Fabric explanation

As l have been having slight blog block the last week or so the idea of wordless Wednesday really appealed. Just post a picture that says it all for you and so the picture l posted shows the fabric l have been working with over the last few days. It is Robert Kaufman and called Metro Chicken. l have made this fabric in a Brood of Chicken Door stops - l even went as far as giving them names - l do need to get out more. l'll let you know what the feedback is on this if they sell in their new home.
Speak to all soon promise.

Back to Normality

Yes its over my first craft fair in 20 odd years and wait for it l ............made a profit!!!!! This was very unexpected as although busy it wasn't packed out. The venue was the Salford Art Gallery in Manchester and the crafters were on the second floor of the gallery. My only critisim is the quietness l could have done with some piped music as l felt l had to speak to everyone to break the silence.

My DD came to help as DH is in Barcelona on a Conference(jolly) she was a great help until she lost the plot and put a sticky label on my back which said loser- enough said.

Not sure if l will do another yet but watch this space

l thought l would share this cartoon with you as over the last week or two this has been me.

Its on its way.

l've had that email waited for by many. My Cath Kidston book 'Sew' is on its way- l hope its here before weekend l cannot wait.

This picture shows some of the little dogs l've made for the craft fair next week- a real pack. l'm not sure how much to take so it will be a little trial and error. The worst thing is my WW buddy wants to come - she thinks there is food on.
And the other is a display from one of my new customers showing my items - l love the way they are all in the basket just my type of thing.

l have also made some bunting using this blog as inspiration- l thought l could decorate my stands with it. knowing my look this will be the only thing to sell and its not even for sale.

Its Jean for Genes day at school tomorrow so l'm off to try and get into mine.
