Thought I would get in early with a showing of some of the fantastic creations from our current New England challenge.
This is Janets second challenge with us, Janet lives I believe somewhere at the back of the warehouse, no not in our warehouse but behind Clump Farm. Janet always makes her creations look fantastic, presentation is the key.
See what I mean. This box was delivered by hand, it was delayed by a day as it rained and the greenery was all wet and soggy. Seeing something like this puts me in two minds....ooooh whats inside.........but it is too beautiful to open. The second never lingers very long and I plunge straight in!!!
Janet had created a festive treasure trove - where she got the crackers from in Blandford I have no idea. Hasn't the addition of the ribbons made these crackers look stunning. Brill idea.
Janet has carried the idea through to her festive table. Wow what wicked napkin rings. I love them.
Ooops! This photo is slightly out of focus, I would normally retake it...but...........well..........they looked so tempting..............yes I did. All gone! Janet I can assure you that this little jar of sugar almonds would be a super present.
Slip knot braiding is such a super use of ribbon, I keep meaning to show you all how to do it. It is on my list (by the way it has not got shorter!). I can imagine that the grosgrain 3mm is easy to work with Janet.
The last item out of Janets box was this sweet little bag holder a finger of fudge. What a perfect little table gift for Christmas Day, or make up several and hang on the Christmas tree.
Thanks for all your super creations Janet, opening your box was a real delight.
