On my desk today are just my Christmas cards ....I'm getting them ready to post so nothing very exciting there to share with you.
Why have I no exciting sewing going on? Well, just look here....
This is the view through the door in my sewing room! In just 2 days we have had over 10" of snow which has shut local schools and businesses so you can see why I've had no customers this week so far.
But I will share the bears I've been making since I shared my desk last....
Three beautiful colourful bears made from silk cravats with their own silk bow ties....aren't they special. I love the fact that no two of my bears are the same.
I love this little bear too. I had to reduce the size of a tie to fit him, make him a pocket and a little hat too....Isn't he fab?
Saturday saw me and my gorgeous hubby trudging through the snow to get to the craft fair at Ford village hall that I had a table at. There was supposed to be 17 stall holders but I was one of only 5 who made it. Surprisingly though I sold enough to cover my table costs, gave out lots of fliers, met some really lovely people and had an order for another Memory bear....and my advert is going to be put in the village news letters so all in all it was well worth the effort to get there....and a big thank you to my darling hubby for all his help and support in the bad weather.
And this was the Memory bear that resulted from the craft fair....it's a school bear for another of the local schools that I'd not made one for up to now so hopefully more orders will come in.
There you go from snowy Shropshire. I hope you are all keeping warm and staying safe if you have snow too. Please leave me a little message so I know you've called in and I will do my best to pay you a return visit when I can....I'm sorry to say I didn't do very well with visits last week due to my work load.
