Anyway, also to say that it looks like I did fairly well at Country Living, sold quite a bit. Apparently Helena Bonham Carter bought a Love Bunny and I am extremely pleased about that - so Thank You.
I've always admired HBC's quirkiness and also she is married to one of my heroes, Tim Burton, so I am extremely chuffed that she liked my bunnies :-)

In the world of Woo, what has been going on? Well, busy, busy. Have finally managed to tidy up my workroom after the chaos of all the love bunnies, and it is all tidy now, but I can't face going in there right now. Mr Devil very kindly bought me a lovely new Sewing Machine which I haven't even had time to test out yet (how ungrateful!). I am aiming to do that on Sunday. Saturday is Country Living Fair. I am looking forward to going as I have not been before but Saturday afternoon will probably be mega-crowded and you only get 4 hours to look round. I think the tickets should be cheaper for the afternoon as you only get 4 hours and not all day.....I am turning into a grumpy old woman. Actually I've been like that since I was about 15.
Anyway apart from that, we are having a dilemma on what to do with one of our rooms, we fondly refer to it as 'The Judith Chalmers Suite'. That's because everything in it is orange - the carpets, the walls, the bizarre inbuilt window seat. This house is lovely but the landlord admitted himself that he'd lost the plot by the time he got to this room. He decided to panel it and refer to it as the Smoking Room, but whilst he has used nice Oak for the struts , the panels are plywood......yes.....and orange.......in the bay there is a horseshoe shaped seating thing which reminds me of a 1970's caravan. The carpet is also orange.
It's got a fabulously huge open fire but the room is just too much and as it's rented we're loath to spend too much but we're wasting it. We're thinking we might paint the panels in a dark red and then re-upholster the horseshoe, but even then I'm not convinced. Any suggestions???
Christmas is coming and we've had the usual family stress about who is going where. I hate it. I really wanted to go away this year but maybe next year....
Well, that is my rant finished. I hope you're not asleep with boredom - if indeed anyone has read it!
Things to look forward to: Bill Bailey Live on 27th and next week going to the Theatre here to see 'An Ideal Husband' so am looking forward to that. Oh and of course, The Mighty Boosh. ALthough - did you know you can watch the first episode on the BBC3 website already? Eels, eels, eels, eels.........
Ta Ta for now.

That is presuming that someone actually has missed me!!
I have been so busy at work, and also busy sewing. Today was my deadline for the Country Living Fair stuff. I can tell you, my fingers are sore, and I need a good nights sleep.
I have delivered everything to Made in Hastings now, except for some little monster keyrings which I am taking on Sunday (had a bit of an accident with them, so have to make some of them again).
Here are my plethora of Love Bunnies:
They are all so cute, I hope they go to good homes.
Is anyone going to the Country Living Fair on Saturday afternoon?
Also, I am very behind on my emails and will catch up this weekend (Gigibird), so apologies.
Hope everyone is well and I am really looking forward to a weekend off to catch up on my blog reading and also having a weekend that means I can go out instead of sewing/working!!!!!
Ta ta for now.
