I Love Baker's Twine.
It's great for all sorts of crafts...
and it comes in so many colours you can always find just what you need for a certain project
 the two tones are fabulous for adding a touch of colour

and the metallics add some sparkle :-)

I've been shopping!

Lots & lots of stock has arrived and I'm slowly unpacking, photographing and listing everything on the website....the first thing to arrive was a gingerbreadman die - and WOW did that slow down progress for a while!  I cut out a few to sew together and got Slightly Addicted to making Gingerbread Men Decorations....14 so far!
  these are BIG ginger's: 14cm tall x 11cm wide
 I used one of new felt colours for these: Mocha
but they are available in any colour you wish
 the die cuts cost 25p per piece (you need 2 to make a decoration) and the price gets lower the more you buy, which is a good thing because once you've made one you'll want to make more (and more!)
 You can see the listing on the website by clicking here but don't say I didn't warn you - you'll have your very own gingerbread man army in your craft room in no time at all :-)

Ribbons for Christmas

Some  times I forward order stock - I don't do it often because not all suppliers do that, but this ribbon was ordered waaaay back in February....I was a bit 'over' Christmas at that point but I could not resist these - and when I opened the delivery on Friday afternoon I was SUPER happy that I'd got my hands on these :-)
 there's lots of grey - my favourite base colour
 lots of cute (of course!)
 and lots of Christmas colours and characters
 the silver on these baubles is all sparkly :-)
All of them are just 40p a metre - Good huh?
you can see them all here

shop talk

Today we spent time prepping stock to fill up the we have more space there (and more stock!) we can fill up twice a week, rather than every other day - which is a lot more efficient ... It's amazing how different the fill-up list is every time....this time it was fabric, fabric & more fabric!!
It takes a lot of cutting, folding & packing but it looks lovely when it's done!! (these are photos in the workshop - they will be put in the shop after work tomorrow)
***our shop is within The Custom's House, West Bay, Dorset their website is HERE our shop will be there for the rest of this year (at least!) and they are open 7 days a week***
