At last - we've found a day to concentrate on replenishing the stocks. It's been a case of catch up for months now, basically just racing from one order to the next. The card displays in the workshop are frankly quite embarrassing at the moment. No sooner do we stock them up than we're raiding them to supply the Farm Shop or other trade customers. It's not too bad for our regular customers - they know to ask if they don't see what they want, and I can usually make something up for them there and then - but it's not too inviting for new visitors.
Anyway, there was a good batch made today and more again tomorrow, and we should see a better looking shop.
I've also got some new ideas floating around in the goldfish bowl of my brain - not telling what yet - but I'm going to aim for some fresh designs to preview at the Trade Fair. Not much pressure there then!
Well, I'm half way through making the list of cutting out jobs for Fiona this coming week. This is a Wednesday night job which is quite a complicated task, checking which designs need to be topped up and compiling the list for her. We do use the services of a laser cutter for most of the shapes we applique on to the cards, but there are always plenty of others for Fiona's scissors. Better get back to it.
