Today's blog is just a reminder about our show over the Bank Holiday weekend at Calke Abbey in Derbyshire. It's open from 10am til 5pm all three days, and is well worth a visit. The house and gardens alone are stunning, so add in the craft show, and you'll have a lovely day out. If anyone is interested, give me a shout and I have a £1.50 discount voucher that I can email over to you for money off your entrance tickets.
It was my birthday on Friday, but it was also Chris' mom's on Wednesday. Shelagh collects ducks...wooden and ceramic ones at the moment, although I wouldn't be surprised to see a couple swimming about on their pond at some point in the future!...so we made her a wooden duck with a cute fabric wing. It worked out pretty well, so we've decided to make them to sell as well. Like an idiot, I forgot to take a photo of Mrs Duck before wrapping it up, but once we've made more, I'll put some pictures on here and then get them on the website.
My birthday present from Chris was this gorgeous toadstool house that he's been secretly making in the workshop for the last couple of weeks. I especially love the two little cats that he added, our BumBum and Tillybum. We're thinking about making similar versions to sell online and at the shows. What do you think?
We have loads of shows coming up this month, so I'm off for a manic sewing day...beach huts, lighthouses, birdies, ducks, apples, hearts, boats.....and so the list goes on. Maybe it wasn't such a good idea to write the list, it's a bit scary seeing in written down like that!!
