    Your son just sold me a car and whilst doing so mentioned your website – expert salesman!! You have some lovely things, I wish I had a cutting machine your cutting files are lovely. Thanks for the French knot tutorial. Mine have always unravelled in the past so I had given up on them. I’ll try following your instructions and give them another go!
