I had had the polystyrene ring for a while, wondering and wondering what to do with it. Then I made a rainbow chevron quilt, and ended up with lots of little scraps of fabric. I neatened up the scraps, added a bit of Mod Podge & hey presto, a colourful little wreath to brighten up my lounge! I think a festive one might be next.
My oldest boy has gone back to school now, back to normal routines for us all. Phew! But on the flip side I have been so busy at work I’ve not had much spare time lately. Ah well, everything balances out in the end, and today both my little boys were with Granny & Grandad, so me & my husband have had a rare lovely day to ourselves!
I really enjoyed doing the craft fair the other week, I’ve booked in to do another nearer to Christmas as well! I forgot to take a picture of my stall, but here’s my mock up on the kitchen table the night before:
For sale I had bibs, mini quilts, key rings, felt hair clips, zippered pouches, tote bags, all kinds of things. I must admit that I felt quite proud of everything I had made. Now, got to get my (whisper it) Christmas head on, ready for the next one!
I’m going to have a stall at the Heart & Craft fair at Headingley Heart on Saturday. It’s the first time I have been at a craft fair in a while and I am really looking forward to it! I have been sewing sewing sewing in all my spare time for the last few weeks, and my lovely parents and in-laws have helped by minding the boys to give me a little bit of extra time. Thanks Grandma & Grandpa & Granny & Grandad!
My friend Jayne, who makes the most lovely jewellery, will also be at the fair. This will be great as we can mind one another’s stalls for coffee/loo breaks. Have a little look at Jayne’s shop, Pebble Jewellery. I’ll take one of everything please!
I’m looking forward to meeting the other stallholders too, maybe I’ll make some new crafty friends.
