Happie hope you are ok after the storm.

Did you get my email and were you able to do a bag for a kid?


I am not 100% sure.... I DID get one email with an order, for 3 chalkbags, one which is the MonkeyShines for a child, with a special request to embroider the girl's name. Is THAT you?

If yes, I did respond to that email, but did not get a confirmation back yet. If that us you - the email must have gotten lost in the ethernet...Let me know and I will resend!

If that is NOT you, then NO - I did not get an email from you. In that case, the last communication on your item was in this thread, where I wrote:
Silver - I will work up the pattern over the weekend and see if I can't get it done on next Tuesday. That is "pack up the room" day but I can make the time to get one more bag done. It will be the same style - with brown velvet trim, but about 40% size as the usual ones are.

Please let me know, so I can be sure to get things right!

I did not get to the sewing room yesterday, because of the storm. But - I will go in tomorrow, and intend to do some of the Monkeyshines bags, with either one or two being for child size(one for Silver's daughter).

Then, I intend to do one more day next week, on Tuesday. And then - on the road on Wednesday!


All orders received to date are expected to be in the mail by Saturday, latest. Some have already gone out, others are getting packed up and sent today. EVERYONE who places an order should have gotten an email confirming that order, and also one is sent out once the order has shipped, along with a confirmation number.

So far as I can see, there may be some confusion with Silver's order, but I am thinking that his order/email is the one mentioned above, since I didn't get my response yet either.....

Thanks to everyone who has ordered bags. It has felt VERY good to have some business! Just enough to keep me busy, but not overwhelmed.


Locker - I SO need to get to Colorado... But it seems my migration schedule is not optimal time for CO climbing... What is the weather like there right now? I haven't made my route yet, but would expect that it would be kinda cold to be there mid-November....

UPDATE: Silver - I did NOT get any email directly from you(Also checked trash/spam folders). Tried to send a PM to you from your profile, and the function is disabled.

I am in the sewing room now, working on the Monkeyshines kid's size, but if you have special instructions, I need to know pretty much immediately.

The email address for me is happiegrrrl@gmail.com or climbaddictdesigns@gmail.com

Two kid-sized Monkeyshines hot off the sewing machine and I must say - I think the diminutive size is really adorable! One for Silver's daughter, and the other for the other person who ordered one for his girl.

Now I am working on a pretty stripe in autumn earthtone colors....

Update:

Silver - Your chalkbag is finished. I did get your email on 11/1 and have replied(sent to both email addy you used, and the one you requested to be sent to). If you haven't gotten that email there must be some strangeness in the air - let me know and I will post cel # to call.

John B - yours will go in today's post and will email with Delivery Confirmation.

I have one child's bag to do hadn-finishing, Michele's to hand finish, and try to get one more kid's size Monkeyshines sewn on Tuesday. Then...hoping to get a few new ones done and depending on the weather hope to hit the road Wednesday.

I hear there may be a big storm coming about then and so I am not sure yet though... Not sure if I should stay put for a few days and wait for it to pass. But I really don't want to see snow.... Brrr!


Also - I make hair accessories from vintage sewing buttons, and these make great gifts for climber women(and guys) with ponytails. You can see those at http://www.talismanshops.com

Just got my bag in the mail and it's delightfully soft and fuzzy. Will give it a spin about a half hour.

So far it's still pretty damned NICE!!!...

All next week remains good (to good enough) that I can see...

Beyond that I haven't checked...

Glad you like it, Murcy! I love that body material....made two more bags from it, Little Dipper Size. The trim is less burly, a nice chocolate ultrasuedede... They are unfinished but if someone wants one I can do it up. Just oder any of the $25 plus shipping bags, but put in the Note to Seller that you want a Sunset Stripe bag.

Norwegian - I am happy to know your kids are liking that chalkbag!

With a small generator in your van and WIFI you have a shop on wheels. Cool.

Cosmic - I hope it isn't those mink pelts! hahaha

Definitely want to climb I have been derelict in that this last few months.

As for a shop on wheels, I make a bunch of bags when I do have the eletricity, and then finish them by hand in the non-electric places. There is no way I would want to stow a generator, fabric cache and sewing machine in the van. It's enough with a duffle bag full of hair accessories and another with chalkbags, both finished and flat!

But having mobile broadband definitely does help, even though it is getting easier and easier to pick up wifi.

No.
Not the mink pelts.
Can't use them because the are to old and fragile.
I tried to take them apart to make the chalkbag myself and the FUR fell apart in my hands.
I have to find some new Mink to make my shalkbag.

I want to drop something off for you.

I'm glad, then, that I didn't try to make that bag when you asked. I would have felt terrible and like it was something I did wrong.
