Spot the oops in the bunting

This is what happens when you have no time and your in a hurry and you decide to whip up a little something else.  Now if I was a perfectionist or it was for a gift I would unpick it.  But is isn't so I won't :)

And a close up (not including the woopsie).

Christmas Holiday Closure and Delivery of Orders

After much agonising I have decided to close Stitchbird Fabrics for a Christmas and summer holiday break.  Last year when we went on holiday my lovely friend Margaret, looked after all your orders and fed our cat and generally was a great friend.

Margaret has moved to the Far North and we miss here a lot.  Added to that we have planned a major holiday this year.  It is Jack's last year at school next year and we figure that there are only so many family holidays left before he wants to do his own thing with friends or a partner.  (Please note I am still a little bit disbelieving that my "wee" (6 foot 3) baby is almost an adult).

So I will be processing and sending orders until the 18th of December.  So if you would like to place an order for some holiday sewing I will need to receive your order on the 18th of December at the latest.  Any orders received after that date will be processed and sent when we return on the 13th of January. 

So where are we off to?  Well for me it is one of those bucket list trips - I have always wanted to spend  Christmas and New Year in New York and that is where we are going.  I want to go ice skating at the Rockefeller Centre and see in the New Year in Times Square.  We are also spending some time in San Francisco and LA. 

Now if any of you have any recommendations on things to do or see, shops to visit or places to eat I would be most grateful for any information.
