New furball

Meet our latest addition to the family: lady Florence. After our white guinea pig Becky sadly died last month, we're happy to have found Flo. She's a real cutie, don't you think?

Preparations for the big shows in March have already started here at Dots n Stripes HQ and the latest creation coming of the production line is this relatively plain El Porto bag. In grey nylon and with lots of embroidery:

New bags

I recently tried the messenger bag pattern from Farbenmix's Taschenspieler CD - one in fine cord and safari canvas and the other one in alphabet canvas fabric with various inside pockets. Huge!

7 years Dots n Stripes - Happy Birthday!

On the 16th of January 2007 my little shop went online and has grown ever since, therefor I would like to say a big THANK YOU to all my customers for their loyalty and support!

And is there any better way of celebrating than having a giveaway? Well, I could invite all my customers for a party but then I think my family would run away and my house isn't big enough for all of you anyway :-)
So, after a long thought of what you might like, I've decided to give away a very practical, truly unique

El Porto Bag

This is the one!

To enter, just send me an email with your name and comment what you would use this bag for and that's it! The lucky winner will be drawn on Sunday, 19th January!

Good luck!

It makes me wonder

I met a lovely lady at the Sewing for Pleasure Show in Birmingham last March who ordered a pattern that I had sold out of. So I posted it out straight away after I had it back in stock. Just after I'd sent it she phoned to say she had given me the wrong house number and feared that it wouldn't arrive. So I sent it again to the correct address and she then very kindly let me know after it had arrived.
By that time I thought if the other one couldn't be delivered it would come back to me. It didn't, and to be honest over the time I completely I forgot about it. Lost in post. Until today - an envelope arrived with a Royal Mail note saying "not known at this address". At first I coulnd't really make anything of it as the name and address didn't ring a bell but when I opened it and saw the date it was posted it came back to me. It was sent on the 5.4.13!
Now, Royal Mail, can you tell me where it has been for the past 9 months?

I started this top a couple of months ago, but didn't get to finish it until Hogmanay as there was always something more urgent and important to do and it always got put to the bottom of the pile.
The pattern is the Ottobre pintuck tunic that I've made a few times before combined with a loop scarf, a great team I think espcecially in winter to keep the neck warm!
