School trip and pegbags

My 8 year old went on her first 3 day away school trip this week to an outward bound activity centre to do abseiling, archery, fencing, zip wire... etc... She had a great time and even the miserable weather didn't spoil it for her. I on the other hand found it a bit strange, especially as she couldn't ring home at all. I knew she would be fine but 3 days and no contact was pretty weird.
Luckily we had lots to do in the studio so that helped pass the time and Alice really did keep me busy.

We have made up 20 pegbags in different colours and fabrics.
They are rather a fun little design with either a flower or a heart opening through which you put your hand to get to the pegs. Alice designed these about 18 months ago and they are one of our most popular items. They are made from canvas and recycled fabrics and have a wooden hanger which can be removed for laundering.

We even got a request played on our local radio station this week ... and yes it was that old favourite copa cabana... a very long song and we danced the whole way through.. a great release for my nervous energy.

Finally, I would like to introduce you to Alice.
She has kept my spirits up this week and has made me laugh and laugh. Thank you Al x .

Hi Ginny,

Thanks for your lovely comment! It's so nice to meet new people, especially those in the UK (I've been finding lots recently!) who share the same sort of interests.

What gorgeous peg bags and botanical imagery on the last post, really stunning - a gal after my own heart!

Have a great week :)
