Grey Saturday Chr*stmas Fair

Not been trampled in a Black Friday orgy of LCD TV-mania? CHECK!

Been paid? CHECK!

Need a Happy Bottom ©? CHECK!

Live in Bristol? CHECK!

Have friends/relatives/ a pet/ under-rated co-worker? CHECK!

Then I TOTALLY know what you need to be doing tomorrow. Made In Bristol’s Craft Fair is on from, I dunno, about 10 in the morning til about 4 ish, depending on the ley lines etc. in the foyer at The Colston Hall. It’s free to get in but if spotted, I might not let you leave without my crack squadron of pickpockets relieving you of your heard-earned pennies. Bring your pennies and your bo-squiddlies and your paypal deets cos you NEED to SHOP LOCALLY this Christmas. It’s what Santa would want, (spoiler alert) if he ACTUALLY EXISTED.

I will be there, flogging some cushiony things and my new Ercols. Come and marvel at my stitching and the bags under my eyes.

LOVE YOU GUYS (might’ve been in the workshop too long).

PS Every purchase gets a FREE BESPOKE PAPER BAG. Does my generosity KNOW NO BOUNDS?

Freelance Fridays

I love my job. I know, I’m a lucky gal. I ESPECIALLY love Fridays. As a freelancer I get, well, no holiday pay. No sick pay. No guaranteed income. No pension. None of that. But, on the plus side, on a sunny Friday, I can go ‘sod it’ and put away the chaises I’ve been working on all week (more of that later) and do my own thing. This Friday, I ‘refreshed my shop offering’. Sorry to be talking like some pr*ick out of The Apprentice, but all that means is, I tarted up some cushions and posted them. This is in anticipation of Chr*stmas Craft Fairs and pressie buying. You, my Dear Reader, can beat the rush.

I think I can safely GUARANTEE* these cushions have cloud-repelling properties and will keep you happy as the nights draw in.

Straight out of the sweatshop- a new cushion. Actually more of an icebox than a sweatshop. The sooner I can train my boy to operate a sewing machine, the faster you’ll get your piped products.

I’ll be doing a cocktail chair in a variant of this in the New Year. *hops from foot to foot*

Phewee.

Those are shifting very nicely. Don’t worry if the one you want sells out- just get in touch and I’ll see if I can make you up another. Obviously, the best way to avoid disappointment is to BUY THEM NOW.

World of Cushions

Uh Oh. It’s that time of year. I’ve gone a bit mental with the piping foot and spoonflower leftovers. If you are the last person left in the UK who doesn’t have enough cushions in your life, well, I think I’ve just SAVED YOUR LIFE AND THE LIFE OF YOUR POOR BOTTOM/LOWER BACK. No need to thank me. Just press the buy-it-now button and improve the quality of your loafing by about 80%.

Guaranteed elf-free.
