New home, and donation pads on the way!

Greetings from our new home - a beautiful village near Oswestry in Shropshire! My sewing room/office was one of the first things I set up, and it's a pleasure to work in. A huge double window gives me great lighting for sewing, and shows off a view of towering oak trees. It's a lovely setting for being creative.

The move itself did not go smoothly; in fact it was a bit of a disaster. The movers told us they could move us in one load, and we foolishly believed them. When they realised they couldn't, they left half of our furniture behind, just sitting outside in the rain. Including the bed! My poor partner had to make a 2 hour drive in the early hours of the morning to rescue everything, while I spent the first night in our new home curled up with the dog.

A lot of our stuff is damaged/broken, but nothing that impedes Luna Wolf. Fortunately I had taken precautions and sent my sewing machine, overlocker, snap press, and artwork over with my parents.

I'm delighted to say that while I was engaged in this fiasco, almost all of my donation pads and pad sets sold. This is fantastic! I've been really touched by people's generosity, and I know the pads will make a huge difference to women living in poverty. A heartfelt thank you to everyone who purchased donation pads/sets. The pads are on their way to Sister Hope, who will distribute them in Uganda later this month.

  1. Your new sewing area sounds amazing! I just cleaned my sewing area, it's more easier to find what I need!

    Good thinking by sending your machines and art to a safe place!

    I hope you can selvage or easily replace some of those items :( Stupid movers!

    Your charity pads look fabulous, the design is so handy! I need to get off my butt and send some too!
