A Busy Time

We have had a very busy couple of weeks in the shop, culminating in a stand at the Textiles In Focus Show at Cottenham. The show is organised by Pauline Verrinder; it went off very smoothly and was a real credit to her. The textile exhibition was fantastic, unfortunately I didn't take any photos but all those that took part in it are very talented.

Ladies from the Fibrefusion group were selling these little Jute bags in a wide range of colours and I just couldn't resist them, buying five in total. The bags were plain and I have added the decoration. Nothing complicated, a few suffolk puffs, buttons, beads and twill tape. They make nice little gifts.

The pink one for myself.

The orange one for Barbara with bells so we can hear her coming because there's no harm in a little warning!

Blue for Sam, who had a birthday today.

Pam's was yellow.

And last but not least a purple one for Stephanie.

A group photo of five old bags!

Stephanie had another visit to the doctor today for the results of last weeks blood test which showed a slight improvement in what the doctor was looking for but not enough. She now has a hospital  appointment on 23rd March in London. She is still suffering with very bad headaches but seems to be coping fairly well. Another 6-8 weeks and Nick should be home, I'm sure that will go a long way to making her feel better.

What a lovely group of old bags (although they look new to me!) Glad there is some improvement for Stephanie. Let's hope they sort her out soon.

Well done - the five I bought last year are still in their original state - although I'm not sure of their current location!
Hope your baby is better soon xx

The bags are lovely and thank you soo much for the bright sunny yellow one - it is such a cheerful colour. Good job that Barbara's has the bell gives us fair warning of her arrival! Steph is in good hands and you are really looking after her but it will be lovely to have her well again.

Thank you so much for my bag it really is lovely and i will make good use of it. Do not understand why you would want warning of my arrival I am so quiet and hardworking you never know I am around! Hope Steph is better soon xx
