Today is going to be one of those general rambling posts - so bear with me.
First up is a bit of a strange one. I found out today that some people have a fear of BUTTONS !! Can you believe that? The poor people, I can't imagine what it must be like to be afraid of buttons ! Hubby informs me that he is scared of them, but I don't believe him for one tiny second - he's just getting fed up with the amount of buttons that are starting to take over our house - although he could be afraid of the fact that he might actually drown in a sea of buttons (which is quite possible judging by the amount of buttons I've got .... with even more on the way !!). Personally, I think that would be a lovely way to go ;o)
Now, the Christmas spirit is starting to take hold in our house. Whilst we haven't yet put the tree up (that's next weekend), we've got Advent calenders to open, Nativity plays and Carol concerts to attend, Christmas cards to write, presents to wrap and a candle-light lantern parade to attend whilst watching Father Christmas arrive on a narrowboat .... that should be interesting. No doubt my little madam will want to know why the reindeer aren't on the boat !! .
I did virtually all of my Christmas shopping online this year, with the exception of a few lovely gifts that I purchased at the Country Living show. Everything has now been delivered and is squirrelled away, waiting to be wrapped, although quite how I'm going to wrap a rather large wooden dollshouse, complete with furniture, is starting to worry me. Any ideas gratefully received.
And whilst I'm here, I'll give you a quick website update.
Today I've added the most gorgeous sets of sparkly, feathery, tinselly trim & ribbon to the site. Available in 5 different colours this trim will certainly glam up your Christmas pressies !!
The felt flowers are now back in stock, as are the mirrored, embroidered and tie dye felt balls. New designs of felt balls include spiral balls, swirly balls and knitted / crocheted balls - all available to buy individually and in Grab Bags.
I've also got a number of new designs of felt balls arriving later this week, so my next post will be all about them ! Oh, and I've added some new colours of 100% wool felt to the site. More colours will be on their way soon.
And ... remnant silk sari ribbon is a lovely new addition to the site as well. All hand-dyed and stitched end to end, this ribbon will make a fantastic embellishment on all sorts of projects. £5 will get you approximately 25g .... and that's a lot of silk ribbon !!!
Right - time to go. Those Christmas cards won't write themselves !
