+Things around the house lately - learning to use the new camera and not over expose everything - somewhat challenging!

+I've been taking a few new wholesale orders which has been taking up most of my sewing time! Pretty exciting! Once these ones are wrapped up, I'm back to working on the summer collection, which I'm hoping to have available by mid-end of June!

+Last of the cobalt lambskin for now - only a 2 hides left and then I'm out! What a bummer.

+Forgot to mention that during our Philly trip I briefly stopped by Art Star Craft Bazaar where I got to meet Katie! We got to shop talk it up which was super fun. I picked up one of her little green bags, which is a perfect size for my small camera - I love it!

+Ahh! I'm so bad, but I swear this will be one of the last things I buy this spring. I'm pretty certain I'm going to keep them, but I feel I should be more frugal than I have been lately - so for now I'm telling myself, "It's okay, I can return them..." haha!

The colours look beautiful. I guess that is what a nicer camera has over the crappy point and shoot (which is what I have!).

Those shoes are exquisite. No wonder you had to have them.

Any idea on what you are going to do with that turquoise leather yet? I've been keeping my eye out for any hints since you mentioned it a while ago!

That's so exciting Julia! What kind of camera did you get?

Where did you eventually find the teal Dieppa Restrepos? I would looove a pair, size 10.

angela said...

Love those shoes! & the photo of your bedroom is really beautiful too

Lindsay said...

Oh GOSH! The new DRs are aweeeeesome. That color is so good.

Cheryl - Thank you! It's my new favorite thing, to wear bright colored shoes! :) It's been fun doing the wholesale work too :)

Belinda - I'm still so nervous to cut into the turquoise because I'm undecided about what to make from it! I'm sure I'll make some of the small pouches, and I'm thinking two market totes. I only have a half a hide so I'll have to squeeze as much out of it as I can!

Jenya - I know, finally right? Wasn't I talking about a new camera like a year ago? haha! I ended up getting a Cannon T1i - and I really like it so far!

Ritu - They are from Totokaelo! They aren't the Dina style I originally mentioned, they are the Cali oxford - but they are awesome! It looks like they already might have sold the size 10 though :(

Angela- Thank you! Our bedroom is probably my favorite room in the house, mainly because there is barely anything in it, and it's always so sunny!

Lindsay - I know, right? I LOVE the color! You should go get yourself some too lady!
