off on a jolly

John and I popped up to Oxford Street to take a peek at my butterflies in situ and John snapped a few pics so I could show you.We saw my kits on the shelves, on the table under the display AND then, round the corner opposite the tills we found my Egg Cosies kit, one kit had been sewn up by someone at John Lewis .... I wondered if someone had taken a shine to the tortoise example, because he was nowhere to be found!


I made two sets of Butterfly bunting and John Lewis kindly sent me a photo of the other display, which is now hanging in the new Habby department of John Lewis Milton Keynes! I'm super-chuffed to be the first ever display at a new Habby department...Last year I didn't get the chance to see the other display I made (hedgehogs/foxes etc) so it felt good to take the time to see this one, it was so strange to travel up the escalators looking at all the items for sale, knowing that soon I would be seeing my things for sale on the shop floor...I had a beaming smile on my face once I had seen them!

Ooh! How long will the displays be up? We live near-ish Milton Keynes and will probably be in the shopping centre at some point in the next few weeks, I'll have to take a look. :)

Congratulations indeed - how thrilled you must be!
Thank you for my order - & craft kit :) - which arrived last week. I wonder how you manage to provide such a speedy service when you're so busy. You've inspired me to make my own 'display' to hang near the cot my little granddaughter has here! Hardly John Lewis but cute anyway!!
