always first in the queue!

Theres not much that would get me out of bed earlier than Raphael in the morning but the thought of snapping up a bargain and I am out the door! December is a great month for sample sales and two of the best are held annually at the beginning of the month.

Donna Wilson opened up her studios for her annual sale and there were plenty of bargains to be had! With discontinued stock and slight seconds for sale it is well worth making a note your diary! I managed to pick up a couple of her lambs wool blankets I have wanted for ages as well as a few treats for my baba!

Next, Alex Monroe. Held at his studio in the beautiful Iliffe yard it is perfect for picking up some christmas gifts or just to spoil yourself at bargain prices! I keep telling myself I have way to much jewellery but I cannot resist this sample sale and always manage to find something I love and this year was no exception!

To welcome in the festive season Rob Ryan has released a tea towel that you can either dry the dishes with or make in to a christmas stocking!

Being Raphael’s first christmas I am ubber excited so I decided to give it a go and make him his very own stocking which he can keep for years to come!

It was really simple to make just follow the online instructions on Rob Ryan’s blog spot and you can’t go wrong!

A perfect project for the evening……

The end result!
