With building a new house and moving in August, I knew last fall that I would not be doing a Christmas in July Open House here at the Satt Cat Inn. What I did not anticipate in any way was a pandemic. HOWEVER, I do think that this new “pandemic, masking, social distancing way of life” has required people to become creative in order to continue daily living with some semblance of normalcy.
I continue to make masks, especially now for children as they possibly need them to try and return to the classrooms for some kind of normal educational experience in an abnormal world.
And I have also sewn a 60″-ish Swedish table runner with two complementary 18″ inch table squares. It was so nice to have normal sewing that only required normal creativity.
But it is July and my Open House that is not happening…at least in the normal way. So in this “pandemic, masking, social distancing way of life”, I had an idea. Ah-h, my creativity is trying to rally. The sewing room is packed and ready to go on the truck, but my computer and design book are not packed yet. Over the next few months, I will highlight some of the most popular items during the past year & holiday season; and you can check my website at www.sattcatbags.com for even more ideas. Most items can be personalized by embroidering a name, or choosing a personal fabric or even by showcasing a favorite color.
As soon as you know what you may want to order for whomever, either add a a reply comment to this blog OR send me an email and I will add you to The List.
I already have five orders, and with the extended time that any of my online ordering companies need in this bizarre world, it’s never too soon to start acquiring the needed supplies.
Who knows, maybe instead of the Bunny Drop that the Old Guy and I did back in March to deliver all the spring sewing orders, we could do an Elf Run to safely deliver the orders in this “pandemic, masking, social distancing way of life”. Could be fun and would be entertaining, for sure!
