It is the time for end-of-year rituals : putting things on sale, doing a bit of inventory, changing up displays and diving into a general tidy-up. And it is time to launch into a new year of fresh creative directions. Perhaps if I write them here, it will help with the follow-through ! I will be bringing in a new work table for the planning of new designs, yardage printing , and making kimonos. The last is a new-old plan, since once upon a time I had a small business making only kimonos. As things are now, every garment I design/make is pretty much a "one-off". I will be striving for more consistency, with fabrication bringing the variety. Below we see: the shop window, a holiday dress by Moondance, and lights to brighten the chilly eve.
