1 down – 2 to go!

Hi there.

Thanks for popping in.

What a beautiful day! But despite the fabulous sunny weather, many of you DID stay in and cheer, and Tina had a super successful Book Launch this afternoon on HOCHANDA. Thank you so much for tuning in, supporting and investing in us! Tina went home tired but happy that all the hard work had paid off. The new Grid books are very very lovely, and so packed with design ideas!

Paul came over to Peterborough from a Demo Day at Colemans, and after an early supper we are being lazy, drinking tea and eating chocolate!! Thanks Roz xx

Here are a couple of lovely samples which our good friend Emma Burns in Scotland sent in for the show. So delightful!

But if you’ll forgive me, I just need to stop for an hour, and chillax. Tomorrow’s a big day! Brand new stamps on TV at 2-4 pm. Then a bumper launch of our new FreshCut dies.

They really are the cat’s whiskers!

The bee’s knees!

The dog’s ummmmmm The dog’s pyjamas!

(Haha! You thought I was going to say something else, didn’t ya?! Paul wouldn’t let me).


Love & Hugs,

    Only caught one show today but Tina was brilliant and the samples were stunning. I’m glad she did so well. I hope she manages to mend the hole in her top! Enjoy your chocolate and chillax, you do make me laugh.

  8. Evening bloggy friends, lovely sunny day today was able to do some reading in the garden between the shows, what bliss! So who is going to come round to smack my hand when I try to order????? 😂😂xx

    1. Hi Donna,
      I might have to come and sit with you and then we can make sure we sit on our hands! I spent a bit of time in between shows in the garden listening to a book – only trouble was it was so soothing that I dozed off and woke up several chapters later & now have to try to find my place again!! Love and hugs Alison xxx

  11. Hi Barb,
    Lovely to see Tina back on our screens again and with such fabulous products. She did so well too. I felt so sorry for her when she discovered the hole in her tshirt! It just kept niggling at her,bless her. I’m really pleased that the books sold so well. The samples were just awesome I must say. Can’t wait for mine to arrive so I can play – they will be accompanying me to hospital when I’ll have plenty of time on my hands. Looking forward to your shows tomorrow – recorder set already. Love and hugs Alison xxx

  12. Hi bloggy friends,
    Hope you’ve all enjoyed some lovely sunshine today. Been beautiful here today. Really enjoyed the shows and looking forward to tomorrow’s. sending love and hugs to you all, Alison xxx

  13. Hi Barbara,
    Lovely to see Tina back on screen, she is fantastic and we have all really missed her skills and tips, she makes it look so easy. I can never resist her new products.

  14. Great shows, I think I might try Tina’s method of cutting to see how I get on. Hopefully one day my picot cutting will look nicer than what the dog chewed. 😂. I have tried several methods but nothing has worked so far. I have ordered the new books anyway. Look forward to the shows tomorrow. Have a great day.

  15. Tina did so well. Please congratulate her for me 😘
    I look forward to the shows tomorrow. I am particularly looking forward to the dies. Can’t afford to buy anything at the moment because of NYC but I have started a list 😂🤣. Love always, Ruth xxx

  16. Brilliant shows today from Tina, lovely samples from design team. More things to add to my wish list. xx

  17. Fabulous shows, going to watch them all again 😀. Looking forward to yours……it’s my birthday next week so must be able to spoil myself 🤣🤣

  18. Hello Barb, I only managed to catch a bit of one of the shows (sunshine = sort out the garden), but all recorded to catch up on later. From the comments it was a cracking show and Tina was on top form. Love Emma’s samples. Looking forward to todays shows too, will have to coincide them with doing lunch 🙂 Take care and have a lovely day everyone. Bx

  19. Agree – Tina did a wonderful job yesterday, so inspirational. I was naughty though and ordered the new books and new plates. Looking forward to the shows today now with Barbara and seeing the new dies!

  20. Tina did so well, must have been a bit nerve racking for her. I did buy the books of course. I love grid work could sit all day and do it. Loved the plates as well but just bought one as I know there is lots more on offer in the Sunday shows. Hope you get a good night’s sleep and will be watching tomorrow. xx
