Today has been a busy day sewing for my first Christmas fair of November on Thursday, down in Bridge of Allan. It's a Coffee, Cake, Cards and Gifts open day at a friends house so it should have a really nice relaxed atmosphere. There's going to be myself selling my usual wares, Gill selling her Phoenix cards, and another few stall holders selling jewellery, organic handmade soap and Fairtrade Guatamalan bags and accessories.
I've been busy sewing little mossy green felt christmas trees adorned with bells, buttons and gorgeous ribbons, each one being that little bit different from the next. They're filled with rosemary, cloves and cinnamon, and look fab dotted around the house at Christmas time. I've made them for the past two years but always change the design slightly so hopefully they'll still be popular this year. The bells are a new trim that I've used and seem to have proved popular so far! So I'm back off to sit at the fire sewing on another 40 buttons and bells, ah the joys!!!
