Christmas sewing and broadcasting on Radio Cumbria

Well I had to start sometime and this is my first effort. I made some of these last year and they looked so pretty that I thought I would make some more.  This one uses green velvet for the top and very pretty upholstery fabric for the body, whereas last years were the reverse with green velvet bodies.

I have not had time to do more on my upholstery chair because I was head hunted by Radio Cumbria last week. The upshot can be heard next week starting on Monday on the Ian Timms show.  I will be broadcast at approximately 5.45pm on a number they call 'Little Cumbria'. They asked me to keep a blog type diary for 5 days and then to read it out at their recording studio. I will be played each day until Friday. So I hope you can tune in and listen to my radio blog.....

My 'management' was also roped in and you can hear him and his exploits the following week. Oh the things we do for fame...I will post links on the site after the broadcasts so if you want to hear me you can find the items more easily. I have to say I actually enjoyed doing it once the initial nerves settled down but the funniest bit was in the middle of the recording he started to cough and Bella was in the studio too so any minute I thought she would start to bark.....Anyway, we stopped the recording and he left with Bella and then I carried on.

I have to go and do some more work on my lounge floor now, so until next time, take care.
