Two Days??? That Cant Be Right!

However, that is right, there are only two days left until launch day!  Im pleased to report that, apart from one or two photos, the site is set and ready to go.  Not sure exactly what time we will be going live on Thursday, Im thinking about lunchtime, once we've checked, double checked and then checked some more that everything is ok and nothings been left out!

Handmade cover buttons that match some of our fabrics

There are hundreds of products on the sight and its been a real labour of love so Im hoping you will love it as much as we do.

I posted last time that we'd be awarded The Liebster Blog Award by two lovely ladies, Marie at Dinki Dots and Twinkle Star at Twinkles, Tutorials and Twirls.  So as the rules state, Im now going to pass it on to five blogs I find inspiring (and have less than 200 followers!).

Everyday I'm Stitchin'
Love reading Gemmas blog and she's got a bookshelf of crafty books Im jealous of!!

Sewing Pink
Hannah is new to sewing (and blogging) but Im loving reading what project she's undertaking next as it wasnt so long ago I was a complete beginner!! 

Josie has recently made the most gorgeous shoulder bag (I've closely got my eye on!).  Pop over and say hi!

Another new-to-blogging blog but the title sums up everything I could hope for from a blog!!  Fabulous makes here too so definitely check it out.

Made By (A)Me
This blog is perfect as it includes baking, sewing, crafting - what more could you want from a blog!??  Drop by and say hello and check out her recent cupcake bunting.

So thats my list, I hope they all like the award (if not, I obviously wont be offended) but just wanted to show some appreciation for some really lovely blogs that I look forward to reading of an evening!

One Week Til Launch Day!

It never fails to amaze me how quickly time goes.  However, Im really pleased to say there is only a week to go until we launch online!  This time next week, the site will be live and hopefully, you will be swooning over all our gorgeous fabrics, ribbons and buttons and have a million creative ideas floating round your head.

There are a lot of things planned for this blog too.  Aswell as regular updates of whats going on behind the scenes at The Sewing Boutique HQ, we will be doing regular tutorials, hopefully I will be inviting a few guests to do tutorials too, we will have regular product reviews and updates so you can find out whats new in the shop and also, discount codes and giveaways when we reach a few milestones! 

One of our favourite fabric bundle named "Cream Tea"!
Also on this blog next week will be details of our Launch Day Giveaway!!  This will be huge and not to be missed!  Im putting the final touches to the prize but needless to say it will include fabric, lots of ribbon and maybe even a special code for the winner to use on the site?  Sound tempting!?  All will be revealed next week!

Will these be included in our Launch Day Giveaway??
Also, our new blog has been awarded a couple of awards lately, for which we are so grateful!  Marie at Dinki Dots and Twinkle Star at Twinkles, Tutorials & Twirls have awarded us The Leibster Blog Award.  So so kind ladies, thank you so much!  I will pass the award on in my next post.

Ribbon Love

Whenever Im in my local haberdashery, Im almost mesmerised by the amount of ribbon there is!  Its like the most beautiful rainbow, with more colours!  Our stock of ribbon is building up nicely Im pleased to say and I thought I'd share a few photos we're getting ready to put on the site.

Pink baby feet - perfect for cardmaking, sewing, anything really!

Double satin ribbon in lots of lovely colours


...and more spots!

Gorgeous satin ribbon in loads of colours and spotty ribbon.  Who doesnt love spotty ribbon!?  Also, how gorgeous are these vintage buttons I came across the other day?

These will be going in the "Vintage Finds" section on the site along with some really lovely vintage fabric, sewing patterns, trimmings and more buttons!

Only three weeks to go!!
