Whoops! I am so late with this months post! in my defence it has been unbelievably busy here at WDS HQ!
First up I bought a new car…….
This is totally not the car that I went out to get, I was wedded to the idea of electric but it was just too expensive. Then there were nice cars but they didn’t come as automatic ( I can drive a manual, I just won’t!) so we ended up with this Nissan Juke which I love because it looks a bit like Batmans car that he takes to the supermarket! Thanks to Barnard and Brough (the oldest Nissan dealership in the country) for their usual marvellous service.
It was daughters birthday in March and also Mothers day, so we had a trip to London. We bought many books and ate much dim sum! my lovely girl bought me these…….
I haven’t seen cut orchids so years and the bunch she got me filled two vases 🙂
On to crafty matters, March was spent making stuff for the Paper Daisy Easter Market. I designed a few more patterns including this rose flower fairy…
and a spring time version of my baby unicorn…….
It was a fantastic day, here is a bit of my stall……
So onto the new standards! I am finally going to take the huge step of certifying my makes as child safe. I already ensure that I use safety filling and eyes and that yarns are baby safe, but this will make it official and allow me to put the CE mark on my makes.
Alongside that I would like to do some collectable and luxury versions intended for older children and grown ups, I am really looking for an excuse to use these yarns….
Aren’t they fab? made locally by the super talented Bryony from Spectrum Fibre and they are even more amazing in the flesh! I can just see some fairies and dragons and all sorts of magic creatures made in this.
Finally, thanks to everyone that ordered from me in the first part of the year, you really help me to reach higher and further than I ever thought possible.
Next Monday will be the official reopening for orders, so hit me with your toy requests and don’t forget I am now available for portrait requests ( or anything else that you need painted).
So its kisses from me and goodbye from them ….
