Craftco cushions Southwold

out and about

There is nothing nicer than a day out by the sea.


On Monday Grace and I took a trip to Southwold and delivered cushions to Craftco


I am a little over-excited to now have work displayed in two beautiful shops.


We then walked  for miles along Sizewell beach discussing matters of great importance,


forthcoming exams,  living by the sea, opening our own emporium before


a cup of tea here and home. Thank you Craftco.

Cold, delicately as the dark snow,
A fox’s nose touches twig, leaf;
Two eyes serve a movement, that now
And again now, and now, and now

family fundraising Kenya

can I mention…

In October Grace will be joining a group of students and staff from Ely Sixth Form College and travelling to Kenya for 10 days to support a charity funded school.  They will be building and decorating new classrooms, running multi-sports activities and cooking for children and assisting teachers.


In order to take part in this each person involved needs to raise £1500 to cover the costs of the trip.  Grace is planning a variety of fundraising activities – I don’t think she has booked a skydive yet; apparently it’s a height thing!


But she has set up an easyfundraising page where retailers will contribute a percentage of each online sale to charity.

So for those of you unable to  join her at the fantastic tea party planned for the summer, with cheese scones, Earl Grey, Jasmine and Jolly Good English do not worry, you are still able to contribute. Just click on this link  register, install the widget on your tool bar and treat yourself.

A sunny day at Hidcote.

Thank you xx
