This is our new sign, beautifully photoshopped by Hannah. we spent the larger part of friday afternoon putting it all together, i made the T, the B and the u, Lucy did the r and a in watercolours and the e in applique, The C and t were done by Katie Parr, in gorgeous beading, really sparkles, the patchwork H is hannah's intricate work and the f by Jackie, rather cleverly it is a bag so we can always pop something in it when doing our fairs. Finally the small h was done by Ella and Olivia, Hannah's beautiful little girls 8 and 5 respectively. This is lovely and just adds to the beauty of our sign, thanks to everyone. Big thanks to Hannah for putting up with us wrecking your house and for the glass of wine, it definitely helped the creativity. It is now our new blog banner. I love it xx
I was so sorry to miss being on the stall today, the girls Jackie, Lucy, Penny, Amy all gathered together to make the most of the stall and as you can see they made it look absolutely unforgettable! The stall was colourful, bright, happy and friendly all perfect and i am so thrilled with how we all worked together to create such an eye catching stall. Our products were fabulous, it was just rather a shame that Exeter Craft Saturdays had not been so well publicised. Thanks guys for all your hard work. You are amazing!
