Thanks for popping in.
Well let me show you how I spent my evening yesterday.
Propping my head up.
But what is she doing?
Can you guess?
Signing the calendars.
One at a time.
Have you ever signed your name loads and loads of times
in quick succession?
You really have to concentrate!
Every now and then my mind would wander,
and I would do the cheque signing one
instead of the friendly arty calendar one!
That’s a lot of Calendars!
Nice cup of fruit tea.
Good for the soul…
Whose bright idea was it anyway, to sign the first 200 sold?!?!
I have to say it baffles me that somebody
would want my autograph. But I am also very flattered.
I remember many years ago, at Ally Pally Stitches,
10 years before I started on TV,
when I used to brayer away,
with landscapes, and reflections, and torn paper,
a woman came up to me and asked me for my autograph.
I laughed, and said,
“Why would you want my autograph?? I’m not famous!”
And she said,
“To me you are.”
So I shut up humbly, and learnt quickly to respect that.
Never forgot it either.
So the Calendars.
If you want to pick one up at the NEC,
we’ll have them with us.
And should you want me to sign it,
I shall smile gratefully and not hesitate.
Just like the lady taught me.
Happy to report that the first 200 were gone within 24 hours.
We had 1,000 printed and we still have about 400 left.
When they’re gone, that’s it.
So if you haven’t got one yet,
or you’re looking for a Christmas Present,
then pop along to the website and get yours today!
It’s a top quality thing, a cool collection of Bloggy Projects.
If you’ve already received yours,
tell us what you think.
Is it what you expected?
I do hope so!
I am always so busy, always chasing my tail,
always scrambling to meet magazine deadlines,
prepping TV shows, jumping from one job to another.
That’t why we haven’t had a calendar for a couple of years!
So at a very personal level, I am really chuffed we managed to get this one pushed through in October for the New Year.
I work with some very cool and competent people.
The proof is in the pudding.
Have a great weekend!
love and hugs,
