So today was spent in a chilly village hall somewhere in Northamptonshire. Overall the day was good, but I did keep my coat on *note to self- do I need to buy some thermal undies for this craft fair malarkey?? Probably, especially if I am sat stitching at my stall all day.
Festive was the theme and Festive they got, with no sign of tinsel or glitter.
These are my ware's:
The odd fake bough ( I had to raid the christmas cupboard a month early for that one)
The odd extra large pine cone from French Camping holidays, they are always on show in our house :-) And some much admired felt 'paper chains'........
I did OK with the sales and thanks to the mass production I have gone into in recent weeks, I still have enough stock for the next fairs coming up. Time to clean and iron from now on I think. Thank you to my trusty followers for venturing into the windy depths of 'Another County'. X
Where did that week go? I just run, children, school, teaching, planning, taking photo's when the sun is shinning, down loading when it is not! Checking Facebook for friends far from home. Stitching and thinking. Back to school for the children - they sometimes do after school clubs (great) but each one finishes at a different time (not so great)!! Then we play 'happy families' and then I have the evening to play here or there and off to my bed. So I have managed to list more items :-), annoyingly 2 items dropped off and I don't know why!
I have been wondering for a long time when I would manage to start this blog. I really wanted it to coincide with a little shop somewhere and links to my own work. 'trumpet fanfare' that moment has come - if I can only find the links......wish me luck on my quest!
So, here is my first showcase of work, I have started a (very) tiny shop on etsy, the technology is beyond me at the moment, but they say I will get quicker......mmmmm, I hope so!
They do look good, even if I say so myself.....:-)
The next City & Guilds course will be a full Certificate spread over one academic year. A more gentle introduction to creative design and colour together with the usual block of textile techniques and then a block of embroidery designing. Suitable for beginners with an interested in creative textiles.
I'm also hoping to run less formal courses for 10 weeks at a time. Be inspired and look at your identity as a person. This would be suitable for a beginner or experienced student. You can make an Art cloth or Art quilt.
October will also be a month for textiles at the Central Milton Keynes library! Bringing together students work over the last 4 years into an exciting exhibition and small workshops. Do get in contact with me if you are interested!
