I’m On’t Telly!

Lauren Aston

Hello my faves!

I hope you’re well! I’m just stopping in for a super super quick one tonight (and I actually mean that this time haha!) I’m up to my neck in Knit kits and Santa Sacks, we’re getting out between 50-100 orders a day at the moment and it’s tiring, amazing and so much fun…THANK YOU!!!

So I’m desperate to get back to making and packing orders but I just wanted to stop by and tell you that…to my disbelief/horror/delight I’m going to be on Kirstie’s Handmade Christmas this Friday! It’s airing Friday 7th at 5pm on Channel 4 (and I’m sure you’ll be able to see it on Catch up should you wish.)

I’m a bizarre mix of nerves and excitement all in one. It was filmed earlier in the year when I was still deep in ‘recovery mode’ so I’m a touch nervous as I wasn’t quite feeling myself but the production team were SO KIND to me and I’ve been told the Editors are magicians so fingers crossed they’ll be able to find 5 mins of something passable from the 7 hours of filming we did! haha. I’m so so grateful for the opportunity and can’t thank them enough for sticking with me (especially as I threw myself off a bike and into hospital just as we were due to film… cue wobbly phone calls from me “The cast should be off in time” “I’m certain I can make it look like I’m knitting” *actual face palm* but we muddled through and other than 1 really creepy wink I did mid sentence (for no reason at all there than sheer panic) I think it was OK!

I hope you can tune in (no I don’t :p) or catch it later (don’t bother) and let me know what you think (unless it’s nasty then just keep it to yourself) I’ll leave you with that for now m’dears and get back to the orders!

Thank you thank you thank you for all your support, I’m incredibly grateful.

Take care,
