Robins with a Red Breast

I’ve just finished putting up the Christmas decorations in the shop. I’m almost the last shop in the town to put them up but I wanted some robins for my display. I have been all over the place to find robins with a red breast. I know what other colour could they possibly have? Well I’ve seen grey & brown! I do like to make my own decorations so I thought I would give it a go.

We managed to get some scented pine cones from the local garden centre & a few bits of old felt carefully arranged & there you go. They smell nice as well as being cute. I finished up covered in glue but it was worth it. What do you think?

I’ve made sure that the shop looks good for the open day we are having on Saturday 5th December. We will be open from 10am – 1pm so you can get all the fabrics & trimmings you need for that last minute Christmas or New Year outfit. All the latest fabrics will be available for you to look at, stroke & buy to take home with you. There will be tea coffee & homemade mince pies for you to enjoy whilst you make up your mind what to buy. I usually find mince pies make you buy more!! Whatever you do, don’t eat any more than 6 of my mince pies as I make my own mincemeat & it has apple brandy in it. Any more than 6 & you could be over the drink drive limit!

I look forward to seeing as many of you as possible on 5th December.
