Ohh my, I bet you’ve all been wondering where I have been and why I have been so quiet… well I’ve been given a fantastic commission from Lynn at Doodly Birds for Christmas orders for bunting… Nine of them!
I’m delighted to say the least and I’m open for any other orders if you wish.. just write to me here.
So due to my little demand I persuaded Richard that we needed to buy a hot glue gun. I’m in heaven with it.
The speed I can glue my flowers on my finials, including beads and sequins is brilliant.
I got mine for £16.99 from Staples including 2 glue sticks .. its a Loctite PXP 12.. Honestly for you girls that are perhaps into your card making or embellishments, it’s a must have item for the Santa list. It will save you hours of work and sewing. A great idea for my future wreath making as I find that pins can be a little risky with young children about.
Talking of which, Alex has been really enjoying his new placement at Day Centre.. he’s learning so many new things and has taken to jogging too! I’m totally amazed at the skills of the people who work with him. Its an amazing place with great facilities, right in the heart of the Cardiff Bay development.. where you’ll find one of these!
I love them but they spook Richard which I find hilarious.. and I’m convinced they are the right answer to a great source of planet saving energy.
But finally…I must not forget to thank My Mate Mo for a donation of a HUGE bag of yarns. THANK YOU MO… the girls were thrilled when they got them last night and I’m pleased to say that June is doing a great job of getting new members too.
June has chosen to create a KAL/CAL to make toys for the children’s unit.. We’ve chosen The Muppets and The Clangers… and here are the beginnings of my Elmo.
He’s adorable and the big red ball of wool is one of Mo’s with the plan to make many more to donate.
I also have to give a personal thanks to Mo as I was allowed to select few yarns for myself too.. so I’ve kept a few ball ends to perhaps make a little bunting for her when “the little grand person” arrives on the scene…
Funny how I went for the pinks and lavenders… hmmm I wonder.
So, here’s to perhaps a more restful weekend to come.
Sending you all my bestest of everything.
