Polly pin cushion

birthday-present

Oh my! The thrill of an early birthday present. As you know, we’re nearly one year old, and we just received the most amazing and exciting little parcel in the post…

The beautiful wrapping only added to the suspense, and we could hardly believe what we found nestling inside. This amazing wire and wool sculpture pin cushion was handmade for us by Katie Halls. Here’s what she said, “Happy 1st birthday! I have been there right from the start, reading my first issue on the train to Devon. Your magazine, full of amazing creative people has inspired me to start a blog and do something with my ‘Polly Pins’! Though I’ve only just started out, I’m as happy as can be. Here is your birthday present! Good luck in your second year. Thank you, x.”

How sweet and thoughtful. We’re always surprised and amazed by all our readers’ kind support. We’re so grateful that you’ve stood by us and helped us on our way through the last 12 months. Hearfelt thanks from us, and we hope our birthday issue with free wedding lookbook will be the treat you’ve been waiting for. Here’s to the next 12 months…
