We were careful not to state how we felt about it, but just asked people whether they were for or against and to sign the form.
So far we have had in the region of some back. A spreadsheet was drawn up for the first batch of over and was handed in to the Parish Council who in turn sent in to West Sussex. When we do, we will ensure it is published into our windows. It really needs as many people as possible to go along and see what is proposed and then put their comments to West Sussex.
The buses have said they will not come to the village. There are other endless implications to this, minutes delay for a fire engine to reach your property in the event of a serious fire, could be the difference between putting the fire out or losing the house, it could even result in death. Its all quite horrendous, considering the options. It is really important. Those of you who have visited the shop over the last month, may have found the girls busy knitting and taking full advantage of me not being there on those days!
Only one customer has actually reported them to me!! Look at the results though. Most of the items have been going in the widow to demonstrate what the finished products look like and also to show how the various toys knit up. They have been really busy knitting up all the Christmas bits with the tinsel wool which we all love and now they are starting on some of the Jean Greenhowe designs. It is really getting quite exciting. There is a picture of the actual book and if you click on that, you get pictures of all or most of the designs which are in the book. I am getting quite excited about it all.
Some of the designs are so impressive and even though some of these book s have been around for many years, they still seem to be as popular as ever, and I can see why.
If you ever need to phone for directions to us, ask for me! The other day Pat was asking a customer if she knew where a certain person lived. On the way home he stopped at the hardware store and bought a bucket and a litre of paint.
He then stopped by the feed store and picked up a couple of chickens and a goose. However, struggling outside the store he now had a problem — how to carry his entire purchases home. While he was scratching his head he was approached by a little old lady who told him she was lost. How in the world could I possibly hold you up against the wall and do that? I read it out loud and not much work got done for a good 15 mins after.

So much easier to see and handle and a much nicer finished product. Good for hair bands, mug hugs, table mats — the choice is quite endless. I realised last week that we had sticky back felt in the shop in various colours, so treated myself to some and have now relined the backs of all the table mats! Curtain tape, has some even higher discounts, so well worth checking out.
We are clearing out various beads to make room for new stock. There are still quite a few to choose from so do have a look when you are next in. She told him she was writing a story. A 6-year-old was asked where his grandma lived. We learned how to make babies today. Putting pictures of all our products onto the new website is proving an invaluable exercise. There are so many items from our suppliers that we had no idea they could supply, that Karen and I have been getting so excited at seeing and keep calling the other one over to look and check out.
It will be so good to get all this out to everyone. All I need you to do is step into this room right here, strip to the waist, then slip on this gown. Everything clear? Can you stand on your tippy toes and lean in a tad so we can get everything?

I was freezing, bruised, and out of air, so why not use the remaining circulation in my legs and neck to finish me off? My body was in a holding pattern that defied gravity with my other breast wedged between those two 4 inch pieces of square glass when I heard and felt a zap!
She disappeared. Two hours later, Belinda breezes in wearing a sheepish grin. The power came back on and I totally forgot about you!

And silly me, I went to lunch. Are we upset? And that, Your Honour, is exactly how her head ended up between the clamps…. Many of you have been asking for the paper shapes used in quilting, and we are now delighted to tell you that we have some of these in stock. A lovely multi coloured double knit in warm Autumn colours — patterns are all in stock, but this knits to any double knit pattern. There are lots of new bits and pieces coming in for Christmas as well, so please keep popping in to check what the latest arrivals are.
Lots of Chunkies and super chunkies in preparation for a cold winter, which is being promised this year, and a most gorgeous double knitting vintage wool — only 3 shades but must be seen to be appreciated. Talking of Christmas, with huge amounts of fingers crossed, there will be a traders Christmas evening again this year. The date will be Wednesday 7 th December, so a wee bit earlier to avoid clashing with other things going on.
We would also like to remind people that Christmas tends to be a very busy time for framing and although we have two framers working pretty well flat out, we would ask any of you thinking of getting something framed particularly for Christmas, not to leave it till the last moment. Thank you. Please keep checking in on our facebook account and like as much as you can and we will let you know as soon as the new website is up and running.
This just leaves us to thank everyone for their support over the last year and to wish you all good health for the rest of this year and the coming years.

My wonderful wife is the main organiser of our Christmas night and has been for the past 18 or 19 years! Please never ask me where the memory wire is, cant remember! More reading here. I gave it a very traditional treatment, a washline triple mount with an outer line of pure gold leaf. It just takes a steady hand and a bit of an eye for colour and design.

Tradition meets modern here though; as we also have a computerised mount cutter and can do stuff like this. We like things to be held in place, therefore easy to remove and remaining in the same condition. So, a circle of foam centred board was cut to fit perfectly inside the drum head, this had a circle of mount board fixed to it the same colour as the backing mount board.
The assembly was fixed to the mounting board and the drum head simply slipped tightly over it. Again, no adhesives, ever, not self-adhesive board, not carpet tape, nothing sticky. We pride ourselves on the ability to mount most anything, be it two or three-dimensional with either no adhesive in contact or no adhesive, period, as they say across the pond, where much of my framing education comes from. Even these cards were done with no adhesive, we used what is called a platform mount — well, 50 or so of them actually — apertures just one millimetre larger than the cards are cut out of the backing mount, this is pasted with Japanese wheat starch paste, to the multi-opening front mount, the cards are then dropped in to the apertures and the fall-outs are placed back in.
This is not only the most reversible method there is but also makes things very easy, otherwise lining that lot up would be a nightmare. The other good thing about it is that to the best of my knowledge no other framer in UK, unless they heard about it from me, knows the method!

We now have a policy of phoning people when their frames are done. We used to say we will not ring unless there is a problem, your frame will be ready on …. So now we ring everyone and if they are not there we will always where possible leave a message on the answerphone or voice mail. Note from Pat — John never checks his voicemail. He seems to always have is phone on silent and then complains that he never gets any calls!
Secretly, I think he is trying to get a new phone! Can I just ask everyone a huge favour? Those of you who are planning to put Christmas Lights outside your properties next year, please can you avoid anything blue and flashing? I really appreciate your co-operation and understanding going into the Festive Season……..
