Crazy days

Today was one of those crazy days, crazy good actually. First off Mum and Dad turned up with a new sewing machine, just in time for a new order we are busy sewing for the National Gallery of Australia, (exciting news from last week.) Then after much patience, hoping and dreaming Robert the electrician turned up to mark out the installation of the gadget required to get the big old steel door open that covers our front door, (really truly can't believe it may actually happen, just waiting for the gadget to arrive) then two minutes later 2/3 of our much awaited Sophie Digard order arrived. Too much happiness! We are still tiding away the remnants of yesterdays hen's party, yes l'uccello does cater for crafty hens parties etc. We are all set up to sign on the dotted line for great new digs for a class room and production room upstairs so stay tuned for a class time table soon. As we are moving we are having a GARAGE SALE this Friday, 10 - 4pm every thing must go (so that we can fit into our new rooms), the shop of course will stay where it is on the second floor. So we are working like crazy elves getting ready for Marche Rouge next week and now it really does seem like the season to be jolly.
AND I finally managed to get all the prizes from the competition packed and off to the post office today so if you won a prize it is on it's way, thank you so much to everyone for your lovely thoughts and support.

 X marks the spot, could the door finally be about to open? This is actual electricians tape, I know it's not much but it is the closest thing to a start in almost a year so very exciting, open sesame.

Sophie Digard and Artiga too much lovely Frenchiness

What's better than a new Sophie Digard necklace? A Sophie Digard necklace and Lacroix stationary, of course sweetie!

I will post more detailed photos of Sophie delivery tomorrow night, it is 3 am and the only thing keeping me awake is some wicked chocolate cake left over from the hen's party. We have lots of new antique threads perfect for gold work embroidery and a few vintage millinery trims with more on the way, will blog them as soon as they arrive.

Have a fabulous week and just give us call if you are interested in any of the Sophie Digard pieces, but as always don't wait too long, we only have one of most of them. Thanks x
