phew.....


Well we had a busy, hot and rewarding day yesterday. Thanks to all those brave souls who came out in the heat and took advantage of our special sale day. We were up at 6am to set everything out and here is our transformed back garden all set to go. As you can see, a lot of our garden stayed bathed in shade (the sun of course moved around as is its want) but generally it was as good as you will get with the weather we are having and there were even a few light zephyrs wafting in and out.

Customers taking advantage of our good deals for the day. Same place about the same time next year. At least we knew it wouldn't rain.... In the middle hanging under our umbrella we had coathangers full of silk thread for a fantastic price. I am amazed they weren't all grabbed up.

After 3pm we cleared everything away and order was restored and we moved indoors into the air con to watch the rugby with a glass of wine in hand. Then we both slept very well through the night.

Now we have to start on the many orders our lovely newsletter readers emailed in for the sorry you can't be here in person deal.....

Hi Dale - just wanted to say a big thankyou for the Holey Moley bag of goodies that was awaiting me on my return home from work this weekend - thankyou for your generosity - it was such fun to open!! (and now play). Would have loved to come down for your sale but glad to read it went well - thanks again

Wish I was there to snap up the silk threads - were they very long threads ie, could one knit with them? Glad it all went well - a beautiful 24 in Meander, Tas. Miss the rugby though.

So glad it all went well - I was thinking of you yesterday :-)

Your outdoor shop looked very inviting and I'm glad the day went well. I'd have been tempted by some of those silk threads. So much work goes into a day like that - no wonder you both slept well.
