Spring is Coming

Well, it's been a little bit since my last post, but here's what has happened since then: I've gotten 5 seed catalogues in the mail, which I've been devouring as if I needed to plant the garden tomorrow. The Red-Winged Blackbirds are back from their winter vacation, and so now are the Canadian Geese. They flew over our house two days ago, honking as they went by. The days have gotten a little bit longer, and the clover that covers my garden has begun to grow again. I have continued to read the book, "Animal Vegetable, Miracle" and am feeling extra eager to garden "for real" this year.

Also, My business, BCharmer Designs begain selling on a second site called "Art Garage Sale" and I'm the featured seller there right now! That means I get to be on the front page for a couple of days, increasing my exposure. It's a new site for buying and selling handmade items. It's a lot like Etsy, but it's still tiny because it's new. Check it out! And here's my shop on that site.

I have a lot to talk about, but I also have to limit my computer time because I have so much to do! So I will show some restraint and try to post small but often.

Love that scooter print!!!!!!! I have been meaning to ask what you would charge for a belt if I sent you the fabric. Also, how much fabric would you need. My favorite pants are in need of repair and I am feeling all matchy matchy.

I lokked at this wallet, and its fabric again...and it is soo tempting for me. But I already have a cardholder and a wallet from you :-)
What else can I have? Do you plan to make tote bags for example? If yes, I am definitely in the line for it, with this superlovely fabric.
