Oh I do like to stroll along the prom, prom, prom
When one of my best friends buys a funky beach hut !!
OK, so the last bit doesn't rhyme, but it's true !!
My very good friend Amanda has decided to buy a beach hut at lovely Frinton on Sea on the Essex Coast
and asked me to go along and "view" the beach huts with her.
This was our favourite - it's called Uncle Albert's. It needs a little bit of tarting up, but when it's done, oh my, how lovely it will be ! We already decided that it will have bunting and lots of wooden seaside themed stuff (think East of India goodies) to make it look lovely. How exciting !
We went back to the Estate Agents to put in the offer only to be told that the current owners were away on holiday until the 29th May. Never mind, we'll just have to keep our fingers crossed that no-one else looks at it in the meantime.
Ok, as promised last time ... this is a craft blog so it's about time that I showed you some crafty stuff.
Mrs J, my tutorial lady has come up with a fab idea. A felt ball coaster ! How cool is that ?! After a couple of attempts, she managed to come up with the perfect design and has even written down a set of instructions to go with it.
If you fancy having a go yourself, click here to be magically transported to the Tutorials section on my website where you will be able to download a pdf of the tutorial.
AND DON'T FORGET - I WANT TO SEE PHOTOS OF YOUR FINISHED PRODUCTS !!
People are being a little bit slow in coming forward with their wonderful creations lately. Maybe it's because I've been a little bit slow in updating the gallery section on my website, but worry not, it is all in hand and I'm hoping to have lots of lovely new photos of customer creations to show you very soon !
Just a quickie on the restock front - a had a rather large felty delivery the other day so the 10x10 inch squares and also wool roving are now completely restocked. I am also now holding small supplies of 1 metre square 4mm thick felt sheets in the same colours as the 10x10 inch squares. All 3-4mm thick, 100% wool and completely handmade - priced at £18 per square metre. Just give me a few days to get them loaded onto the site.
See you soon !
