Hello, everyone! We thought it was just about time to catch you up on everything we've been doing lately. January was a pretty busy month for us, and February is looking even busier! So we thought today would be a good day for the tell-all. First off —
route 66 skirts are here!
You'll find sewing patterns, along with custom-crafted skirts in four styles!
Now, onto exciting-thing-number-two.
We're now including a little version (made by us) of Nana's amazing dishcloth with every custom-made little chic sisters apron! (We've heard these soft cotton-y cloths are great in the bathtub, too. Especially when they turn the bathwater pink. After all, who wouldn't love pink bathwater?)
And… our official marie-madeline studio hang tags are here at last! From now on, every custom order will receive one of these pretty things. Oh yes, the fabric for this messenger bag is Amy Butler's LOVE home dec. (Coming soon to the shop, along with a couple of fun, coordinating prints!)
Nanny's due in sometime tomorrow. You all know what that means! That's right. She'll be sleeping on the four-hour flight home. All the way.
Snow? Yep, we've been getting plenty of it lately. Which gives us a good excuse to stay inside and work on our biggest project of the new year…
We're moving! We've outgrown our studio space, so marie-madeline has to find a new home! A new home in the same home, that is. (We'll plan on posting pictures, of course!) And because of all this upside-down-ness, we've decided to clearance off every ready-made item we have on hand, which includes everything from sample items to the girls' clothes formerly in our Etsy shop. (We're changing our Etsy store up a tiny bit, too… less ready-made, more fabric bundles.) All that to say, we'll be posting the clearance items soon, Lord willing, and sell them straight from the blog.
But back to the moving situation. We're really doing it with mixed feelings — excitement at having more room, really incredible Dad-built fabric shelving, a genuine cutting table, and loads of storage space on the one hand. So many happy memories in our little sewing room on the other hand. But that's life, isn't it? We'll just have to make new memories, and store up the old ones. The Lord is very kind!
Lots of love and warmth and cheer to you & yours!
xo, the Long ladies
