  1. Ahhhhhhh! Back to daily routine…if that word applies in any way to the Quimper household!! The woodens there are dilligent…guess they take after the human. Always a treat to follow their adventures đŸ˜˜ Good day to each member of the household.

    • Thank you for the good wishes! We are rather glad to be back to ordinary tasks and creative endeavours again after the holidays, even though …in the old days if you didn’t get back to your spinning and weaving, your family would have run out of clothes!

  2. Dollhouse Lady couldn’t have said it any better. Quimper household is a creative mecca of wonderful things. Tea is always a delightful finish to any project.

    • We are happy to have projects that have a useful, if not essential purpose – even housework! And tea makes everything better we think – before, during and especially after a good day’s work!

  3. The Quimper HIttys put us all to shame! What a grand group of talented ladies. And their tools are also quite astounding!

    • The Quimper Hittys are just glad to be back to normal again…the house is always in such an uproar over the holidays…they love their textile-themed small wooden implements, and are glad to participate in such satisfying projects!.
