It's been a busy week so far - I've been trying to make more stock for the craft fairs and finish off some orders at the same time as my order list keeps growing (yay!)
This is the finished elephant cushion that my friend comissioned for her sister. She told me the quote to put on and then came round and chose the fabrics and asked for it to have elephants on as her sister loves them. I took it round on Tuesday and she absolutely loved it!
I've been working on the two fleece blanket orders so that I can hopefully take them to display on Saturday at the first craft fair before I give them to my friend who has ordered them for two little baby boys she knows. One has zoo animals (see previous post) and the other has teddies - I'll show you a photo when it is finished. They will both have personalised panels on the back too.
I've also been making a new style of bag incorporating the pencil strip into a messenger style bag and I'm quite pleased with how it has turned out. I am making them with adjustable straps using buttons so they can be a variety of lengths. I have comissions for quite a few with names on the front flap so they will be fun to do. The pencil strip is just underneath the flap.
I won two give-aways recently and my prizes arrived this week! The first is this gorgeous work-book from Janet of Wildcraft Farm along with a piece of fabric from her stash for my first postcard. Thank you Janet - the book is brilliant!
My other prize arrived this morning from Gina - a beautiful little dottee doll with some other lovely goodies included! My neighbour came round to admire my prize so we shared the chocolate (yummy) and I really love the ladybug fabric! Thanks so much Gina.
Yesterday we all went to Alison's house for a Halloween party. Unfortunately someone came trick or treating just before we left - but we had NO sweets! I had already taken up a bagfull to Alison's house and there was nothing we could give this poor little child - and I don't believe in giving out money! I felt really guilty (so I made Jonathan answer the door while I hid inside!)
A drinking problem!
I had the drink...................
but no mouth to drink with! Disaster!
At least now you can all see that I don't look like a pumpkin at all! I'm really rather beautiful if I do say so myself!
( I had to edit this post and make the pictures smaller as it all looked too black and dismal! And I was worried about scaring the more sensitive and fragile among you - aka my sister!)
