Then I would know who I was and, more importantly, so would everyone else!
So here is my new pinny - and, as Monkee Maker noticed on the last post, my new blog header (although that needs tweaking to get the right size/focus etc, very fiddly!)
I have had the bottom half of this apron for ages - a bargain buy from the Basement Corner at IKEA - and I wear it a lot when I am "creating". It is also very useful at craft fairs because of the big pockets for the piles of cash I make (humour me here!) or monkees made of knit!
So in true "recycling pockets" mode I used two of the girls' outgrown denim pinafore dresses to make a bib for it and added my name (so I wouldn't forget)
Fortunately (presumably because I was now appropriately labelled) last night's craft fair was much more successful.
Charlie and the children came to help me set up and the whole evening had a much more positive vibe.
Stop flirting Charlie!
People were genuinely interested in my work and especially the whole concept of recycling children's clothes into something more permanent and lots of people asked me for my card rather than being given one!
I also sold quite a few things and then woke up this morning to discover I had sold one of my wallets on Etsy too! (Fortunately I had remembered to remove all the things I had sold during the evening before I went to bed - it would have been really frustrating to sell the same thing twice!)
Finally a picture of the little sofa I picked up from Mum and Dad's yesterday - it used to belong to my Granny and I treasure it because of her. I plan to recover the cushions (one day) but for now have made use of a cheap shop bought quilt - it looks quite jolly!
And now I am off to do battle with the sewing machine shop as Jenny, my lovely new Janome machine (only 6 months old) has decided to be very contrary. I seriously hope they give out "courtesy sewing machines" or I am going to be one cross crafter as I can't possibly manage without her with all the orders I have stacking up. Wish me luck!
P.S. thank you for all your lovely comments on my last post. I am having trouble replying as I keep forgetting who is no-reply and who isn't. Does anyone know how I can change my no-reply status for comments that I leave?
