Even though The Rutland Show was very very wet a great day was still had by all. I would have been very rich woman if i had a stall selling wellies, umbrella and raincoats.
Knot Just Jigs had a special "Royal" purchaser that day, we won't reveal which Royal but will say he bought a Jacobs Ladder for his Grandson, an excellent choice in my opinion.
The Jacobs Ladder has mesmorised childrens and adults alike for a long time and is one of the most ancient and famous of folk toys. Legend has it that one was found in King Tut's tomb, which means these fascinating toys were played with in Egypt long before 1352 B.C., when the young king died (he was about 18 years old). How amazing that this humble folk toy would have been included among Tutankhamen's most significant effects, along with brilliant jewellary, amulets, masks of pure gold, statues, furniture, and even a full-sized chariot.
We are very pleased to announce two new products this week, the first one being this fantastic new rag doll, one especially designed for the boys after the great success of our beautiful girl rag dolls.
My son had the first road test of these new rag dolls and he absolutely loved them! he wouldn't put "Jack" down so he now has an early Birthday present.
This is one for all football lovers! Traditionally skipping may have been a girlie thing, but boys are discovering the fun of skipping too! We have risen to the challenge of providing fun designs for boys as well as girls. Have a look at our fabulous range of wooden, handpainted skipping ropes

Knot Just Jigs aquired a new gazebo this week that got its first outing on friday, i was very chuffed to be able carry this one across the lawns and erect it all on my own! the wind was quite bad but we both survived the ordeal (i am so glad i made full use of the the tent pegs and had put in the spares) the rain didn't seem to bother it either, it had a couple of little drips but thats fine as on the whole it ticks all the boxes.
This week see's our Arts and Craft event at the lovely location of "The Square" in Beeston town centre, a thriving and busy town centre, surrounded by interesting areas of open space and countryside, there is definately something for everyone there.
We will be regulars of this location during 2009, if your in the area remember to come and say Hello!

This was my stall at the Bumps, Babies and Beyond event (excuse the wobbly banner i forgot to take my drawing pins to hold it in place!)
It was a really enjoyable event with lots of lovely stalls, whilst the footfall could have been higher i dont think it was at all bad for its first event and hopefully once established it will become a great event to both trade and visitors.
The best seller of the day had to be the wooden plaques and letters, lots of mums-to-be were purchasing them for their impending arrivals! i just hope the sonographer is right with the sex of the baby.
