Hello everyone…all went well yesterday, stand restocked and we are on our way to Birmingham!
If you have ever visited us at one of the shows, you will know that our stand is very colourful. Not only is it filled with delightful ribbons and buttons, but we also have lots of inspiration. The back walls of the stand are filled with, cushions, cards, wellies…… well to be honest anything and everything you can make with ribbon and buttons. Some items have been made by me, others by our fabulous design team, we have samples made by customers (if you look into the two side corners of the stand you will see two calico dollies made for me….ummm 10 –12 years ago, they are our lucky charms and are always on display).
I treasure all the creations that are made for me. We display them to inspire others, I joke with customers that all the inspiration is free!!! We allow photos of all these creations, so I was devastated at Ally Pally to find that I had my Christmas pudding garland stolen. I could not believe it and was very, very angry on Saturday night. Obviously a photo was not good enough for one lady!
Sharon Powell made it for me for 3-4 years ago and it has hung on my stand every show since. I have been asked time and time again if it was a kit, but always said no and suggested they took a photo. I am very sorry Sharon and I hope to see you this week at Hobbycraft.
I have tried looking for photos of Sharon’s Christmas pudding hearts but can not find them………………….so I have made this from memory.
Hope you like it Sharon. You will find this funny……..Tony screwed it to the wall in Dublin!
If you would like this kit then leave us a comment and we will pick a winner after the NEC.
The winner of our Advent owl calendar is…..

Have a great week everyone.
