Springtime Display

Well at least the weather has changed and it's feeling far more spring like and we have been busy changing our display at Create to celebrate the new season!. Carol has been very busy with the knitting needles to create these extra cute ducks with various spring bonnets. We have got all the spring / summer yarns in which are fantastically bright. There are so many new shades that have arrived as well as some new lines from Sirdar, Sublime, Adriafil to name a few!! We have also just received some toy wool in small balls and very bright colours as we have got quite caught up with knitting some weird and wonderful items - will tell you more about Lyndy's shrimp in another blog!! We have also been painting up some pottery in jazzy colours to match the wool! This blackboard was painted by Emily S.

With the Easter holidays on at the moment it has been pretty busy here at Create. We luckily have got a lot of our existing staff back for the holidays from university (Nick, Rosie, Rose, Charlotte L, Emily R and Ellie). Miranda has managed to slot them all in so they at least have had day or so each working. From what I can gather they have had very busy social lives and now need to earn a bit of money. Anyway its been great having them around and catching up on the news.

Anyway better get that kiln on and firing those beautiful creations from this week!
