Closed sign

Polly’s studio is undergoing a move and major refurbishment after my youngest left home at the weekend. My studio is now the spare bedroom and Tom’s old room is bare, with my stuff piled in the centre awaiting paint and carpet! It’s been an emotional couple of weeks as he moved all his stuff out (he’s not gone far, I can still annoy him easily and chat about life, the universe and all the other crap!) I feel ready for a new phase and the moving of my studio from one end of the house to the other should keep me busy and stop me getting all sad and silly. I am so happy for Tom and his lovely girlfriend Jess and I LOVE their new place and I’m sure they will be very very happy there :)

I’ll be closing the shop today for physical items, patterns will still be available to purchase and download and I’m still here to answer any questions, but my packing materials and yarns are all boxed away for a few weeks now. I have lots of great stuff coming for the re-opening so watch this space! 2015 will start with a new Polly and a new Jane.

I’m off to reinvent myself now… have a fabulous December and Holiday season. See you in January!
