Out of the blue was contacted by Catherine of Gaelo Jewellery inviting me to join them in NEOS

If  you remember Catherine rescued Daryl and I during the bad winter weather when the back wheel came off the van !!!!
I had some of my work with me to deliver and over coffee whilst waiting for the garage ,Catherine  admired it and how delighted and flattered I was when I got her call at the end of last week.
A photo is required for the book , so deciding what to make at first threw me , however time being short I have chosen an old faithful :-------

This time done in red suede and coordinating wool plaid
and piping
with a hand made matching tassle.
It has to be photographed today and submitted before Tuesday !
Now only have to make lots of stock of different designs and fabrics .
Am sooo excited and bursting with ideas .
Daryl really happy too --- maybe all that fabric stash will now will come in to it's own and not clutter up the place !!!
Have a good weekend
