I'm thrilled you missed me :)


Hi there lovely people! After spending these past few months ordering furniture, then flipping it around the house a hundred times to fixing the plumbing and windows, phew! I finally feel settled into the house..so much so that it's now time to buy new curtains psst..
I hope the Mister isn't reading this, I've pretty much driven him up the wall these past few months with my ever changing home decor plans ;-)
Anyone looking for a new house, plumber, electrician, packers and movers, cleaners, furniture, a phone line or anything to do with setting up a new home can drop me a line, I have a treasure of information that you aren't even aware of :)  I've had some horrid experiences with websites selling furniture, home linen, crockery and similar stuff online and the most terrible plumbers and electricians coming home through certain portals that promise to provide such hassle free services. Nothing like your local electrician and plumber or the carpenter working in the flat next door and don't even think about getting your groceries delivered online, they'll frustrate you to no end! Aaah...lets leave all this for some other time I say. 
Sewing new things for the store is the only thing that keeps me sane at all times. I'm not too happy with my sewing space reduced to one single table in the guest bedroom, but I'm very content with the extra storage that I've got. I have two huge wardrobes to fill with all my sewing and crafting goodies. I get a whole lot of emails asking me where I buy my fabric, sewing notions and supplies from all the time. I have managed to reply to each one of you writing in with whatever I know. The sewing community here isn't too gracious with sharing information. I hope you've been able to find whatever it is that you're looking for. I seldom get really sweet emails from readers from this space and a few days ago I got a really endearing email from someone who said she loved reading my experiences here and had noticed I was missing for quite a while now. She'd actually written in to ask me if all was okay :) How utterly touching is that? Thank you girl (I know you're reading this) for pushing me to get back to my writing. The past week I've been working on a new project for the store. Took me a while to get all the measurements and the fabric and interfacing combinations right and I'm really excited with the end result. Here's a sneak peek of what's coming next.


 I hope to have them up in the store by tomorrow evening. These are pretty time taking and so I'm not going to be able to do too many for now. Only a couple, but I'll restock these in a few weeks. The much sought after make-up rolls and market bags are next in line. You could write in a line here if you'd like me to restock anything else.  
The Mister and I are planning a rather ambitious trip to Europe in September and after hours of filling in lengthy forms and putting together all the documents, we need to get to the visa office at 8 in the morning to give them in. Wish us luck guys. Travelling out of the country has become a rather tedious task these days. I hope all goes well, else we'll just hop on to a train and head to the countryside. 
How's the mango season coming along? I'm hoping to head home in July to my parents to gorge on the delicious mangoes that arrive after the rains :) For now I'm extremely happy with this :))


I have to show you how cute and grown up our lil girl Franny is. Her adorable eyes will make you melt. 


She's found a new fascination these days, wearing all her Mommy's tees :) Isn't she cute? 
Well I'm off to bed for now. I'll see you soon with a shop update. Thanks so much for reading.

Much luv,

Runa
