A New Year. A New Start

A new year full of new opportunities…  Well it is for me.  As with a lot of other people I’ve had a quite a cut of hours from my full time job.  I’m one of the lucky ones as I’m still in work and with a lot of belt tightening I’ll get by.  I’m still in the process of finishing off the cottage that I purchased last summer but come late spring I should have time to get sewing again.  With the extra time I now have, I want to start and try to put some of the things I’ve made into production and perhaps in time, leave my current line of work and create gear on a full time basis.

In true cottage style I’m starting small and trying to grow things organically.  I won’t be in a position to make anything for sale until the late spring at the earliest.  I don’t want to commit myself to making gear for people when I know I don’t have the time to fulfil orders. 

What I do want to know from you good people in the next couple of months is what you want to see developed in 2012?  I’m thinking of just doing one or two lines to start off with.  A summer quilt and perhaps a tarp or two?  But I’m willing to be persuaded.  If you do have any thoughts of what you would like to see developed, even if you’re not in the market to buy, please leave a comment below and/or tick a few boxes above.  Oh, and Happy New Year!
