Couldnt post yesterday as i forgot to re charge my camera battery until late and then we had to meet the girls for our Christmas Party Evening and it was a bit late when we got back.
Anyway here is the beautiful present that onr of our lovely customers has made us for our new house.
This is the front of the tag that was attached to the present.
And this was the message written on the back and as you can imagine we were really touched.
And here is the present that Kate had made for our new home isnt it just INCREDIBLE and my photography really doesnt do it justice.
Here is a close up of the bird house so that you can see all the work that has gone into it.
This is a close up of the hand felted bird at the top of the birdhouse.
And here is the hand felted bird at the bottom and notice both have hand stitched beads and feathers attached to their tails they are Fabulous.
Finally this is a pic showing the side view of the bird house so that you can see all the work that has gone into making the tiled roof.
Oh Kate thank you ever so much for this gorgeous house warming gift and we will find a spot for it where it can be admired not just by us but everyone who visits us too.
We are really blown away that you made something so beautiful for us and thank you from the bottom of our hearts xxxxxx.
Last night the girls who work with us in the shop and ourselves went for our annual Christmas meal and we had a great time.
Here is a pic of us all in the festive spirit.
We would like to say a big thank you to Di, Jean, Karen, Michelle and Anthea for all the hard work they do for us, we really couldnt do it all without you.
And i would like to say a really big thank you to them for everything they did for me when Gordon was ill at the beginning of the year I will always be so grateful and you are the best friends anyone could ever have xxxxxx.
Oh i bet you wonder where Harry was while we were out enjoying ourselves.
Harry was with his friend Oliver having a great Christmas Party of their own.
And Finally i bet you wonder if the back of the house got finished before Christmas? Well take a look at these pics i took tonight.
Yes they managed to do it and the weather here has been horrid all day with wind heavy rain and sleet, but they were determined to do it and weathered the storm Thank You Guys.
This is a view from inside of the back reception room looking towards the new windows.
And this is a view from the kitchen looking along the extension into the back reception room.
So the back of the house is almost finished. Theres some electric and plumbing things to put into the new ceiling and then the insulation will be done before it all gets plastered.
We will be going in and doing some painting over the holidays in the other rooms and then the kitchen and bathroom will all be installed next month.
I think we will be moving in between the end of February or the beginning of March and we are all starting to get really excited.
Well thats our news up to now and i have a some more Christmas cards to finish as there are still a few we have to deliver tomorrow and then we can have a breather.
I will try and get on before Christmas day if i have time if not We wish you all a Safe and Happy Christmas.
Love and Smiles Rob Gordon and Barnie ( who keeps sniffing at all his presents under the tree ) xxxxxx
