A fab weekend

Well, we're onto the last push this week, it's more mad sewing for our Open Day this Saturday (all welcome if you're in the area). We had a fab time at The Green Gallery Fair this weekend, we were beside some lovely stalls in the conservatory, it always helps when you've got nice "neighbours" at these things.

I love the fact that quite a lot of bartering goes on between the stall holders, I did swaps with Emma of Pumpkin Sputnik who was next to me, she makes the most fabulous stationery, have a look at her site. We're hopefully going to work on a project together some time next year.......
We were also kept well fed and constantly tempted by The Cookroom, the most delicious range of cakes, all gluten and wheatfree. The Fair was their first weekend of trading so I really hope they do well in the future.
I also got to meet the lovely Jane Keith, the sister of my friend Sara Keith, both extremely talented textile artists. Jane was there with her fabulous range of hand printed and painted silk ties, I think we're planning on doing swaps too, she loves our dotty aprons and is getting one of our dotty door stops for her Christmas..........!
Right, must get on, loads to do this week, plus the house looks like a bomb has hit it, so a fair bit of tidying will be required before Saturday.........!
Bye for now,

P.S. the pictures are of Katies gorgeous felt jewellery, it flew off the stall this weekend. x

I can't believe I missed you're open weekend - I've been so bad at blogging lately, I love the flowers!

I'm liking those beads - are they made of felt?

Glad to hear that everything is going well for you at the pre-christmas fairs - love this jewellery no wonder it's selling like hot cakes.

The felt jewellery is gorgeous isn't it? The necklaces are made with felt balls, some on ribbon and sone on wire, really quite different. I'm the proud owner of a beautiful green and blue one. It's the beads that I love.

Busy getting through the orders now that all the fairs are passed, I might actually get some Christmas presents made for family if I keep the momentum going!

It looks like your business is really going places and it also sounds like you're meeting some pretty cool people, too!

I am so glad it's going well for you!

If I don't get to say it beforehand, I hope the both of you have a wonderful Christmas and a very prosperous New Year!

Hi Lisa. I've kept checking in to see if there is a new post but I'm guessing you're up to your eyes in work and last minute orders. Just wanted to wish you a very happy Christmas and very best wishes for 2008. Nonnie x
