The Phone Buzzes….
….and if it is from the legendary Mags, that means there’s a load of jeans ready to be collected from the Irish Wheelchair Association. So today I drove into Ennis to collect the latest collection of the good, the bad and the ugly of jeans. Every single pair are useful to me, no matter how battered, threadbare or banjaxed.
And now there is just the small task of washing, drying, sorting and cutting the jeans.
It’s a great feeling having plenty of jeans ready to be cut. I know it’s a naughty word to mention until after Hallowe’en, but Christmas isn’t that far away, so I need to get my act together!
Recycling jeans to make them into sustainable, vegan friendly, locally made handbags has to be positive!
And in other news
Around this time of year I often review all the photos I take of wildflowers from around my home and garden. I want to narrow them down to a few that will form a new fabric design.
Anyone want a hint about my next fabric?
I’m saying nothing more than this….
Enjoy the last few weeks of Summer, and don’t forget, signing up to my website with your email is the fastest way of finding out about new fabrics, handbag designs, neckbands or my random thoughts about jeans, cooking or wildflowers.

I love a challenge too, so if you have an awkwardly sized laptop you’d like to be able to carry in a Sallyann bag, send me the measurements and we’ll work something out.
