I've found some zigzag stitch!

Thanks to the kindness of my mixed media watercolorist arty buddy who isn't that keen on sewing I have a temporary loan of a lovely machine that's enabled me to finish lots of work with some lovely zigzag stitch. Thank goodness! thank you Janet!

 new fabric

 I'm panicking about whether I have enough 'smalls' for the craft fair next w/e, so I made yet more fabric. It's 2 days & pretty big so hopefully lots of shoppers but I know from when I did the fair before about 5 yrs ago but with driftwood mirrors, that people come for a day out in the lovely gardens, to meet people for coffee & cake & to buy their first of the season plants. That's what I do, too, but I have faith in  my potential customers...positive vibes all round!

 work to be - book, purse, cuffs & some left over for cards & brooches

Will I have enough for the exhibition the following week? Who can tell? Whose idea was it to do both events one week apart!!


Look at these lovely cards that Suz  Suztats sent me, I'm so lucky - I admired the flowers on her post & I got 2 sent to me, thanks so much!

The Youngest is home tomorrow having spent a couple of days in Edinbro with his patient gf. I shall fly thru the day at work, meet the DH & the dog half way down the peninsula then carry on to collect him off the last ferry, oh joys! I hope it's still running in the slight breeze we're having....

These look very juicy and tempting so hope the fair goes well.

Am I correct in thinking that you also run a b&b ( ha my predictive text nearly made that a well known do it yourself chain!). My friends Who run a bed and breakfast in Gosport also make exquisite decorated bone china, sell their china very successfully to guests. Do you sell your work like that?

Good luck with the fair this weekend. Hope you sell everything although that would mean a very busy week for you.

Wishing you lots of success at the fairs! I like that new fabric, too.

Love the pieces you have made Emma, I hope you sell everything at both exhibitions - how will you find time for everything now your son has arrived home? You will be wanting to spend all day catching up!! Cheers
