the kit craziness has begun!

Everyday I work on kits, sometimes for a few minutes, sometimes for hours.  Mostly it's work I can't share because the kits aren't launched yet and I don't want to spill the beans too early (even though I am busting to!)   Sometimes I'm designing and sample making, sometimes I'm drawing patterns and writing instructions, sometimes I'm finding suppliers and buying supplies, sometimes I'm working on packaging ideas and sometimes I'm planning & list making!
And boy does it take a lot of planning and a lot of lists!
I currently have 18 new kits to launch.  One is in some of the boxes above, they left here yesterday on the way to my newest stockist: The RSPB....way back in January they asked me to design them an exclusive kit, and I was so chuffed to do it!  Once I see that the kits are for sale (in shops, online and in the Christmas Catalogue, I think) I will show you what I have made for them  :-)
John and I took our holiday before the kit craziness started in earnest and this week all my pre-booked deliveries started arriving....there's tonnes of printing, findings, buttons, fabric and Pom Poms! (that box has 18,000 pom poms!!).... luckily we have rented some extra space to store it all, because there's not enough room in the workshop any more...once it's all tidy and ship-shape I'll show you that :-)
So the first six months of 2012 were planning the kits...and the next six months will be making them!  Come on kit craziness-I'm ready for you!
