Don't you just LOVE wednesday's? Say hello to wednesday "hello wednesday" It's all downhill from now on to the weekend - yippee!!!
Todays Hello wednesday project has been made by one of our young French customers - Louise. I think Louise will be 13 towards the end of this month, she comes to see us at every show with her mother and grandmother. She made this card for Tony, to thank him for sending entrance tickets and it is beautifully written inside in English. The aida fabric has a slight sparkle which gives it that extra Christmas feel, and Louise's stitching is so neat. Perfect.
Louise is a great fan of our ribbons, and always finds the new designs. She loves Hello Kitty and quickly found a few ribbons she had not seen before.
Both Louise and her mum are blog followers, so hopefully this will be a nice surprise when they come and visit.
I have no idea what it is about the French shows, the long hours, trying hard to speak French, the conversion from sterling to euros or the intensity of the customers to learn - or a little bit of everything, but they wipe us out!! I feel somewhat better than yesterday, but definitely not back to normal. My foot is complaining from all the walking and standing up, but I managed to get a proper pair of shoes on for Saturday so it must be getting better.
It feels good to know there are no more shows this year, our first one next year, believe it or not is back in Paris!!! There you go Rachie, you do not have to change the signs around or re-price everything. See I do love you.
