Friday FREEBIE and EUREKA ribbons

I am a really excited bunny. 
You should have seen me a few moments ago when I opened up my emails.
I was even bouncing up and down on my chair.

It was quiet at Exeter around lunch time on Sunday.
So, as our stand is on the perimeter of the show, I sneaked around the back to eat my sandwich.
While round there munching away, I had a EUREKA moment!
No idea where it had come from, but by the time my sandwich had been consumed I had everything worked out.

Tony must know me so well, as I came back on the stand, he looked at my face and said “How much is it going to cost me?”

I spent all day Monday designing my EUREKA moment and sent it to the factory.It was beyond anything they had ever done for us before, so I did not want them to say no before they had seen the design.Thinking that if they saw it, and realised that I had taken a long time working on it, they would find a way of producing it.

This mornings email confirmed they would produce two SUPER sized ribbon molds……………
…….and they have found a production slot for me. 
We are already on re-prints of some of the new Christmas ribbons and they have tagged these EUREKA ones onto that run.

I am sooooooo excited.
I wish I could tell you more, but then it would not be a surprise!!!

Back down to earth Ali.

Do you remember my advent bunting?
Well I turned it into a kit for Exeter and we SOLD OUT.  Hooray.


(I must ask something – why do people have to put their fingers into the ribbon pockets?
Tony and I found it interesting, there is nothing in the pockets, and it is obviously a pocket – what are they looking for?
Any ideas, can you enlighten us? Please.)

The kit comes with full instructions with photos, tag ribbons, advent ribbon and the bias binding.
All you have to provide is the fabric and the thread.

Would you like one?  If yes then please leave us a comment and we will pick a winner after Ally Pally.
If you are coming to see us in London, do not worry, Rachie is making another batch of Advent Kits today.

The winner of the last Friday FREEBIE is Fiona Macdougall
I'm just about to finish one advent calendar and starting on my wall hanging! Excited by Christmas. Not long now :P

Congratulations Fiona and thank you for joining in.  Please email Bev with your address.
