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.
