Here at the new Bustle & Sew HQ we’ve been appreciating the lovely sunny autumn weather with lots of scrunching through crisp fallen leaves on our walks (me), rummaging in hedgerows for rabbits (Daisy) and generally enjoying the cooler temperatures (the very woolly-coated Ben).
And the countdown to Christmas has begun! As well as our “Getting Ready for Christmas” Sale in-store this week, I’ve been working on new Christmas patterns for the November issue of the Bustle & Sew Magazine and have also been putting the finishing touches to some very special new kits that will be coming at the weekend ….
We’re very proud of our new Christmas Mouse kits! I’d forgotten how much I enjoy, and how easy it is to make these little mice, and the addition of reindeer antlers, red nose and vintage blanket scarf make them look very festive I think. There are going to be two versions, one in cream and one in blue felt (shown above), each with a lovely chunky baker’s twine tail and I’ll let you know when they’re available.
