Its Christmas Time.....
Well, my one and only Christmas Craft Fair was on Monday evening and I must say that I am pretty pleased with how things went.
All those weeks of sewing to the early hours have paid off and now I am left with hours of undone ironing and also make a start to decorate my home for Christmas.
This is my 3rd Christmas Craft Fair at this venue and I have found in the past that it seems to be the smaller items that sell well, so that is what I concentrated on again this year. I got some really gorgeous patterns for little angels, I thought they looked really great, and thankfully so did my customers as they sold really quickly and I have some orders to make for others.
I didn't make any bags this year as in the past they didn't sell as well as the smaller items.
I do enjoy Craft Fairs as I love to see what everyone else has made and there is always a great buzz and it really gets me in the Christmas mood. I have a couple of orders to finish and then I will take a break from sewing until after Christmas. I have a few projects that I really would like to be getting on with so these can wait until then.
I am also planning to start a new Block of the Month, 'It's a Redwork Christmas' by Rosalie Quinlan, next year, that is if I can manage to finish (ahem I mean start!!!!) the gorgeous Block of the Month 'Little Bluebirds'.
I hope everyone is enjoying the run up to Christmas and I really hope that you are better prepared for Christmas than I am, which at this point in time wouldn't be difficult lol.
I hope you like the photos of some of the items I made for the Craft Fair.
If you read my previous post you will see that I have passed on the award for Kreativ Blogger to Debra of Wattle Bee Designs and guess what she is doing a fabulous giveaway on her blog for a free pattern of your choice, just leave her a comment for a chance to win.
