Where did the last week go to? Time certainly flies when you're having fun doesn't it? Firstly I must apologise to those who called in here last week that I didn't manage to leave comments on. My days just disappeared and here we are back to Wednesday again! I will aim to do better this week but I never know what work is coming through my door at any minute. During last week I had orders for 7 of my Memory bears as you know and the orders are still flooding in so I thought I'd show you the last three I've made....
The two stripey bears are made out of special baby clothes and I have to say they are some of my favourites.....don't you just love the little sailor collar on the top one?
The black fronted bear is for someone just leaving secondary school ....I'm not over keen on the all black front but what the customer wants the customer gets and I'm sure it will hold special memories for the young lady it's going to.
Here's the little black bear sitting on top of a pile of sewing I've been doing this week....2 zipped cushion covers made and 3 huge chair backs hemmed all round.
Plus many other sewing jobs are hanging on my rail....it's been a really busy week.
And for those that left me lovely comments last week about the craft fair I was doing on Friday....here's my table full of goodies.
I'm sorry to say I sold nothing! It was advertised as a craft fair but was really a school fun day so the children spent their money on sweets, drinks and games. I handed out many fliers so hopefully I may gain a few more customers but it was a lesson learnt as they say....it cost me £10 for the table, £10 for a raffle prize and we bought raffle tickets on top of that plus I lost half a days work [and had customers wanting to come too!!]. All in all it proved to be an expensive afternoon but you have to try it to know and I came away still smiling because I had had a lovely afternoon with my hubby and met some lovely people while there.
So that's all from me for today. The sewing is still flooding in through my door so I will pop over to yours to say hello in snatched breaks during my day. Hope you're all having a fab week.
