I will be updating the shop today at 7pm and then another at 10pm UK time. It has been a busy week.
This will be the last update now till the New Year. Me and the trusty elves need some time to catch up with other things and spend time with family, as I am sure everyone else will be doing. So it's time to batten down the hatches, cook some mince pies, light the fire and put up decorations and settle down for Christmas. We wish you a happy holiday season. xxx

Wikipedia says "A knickerbocker glory is an ice cream sundae that is served in a large tall glass, particularly in the United Kingdom."
But the knickerbocker is a pair of knee-length trousers for children, particularly boys, and those engaged in outdoor activities such as sports, golf, baseball, cycling etc.
But the knickerbocker didn't go away, it just got crazier and was an essential item in any self respecting culotte wearing 70's fashionista. I remember having a pair myself in the 80's too, so one has to respect their short stature as a trouser but longevity in wearabilty.
Until finally it has been revived from the sartorial back of the
wardrobe by me and the moshi elves.
And there will be a little shop update on Sunday this weekend. Keep your eyes peeled for times which I will confirm soon.

Well, as promised I have decided to open up a few spaces on the custom order list. Christmas and December seems a good time to get on with that as lots of people are busy with family and other things so the shop is quieter and gives me a bit of breathing space. The way it works is that the first five people to leave comments on this post will be given a space, sorry it is such a few, but you know by now that I hate big lists. In order for me to contact you and start the ball rolling could you also give me your flickr name so that I can fm you there, but following that I will contact you through etsy.

Well, Le Jour B was a fantastic day, the organisers were brilliant and did such a good job of looking after everyone and it was lovely to catch up with old friends and to make new ones too. I was exhausted afterwards from so much smiling and chatting but in a totally nice way. It always amazes me how much creativity there is in the Blythe world, and to see all the other makers was so inspiring. It was also wonderful to take in the sights of Paris once again, it is truly one of my favourite cities and certainly one of the most beautiful that I know. I bought some very beautiful fabrics and some clothes for me too, as who can help themselves in Paris, and we ate delicious food and drank french coffee and wished we were Parisiens.
