Not Coming to A Shop Near You!

When is a Coffee Cosy not a Coffee Cosy?

When it's a door stop of course!

This door stop was commissioned by a lady I met at the Edinburgh Festival. She had just decorated her music room and needed a door stop to match. The shape of my coffee cosies did the trick so I made a simple insert which is full of rice and is ready to be posted.

Why write about the door stop? I'm sure I have mentioned before that one of the benefits from buying directly from a maker is you can get exactly what you want, not what the High Street thinks you need. You will not find my door stop on the high street - just in a lovely music room!

The gloves are a result of four very cold and wet days spent in Milngavie at the Book Festival. There is a certain degree of satisfaction from knitting these 'on the spot' whilst I was tending my stall. I'm planning to write up the pattern and make them into a knitting kit.

I have also decided to start putting together a monthly e-mail newsletter with some special offers, sneak peaks of new products and the odd hint and tip. If you would like to receive the My Baboo newsletter please e-mail the word 'News' to

I have finally caught up with myself after Edinburgh and Milngavie so it is now full on knitting for all my Christmas shows. I will be at the Logierait Market this Saturday (19th Sept), which will be my last visit there till next year as I will be elsewhere in October, so come along for some good Christmas Present ideas.

See you soon!

Bearsden and Milngavie Book Festival

I will have a stall at the Bearsden and Milngavie Book Festival from 3rd - 6th September. You will find me on the main street between Boots and M & S, next to Alice.

There will be lots of events so please come along (whatever the weather!)

Hope to see you there,
