3 out of the ordinary orders!

yesterday I sent Jayne from The Stitching Shed (hi Jayne *wave*) another 100 owls  in pieces.  Each one is destined to be part of one of her lovely cross stitch kits.
I also sent this big pile of felt to a crafting magazine - this lovely lot is destined to be made into a top secret project for the front cover in April/May...I'll be sure to show you when I have a copy in my hands, not sure how top secret it is so I'm keeping quiet which magazine it is for...
and on Monday I will be sending 65 Baby Elephants (which I finished today) to another customer...I *think* they will be used on a set of baby announcement cards, but I'm not sure if I've put 2and 2 together and come up with my own answer to the 'what will you be doing with all those elephants' question :-)

this week's stats

this week will always be known as 'the week of parcels'
over the past five days we have sent out 32 sacks containing 476 parcels!
no wonder we're all a bit tired!
we have also caught up with everything and our normal super-quick service will resume on Monday, no more dispatching delays here....I have a few more handmade orders to finish off over the weekend, but apart from that we are back on track!
thank you for your patience :-)
