Hello friends

The very first Coffee and Create went very well and here
are some of the boxes created by Sarah, Sarah's Mum and Sandra...

We used Square Petal Top Box with white card.  In the felt we used Spiral Blossom Three
and Bitty Blossoms.
All very beautiful - thank you ladies.

The Pom Pom makers were brilliant fun and I've taken note of the
request to do a tutorial/video for the heart shape maker -
watch this space.
I'm not actually stocking the Pom Pom makers but now wondering whether I
should - what do we think??

I've teased you just a incy wincy little bit about February's Charity Kit,
I haven't teased you nearly enough!
To remedy that situation here is a sneak peek!
So it looks a little grey and boring but not for long...
here's a another tease...
I'm working on making it beautiful and sharing with you all the instructions,
photos and more.

The kit project is my design, I arranged for a company to create it from scratch and my
terrible drawings! It went through a few modifications until I was happy with it,
hence the delay!
It will be released for trade purchase at Stitches (the trade show in Birmingham) but because
it is my design I am able to get my hands on it earlier - which ultimately means
all my lovely blog followers get to have it early too!

As mentioned, it is a larger Charity Kit than normal which means it will
be February/March Kit - hoping to raise lots of pennies for my two worthy

I've already given away far too many details, but I'm really rather excited about
this kit and hopefully it has you all intrigued :)

Yesterday marked the 10th Anniversary of Facebook - wow - that went quickly!
Facebook automatically created a little video from everyone's account using various
photos, most 'liked' posts etc.
Here is mine - I'm quite happy with their selection!
Thank you Facebook.

Take care friends - back very soon!

Glad you had a fabulous day. Loved the ladies makes they all are stunning. So looking forward to your new charity make. Have a great day xx hazel p.s stock the pom pom makers as I expect as you have them on display people will be wanting to create something similar to your pom pom bunting and Hirsty Allsop has made it very popular again they always sell out on create and craft.

Lovely project ladies, well done. Bet you had a great time.
Your facebook video was lovely too.

Love the little boxes Christine, they are soooo pretty.

If facebook have done a video from mine, it will be very short. I hate it and only joined so I could follow my brother's F page. There is virtually nothing in mine - I dislike the system, and REALLY dislike how much people can find out about you, so there isn't much on mine.

Jean Z said...

Hi Christine, Love the boxes your ladies made and glad everything went well. all my love Jean Z xx
