Is set apart for All Fool's Day;
But why the people call it so
Nor I, nor they themselves, do know,
But on this day are people sent
On purpose for pure merriment.
[--Poor Robin's Almanac (1790)--]
They are really big and I have been waiting for these for ages. That is to say I wanted what I wanted. Smaller ones have been around but I knew what I was looking for and why...
It all seems cloak and dagger doesn't it but I am afraid when it is for publication it is rather like that. Still I think you will be seeing the outcome at the end of the year hopefully. ( oh this is not an April fool by the way!)
I can however show you what I have purchased and taken delivery of and they are beauties.....
I particularly wanted the ones with the holes you see.... and if you are patient and do not get frustrated that people are doing similar things then you are rewarded that one day there they are on Ebay!!
These are photographed on top of the suitcase that I have been making beautiful.... so it shows how large they are.
