And that's the show, folks!
I've made a big decision. I'm shutting down Buttontree Lane. I actually made the decision back in May, but it has taken me this long to work out how to actually shut it down.
I am waiting for some bags to arrive back from Material Arts in Braidwood (now sadly closed as Kate wanted to spend more time on her farm with her family) and I'll be putting those in the shop. I have a lot of sack bags cut out and ready to sew, but to be perfectly honest I'm not that keen to make them at the moment. Perhaps one day soon, when I'm at a loose end. But the shop will close, and once the bags are gone, they are gone.
I'm sorry to be disappointing people. Buttontree Lane, while it has been a lot of fun, gave me a creative life I had only previously dreamed about. Sewing project bags was a major part of who I was for over two years, but now it's time to move on and start sewing for myself and my family, and become my own person again.
The blog will stay for now, so you haven't seen the last of me. I'm hoping that with this decision finally out there, it will unblock my sewmojo, and I might be able to finish a quilt or two (and stop talking about it so much).
