So regular readers of my blog know that, as well as doing crochet design work, this year I set up the company for creative folk called Dear Ewe. Well I felt that I just wanted to share our first product review by the lovely Canadian crochet designer and blogger Pam (aka Sincerely Pam).
We know that people like to hear about products from actual people, so we are very excited to have received such a lovely review from Pam. As a new business it obviously means the world to us that people like our products!
You can read Pam’s full product review posthere– and excitingly you could enter her prize draw to win your very ownTriangle Chart mug. Entries for the giveaway are direct through Pam’s blog – winner will be selected on October 24, 2018.
We were also delighted to be part of her Makers Maven series with an interview where we shared a bit more about us and how Dear Ewe got started.
You can read the full interviewhereand learn how gin was an integral part of the beginning of Dear Ewe and how Becky and I work together as a team as well as being friends.
Every day until the 12th December one of the fabulous designers (below) are holding a ‘that day only’ specific sale – but like an advent calendar who knows which designer will be on which day…well I can tell you one of them will be me! Make sure you check out my Facebook page and the pages below to keep up to speed with the discount details; this is a sale you really don’t want to miss out on!
Cue Abba’sSlipping Through my Fingerand me hiding my tears;Little G started BIG school last week! This is a humongous deal for both of us! Though I’m sure that Little G will take everything in her stride – she’s a happy, sociable child who loves to learn so I’m pretty sure she is going to adore everything about school.
How I feel about it all is a bit different…I’m happy for her, for this next part of her life, she is excited about it and I want her to keep that feeling rather than her dread going each day. However, she’s only four and a half which I know is a normal age but it just seems so young – she looks so tiny in her proper uniform! I gaze around me in bewilderment at times alarmed at the accelerated manner in which we seem to have got to this point. I look at her beautiful little face and see her as a baby; blink my eyes and there she is; long limbed and bouncing around like a colt ready to explore the meadow. As she is my one and only it also feels to me like this is the official end of her ‘baby’ years, the end of Mummy days together on a Friday – the end of an era!! I can’t help but be sad about that – but remaining positive I’ll now have about 5 hours on a Friday to catch up on all things crochet.
The nursery that she’s attended since she was 10 months old has been such a big part of our lives for the last 4 years. It’s been a brilliant place for all of us and Little G has loved every minute that she’s attended there. So I wanted to gift something special; I knew that I wanted it to be fun and, as there’s nothing better than a handmade gift in my eyes, I knew I wanted it to be something I made for them. In the end I decided on a cushion for the Pre-School story corner, Little G loves to read books so it seemed appropriate.
