Already far in September and it seems the really hot days are behind us. The world turns into warm brown, orange and yellow and the air is sweet on harvest. Autumn is here.
Sadly, here in the Netherlands, we hit a second wave of Covid-19. We are still not in a new lockdown, but we do need to be careful. This is why I’m only going to the postal office twice a week now, unless you tell me you need it sooner (for inland delivery only, international I still can’t tell you how long it takes. For info on that, please check here).
I’m also making a batch of facemasks. I’m getting pretty tired of the one use facemasks that litter the street. I want to see pretty leafs there right now, not blue plastic. My facemasks will be washable at 60-90 degrees Celsius. I’ll make adult sizes in all natural fabrics (cotton mostly). A part of the profit will be saved up and donated to the Plastic Soup Foundation.
A Gelfling is also in the making and you can follow my process in my stories on instagram or facebook. I’ll collect all the stories in instagram for you to rewatch. I’ll try to document everything this time for maybe a tutorial on Jen. No promises. This project takes a lot of my time, so I have limited time to restock. You can always ask for a bespoke item.
If the weather and other circumstances allow it, I’ll be walking around on Heksia on Saturday (October 3). I always like to scout on an event I’m interested in selling at.
And on a last note: I am pretty tired lately. Somehow all the work I usually get over the whole year just dropped in my lap in the last month. No worries, I’ll get through it. I am very grateful things are picking up again. Just know that sometimes it can take a bit longer for me to work things out for you.
