As always, Claire, your work is fabulous.  There must be a  
whole bunch of charmingly dressed kids in your town.

Thank you Beverly,

Lets hope so when I get them to the Christmas markets!! It's  a very  
mixed clientelle here as I am based in the country so  I have clients  
who don't want well dressed just tough and cheap and then some that are  
more chic and like something they can't find anywhere else.

  What I do find here in France is that I am apreciated more as an  
Artisan, customers like the fact that they have met the person that  
designed and made the item (  It's the same with the statues) and that  
most of what I make is a one off. In the Uk I found  for me that it was  
harder to get a good price for handmade items. It did seem to be an  
attitude well if you made it  I could to so why so expensive!

Fingers crossed with the boys outfits. My customers buy more easily for  
girls than boys. Aprons are going very well at the moment, and they are  
  both girl and boy design. It's not a cliché that the French still love  
cooking.
