Hello everyone - remember me?

It has been a bit manic the last couple of weeks. I have been trying to organise several things at once - not a good idea when you have a brain like mine. After 30 odd years of pleasing myself when and what and where I found it quite a strain to be tied down to regular hours and I also found it quite tiring.

The opening day went very well and lots of friends and well wishers turned up. I had lots of Good Luck cards and Lynne and Carol gave me a lovely bunch of flowers. Thank you both for those.

 Lynn made a banner and it is still hanging in the shop. The cards are on the wall for all to see and I really ought to take a photo of them. The local paper turned up and took a photo of me and Anita outside the shop. We had to stand in a VERY friendly fashion, lol, grinning like a couple of idiots, but to date it hasn't been in the paper.

If I have learned one thing over the last couple of weeks it is that I am in the wrong business.:) I have had numerous requests for knicker elastic, cotton, pins, wool etc etc. I shall have to organise a small stock of these items - not the wool as I need too much space to stock these.

I have been given so many examples of things for display. Everyone has been so kind and helpful. I have had cards made with the things I sell, from Sy, Lynn, Linda, Liz, and Sue and Anita has made a beautiful heart, from a polystyrene shape that I have in the shop. She has completely covered it in sequins and put some flowers and ribbon at the top. it is stunning. I tried to take a picture to post here but my camera battery was dead so i shall have to add that at a later date, Chris the jewellery maker has made a hanging ornament from bugle beads that I havefor sale, a work of art which must have taken her hours,  and when I change the window I shall be hanging this up.

Thank you everyone for your support.
