Check out our Cushibags! Now recovering from broken wrist!

After breaking my wrist mid July it's been a tough old time at Gala Cottage. Out flying a kite at the beach and managed to trip over a log - then mangled hand and arm as radius broke clean off...lovely. Back sewing again today for the first time in ages. Added this to my website... take a look...half cushion half bag! x

Getting up to date with orders

As I'm going to take a little time for mat leave and getting some new bits on the website, I am working on clearing the orders that I currently have. Bunting for a local gala and a nursery sports day is next on the agenda. Plus lots of birthdays this month so i need to get making some gifts for these. I'll pop them on here once they are done.  Here's some finishing touches pics.

Plus fathers day so making some cushions for this too. Busy times...x

Revamping the website etc so hopefully back on track for end of July to tkae more orders. Sometimes it's refreshing to take stock and get cracking with new ideas eh...

Nautical Star Bunting

Another personalised bunting completed earlier this week for a bedroom. At least one task completed. Now need energy to get the rest of the orders done.....hope baby sleeps!

What a lovely day!

The first day where I don't have to wait in for midwives/health visitors/workmen so me Gregor and Moray popped out to the local country park for some fresh air this morning then out for a walk this afternoon. My reasons being slightly selfish though as I need to get back to work on the Gala Cottage products with a shop interested and orders building up it's very frustrating not to have the time to sit at the machine and when I do, I seem to be making a mess of things.

So here is for some focus in the coming weeks to get back on track. If any one has any tips on how to stay focussed when working from home, please pass them on as I would really like to hear them. I have the kids in a strict routine and can normally get from 8pm onwards to work (stopping for feeds every 3-4 hours) but I am just so tired it doesn't always go to plan.

Plus I am looking for some places that do nice country/nautical style fabric and ribbons. Any suggestions would be welcomed.....

Hope you all had a lovely summers day today!

Baby Moray is here!

There is a new addition here at Gala Cottage and i'll be having a wee rest from the sewing for a few days till I get settled.

Moray arrived on Saturday at 1.45pm and weighed in at 7lbs 6ounces. After them breaking my waters he arrived exactly 4 hours later...another short labour!
