That’s it……Christmas is coming.xx

Its been none stop this week in the Haberdashery.

But its been half term here in Derbyshire so I’ve had my little man to help me

AND it was his 10th birthday on Thursday. So me and hubby managed to book the afternoon off to spend as a family. Even though I love birthdays it is quite sad to see your little ones grow up isn’t?  But I’ve loved having him around to help me out.

So whats been happening this week….

Its been tremendously busy with customers new, old and people travelling from far and wide. We had a record amount of yarn sales, seems everyone is getting set for winter. We’ve met so many talented people of all ages. Here’s one of our young and talented……


I finished my quilt art/thread art. Loopy Sue set me a challenge do make a Tutankhamun, what do you think? I’m quite pleased with it, it’s not perfect but I think I’ve done ok!

Donations for the Hospice have been coming in thick and fast. All the decorations are gorgeous and the ladies have been working hard. I’m really grateful for everyone’s time and generosity. We have another month to go before we hand them over…….so keep up the good work ladies and gents.

Now are you ready to be bombarded with pics. We’ve had a fabric delivery and its topped us up nicely. Here’s most of them in all their glory. Cottons, poly cottons and muslins.

And halloween…did you have a good one. I hope you all dressed up for the occasion. But now Halloween’s been and gone it’s now time to get the haberdashery prepped for Christmas and we can’t wait (especially Mum).

It will be our first Christmas in our new home…..can’t wait. I’ll be posting pics of our Christmas window display very soon.

Yet again thank you all for your support. It’s lovely to see your makes. It’s defiantly the best part of my job as well as receiving your lovely comments and feedback.

Have a good weekend and we will see you again next week.

Oh and I hope you like the new look blog 🙂
