New Bags

Many apologies - it's been a long time since our last post. The weather here on the Island has been very good in October, with lovely warm and sunny weekends - warm enough to go in the sea.
The workshop (without heating) is fortunately still plenty warm enough, thanks to solar power (ie; big windows), but we'll have to see what it's like as we get into winter. 

We've been working on some new bag designs recently. Following the popular 'shipping forecast' bags of the summer (which are still available, incidentally), we realised that the possibilities of text-on-bag are endless - quotes, lyrics, conversations etc. We're starting however, with segments from the easily recognisable Alice in Wonderland and recipes taken from Nigella's TV series book (which are cake-related, so it's not actually that far removed from Alice in Wonderland). We're also experimenting with a beautiful Liberty Tana Lawn lining to the bag.
We're still trying to get an online sales option up and running, so hopefully that will start soon, but in the meantime, here are some pictures and you can always contact us via the website if you are interested in purchasing.
