Time for another Handmade Monday! I think each week that I have plenty of time to get prepared for the next one, only to find they come tapping you on the back far quicker than you imagine!
Thank you for to those of you who commented last week on A Kidsilk Haze Experience. The shopping trip was not very successful although I did find a decent bra! (whispers quietly so only ladies hear!) I think you'll know what I mean, finding one that fits is like looking for a needle in a haystack! We found that within the first half hour but unfortunately it went down hill from there. Although, it was lovely to spend a complete day with the youngest of my lovely daughters :)
Well, I may have mentioned this before but it is getting closer now so thought I'd do a quick post about it.
We have a new Hobbycraft Store opening very near to us, so in this neck of the woods it is quite exciting as our nearest store would be Bristol, about an hour and a half away.
Where does Fiddly Fingers come in? On the Sunday I will have my own bit of space in the store from which to promote my workshops and sell my huge balls of yarn and huge hooks. I'm rather excited as it will mean a ready made audience of like minded crafters.
I am busy getting ready at the moment. Made the gloves that you saw last week for the display and am just starting a slouchy hat from the same book in Rowan Cocoon an 80% merino wool and 20% kid mohair blend. It's wonderfully soft. I'm making signs for Fiddly Fingers so people know who I am and signs to let everyone know what workshops I'm doing. If anyone here is interested you can find them all on the Workshops page. I need to wind some more balls of wool as well, it's so difficult to know how many to take with me. All this and I'm still not sure what size space I will have which makes it all the more difficult to plan. Oooh and of course Chester will be coming with me! He will be the star of the show, I'm sure!
I'm also going to run some workshops in store over the coming months. Not sure what they will be yet, but what a great opportunity! Probably will run them for about 2 hours at a time. Any suggestions on what we could make? Can be crochet or crafts of any kind really but I would like people to be able to achieve something to take home with them within that 2 hours.
I'll update you next week with a few pictures and let you know how I get on. I may be a bit late posting on Handmade Monday next week but I'll do my best, so don't forget to wait for me!!!
Off to my eldest daughter's graduation tomorrow so may have a picture or two for you.
Hope you all have a very good week, I can see a bit of sunshine outside now so I'm going to make the most of it. Bye for now! See you soon.
