The lovely weather, sports day, my little man starting Beavers, my parents being away on holiday and me having to cover a part-time job for a few weeks whilst keeping up to date with my website, has meant that I just haven't had a chance to keep up to date with my little old blog - so many apologies.
OK, my big news that I was negotiating last time .... I HAVE A STAND AT THE KNITTING & SITCHING SHOW AT ALEXANDRA PALACE, LONDON, IN OCTOBER - ARGHHHHHHH !!!! I am very very excited, very very nervous and I'm starting to think I'm going a little mad !
Loyal Blooming Felt blog readers will know that I took my first step into the world of large retail shows last September, when I decided at the last minute to take a stand at the Stitch & Creative Crafts show at Sandown Racecourse. I had little over a month to get myself organised for that one, and managed to pull it off quite successfully (I like to think so, anyway), so having just over 4 months to get organised for the Knitting & Stitching Show seems like a luxury. However, I think that having less time is probably better because I thrive under pressure and I'm scared that I will just let time lapse and end up in a last minute panic this time. Fingers crossed though I know what I'm going into this time so can learn from the mistakes I made last time and cruise through this one (yeah right !). Further details about this event will follow in the next couple of months.
Back to website issues now - no new stock at the moment BUT I'm working on a new section for the website and hope to be able to share it with you soon (keeping it under wraps for the time being).
I haven't got a huge amount of other news and no photos of my own to show you, so thought I would share with you some of the photos that Blooming Felt customers have been emailing to me, showing off their wonderful creations made with their Blooming Felt purchases. As soon as I get a spare 5 minutes, the Customer's Gallery section of the website will be updated to show off these lovely items, along with links to the relevant artists / creators.
Thank you to everyone who has taken the time to send me their photos - I really do appreciate it and love to see the fantastic items you all make.
Right - I'm off to start making lists for that show !
