Folksy Winter Sampler 2011



It was just another day of making in the little craft room upstairs on a grey December day. I heard the familiar squeak and thud of a parcel slipping through the letter box and landing on the floor. It always gives me a little buzz as I am secretly addicted to online shopping. But it wasn't a squidgy bag of wool nor yet another pair of Addi Turbo Circular Knitting Needles (amazing invention – craft revelation!). It was a sleek brown envelope, indistinct, but it had big fat surprise inside. It was a letter from Folksy along with a quirky, colourful newspaper. I raced greedily through the pages devouring all the UK handmade loveliness when suddenly I froze. Gobsmacked. There it was. A half-page feature interview with – me! – was staring right back at me. Plus one of my cable knit headbands on another page, it was all too good to be true. What a lovely Christmas present from the wonderful folk at Folksy. And to top it off, the Folksy Winter Sampler 2011 is now available as a snazzy online version. Take a peek, there are so many goodies inside...
