Celebrating 50 years of Doctor Who!

A friend of mine is completely obsessed with all things Doctor Who and he informed me a while ago that this year was the 50th anniversary of the programme. So I thought I'd make a silly something to commemorate it and this is what I've come up with (so far!) - A Cuddly T.A.R.D.I.S :-)

The slogan around the top of the Tardis reads "Who Loves The Doctor? Andy!" so it's personalised and on opposite sides says "Doctor" and "Who" (have to credit my husband who came up with that!). There's also a further bit of customisation on the note on the "front door" which reads "AP's TARDIS" in the smallest embroidery I've ever done! It stands 17.5cm tall and 8cm wide and is filled with the same toy stuffing I use for my Cuddly Campervans

It's one of those really silly creations that amuses me no end (I hope my friend Andy likes it too!) and it's the sort of item that usually sparks off all sorts of spin off goodies that I'll be itching to make and show you!

My shops are going to stay in holiday mode till the end of May, to give me time to get myself organised for the Harrogate Home & Gift Show which takes place in July, from the 14th - 17th and which is the first Trade Fair (i.e. selling direct to retailers only) that I've ever taken part in. However if you think someone you know would like one, please let me know in the comments or email me at simmi@gracesfavours.co.uk and I'll slot you into my order list.

Now that the Home & Gift Show is coming round quite quickly I'm starting to have a mild panic (more about that when we get back from holiday!) but for now, I'm just going to leave you with a calming pic of the beach, taken at lunchtime today :-)

I really appreciate all comments made on the blog (it reminds me that I'm not talking to myself!) so just wanted to say thanks for adding your thoughts. Simmi x
