At the end of March I will be running a crafty workshop for the Bath WI. We will be making pincushions in teacups (and flower pots), so I have been busy designing and making some samples to take to the WI on Wednesday so people will have an idea of what we will be making.
With a shed load of Christmas craft markets coming up, I could do with some little elf helpers! As the house fills with Christmas goodies I am already feeling festive…just hope it doesn’t wear off before Christmas! All available to buy or to order in my Christmas shop.
Of course you can come along to one of my Christmas stalls – Friday 21st Nov Yatton Keynell Village Hall (2pm to 4pm), Saturday 29th Nov King Edward’s School, Bath and Saturday 6th Dec Bath Central Library.
This year you could be wearing a Deerey Me creation…brooches and earrings!
Of course you can dress your Christmas tree too!
…and don’t forget Christmas cards!
Last but not least, it was my mum’s 80th birthday last week…she got a round of applause and and a birthday cupcake at the Pump Room on the day and then a family get together at the weekend. Happy birthday (again) Mum!
I have been terrible slack at posting…sorry! Between our holiday in Guernsey…

..and the Bath WI and our garden party…
…my work has suffered. This week I will be getting back on track, ready for my stall at Yatton Keynell next Saturday. I am also going to be adding custom-made luggage tags to my repertoire after having made one for Mark:
…and I am going to put a felt flower tutorial in my next newsletter, after receiving such nice comments on the name badges I made the Bath WI committee members:
Just a quick note on felt – it should be wool; it should feel thick and strong and luscious; it should not be shiny and artificial. There are lost of suppliers around, but now only buy from Cloud Craft as the quality is so good, Nicole provides a EN71-3 certificate which means it is good for noses for toy mice and Nicole also posts it so quickly you can get right on with your project.
