And the winner is............................


Well done Twinny,
sorry to everyone who didn't get picked out.

It's good to give some good news first,
yesterday was such a mixed bag.
We organised our first Christmas Market,
which was really good.
The weather was awful for driving
so we were pleased with the turn out.
If anyone who came is reading this,
thank you so much, we really do appreciate
people supporting us, stall holders,
helpers and customers.

Now I need to load some new goodies onto
my blogshop.
I was chuffed with the response to my stars,
one lady stall holder, who makes beautiful quilts,
bought a star and had to ask where I'd joined the seam.
She couldn't see the join!!!
Anyway, some stars are going on, along with
some snowy people and bunting.
And I'll do my very best to
post any purchases asap.

The down side of yesterday is that my husband
will be finishing work at Christmas,
and as he's the sole earner things
will be tough for a while.
I can't say it was totally unexpected,
though it's never good to hear.
So it looks like I am going to have to work
through my stash and spend less *doh*

With love and blessings in Christ

Glad to hear the market went well Elaine and so sorry to hear about hubby's bad news especially so near to Christmas .... we are waiting to hear about the 350 redundancies at hubby's work too but we got through the 80s recession so we can do this again. Have a good weekend x

Well done Twinny and I'm pleased the market went well for you despite the weather. So sorry to hear about hubbys job. Why do they always lay off people just before Christmas? Just doesn't seem very fair does it.

Have a lovely weekend BM. Will be visiting your shop later ;-)
