Millie's advent

I made my daughter an advent calendar this year:
The good stuff:

Only 8 bags left!

And the winner is...

Congratulations, Daniel - You are the winner of the Quince pouch giveaway! 

Thank you so much to everyone who entered, and for your very kind comments! They were unnecessary, but very much appreciated.

I am still using military surplus materials, but have also started working with waxed canvas. This material is ideal for bags because it is durable, water resistant, and develops a patina similar to leather with use. I love sewing with it too, it's such a treat after sewing with the surplus materials.
It is not a recycled material, but it is produced by a company in the U.S. that has been producing this fabric since the early 1900s, uses food quality waxes, and cares about the integrity of their product.

I thought I'd try to do a welcome back giveaway to get back into the swing of things. Up for grabs is a choice of one of the updated Quince pouches, either in waxed canvas or wool.
To enter, please leave a comment on this post. I just created a new Facebook page too, and it would be greatly appreciated if you could Like it, but it is not a requirement for entry.

A winner will be chosen at random on Sunday December 9th.

Clasp pouches

Added a few clasp frame pouches in the Etsy shop. We used to make these every year for the One of a Kind show but never managed to make it home with any to put in the webshop.

Oh wow, it has been over two years since I last wrote!

So much has changed in those two years, most notably, a new family member, and a new city.

I just wanted to write a quick note to say hello, and to say that we are, at long last, planning some updates on here, and in the shop.

Thank you so much to those of you who wrote kind emails to check in during our hiatus.

And if you wrote and didn't receive a response, please write again! I may not have gotten your message. We have been having some ongoing problems with our email account.
