The task this week was to create 60 Miniature Picnic Hampers, having finally sourced same in the UK we continued to search for the other 20 or so items on our list – filling, ribbon, tags, cutlery and wrapping, all wrapped up! Word came over the wire, the Baskets had been left off the truck! Panic ensued, I challenge anyone to find 60 Miniature Picnic Hampers on the Patrick Street, in the eleventh hour we were told the baskets were winging their way to Cork and would arrive in HQ (or the Warehouse) by close of business on Thursday. Phew, saved by the bell! we worked til late in the night, folding, wrapping and tying til our fingers bled( well, ached anyway). All the effort was worth it in the end , our little baskets looked really cute, Good Enough To Eat!!.
