up workshops, college, job searching, interview preparation, crafting and, of course, being mummy.
I have finished Joseph’s keepsake quilt after a good few evenings working on it. The choosing garments, arranging and cutting process took as long as it did to put it together. It’s not easy choosing your favourite things! The majority of the stitching has been done by machine but to get the best finish I hand stitched the binding which took a long time but was worth it.
So, now I’m onto the planning stages of officially making a go of a little business. Crafty Crowe will be specialising in keepsake cushions, quilts in two sizes and comforters to start. It’s time to get my figures sorted, produce a small portfolio of work and start promoting myself.
Cushion commissions are being taken now, other items will follow. A 35x55cm cushion with patchwork front and polka dot border and back, including cushion pad, costs £25 excluding P&P. Please get in touch via my contact form if you have any questions x
