Now the Christmas Fayre is over Toby has sorted through all his jewellery, ready to take to the shops. This is where I come in, carrier pigeon? no, Penny's taxi service!!

Yesterday we took a range of earrings to one shop, and 'The Orb Collection' Toby's new sterling silver range we showed you before, to another. This afternoon I drove Toby to Hebden Bridge for an appointment with Spirals, who took lots of his work, including some felt and button bracelets, which they really liked, and wanted more! (see above). On Saturday he delivers his felt dangly brooches to another shop, and on Sunday Laurence is driving us all to Bradford for a curry, and on the way, another delivery to a gallery in Thornton.

There are still a few more pieces to sort out, a couple of possible new outlets, but most of it will be done this week. Phew! wish he did have a carrier pigeon ! The pigeon above, by the way, is a present from Caroline, if you havent visited her blog yet, pop over, have a look, do some Christmas shopping perhaps - she makes some lovely things:

Sounds like Toby is very successful at the moment. I quite simply adore these bracelets, sadly I also know that I would never wear one. I wish I wasn't so lazy when it comes to adorning myself with jewels, buttons and beads because I do so love them all. Enjoy your curry !
