Well I've been lost in the land of the mushrooms this week and had great fun :-) I started out with making cottages, three of them in fact!
First up is the 4th of July Cottage with the American flag flying outside the door. The flag has 6 French knot stars as I couldn't fit the whole 50 on an area that's so teeny!
Next I made a replacement for the Celebration Cottage as it sold at the last fair I did, so this is the new one.
The third one is a new one which I named Marigold Cottage. I got a new hanging basket full of lovely Fuchsia's which hangs outside the window near where I stitch, I guess it inspired this one!
Then a hanging mushroom too in the Jubilee Cottage style,
After that I moved onto some more needlecases. Two new ones are done so far and one more is ready to embroider and stitch together.
I've had a busy week of mushrooming :-) The cottages and needlecases are now in my Etsy shop.
Oh yes and two Father's Day cards appeared too,
Now I'm onto the sea! I have a craft fair on Sunday at the quayside in north Shields and it's themed Spirit of the Sea and it's International Fairy Day too! I'm just finishing off a baby octopus and next on the list is a mermaid so that'll be fun.
I have found what looks like a great fair at a garden centre not too far away which will be every month on a Saturday. It looks so promising that I rang up to book for next month and ended up booking in for the rest of the year, lol! I don't do things by halve and the dates were filling up quite quickly so I figured why not. Since the last fair I did every month finished I've been looking for a new home which suits my makes and me to be my regular place and this fits the bill nicely and I admit I have a huge love of garden centres :-) It's a craft and food fair so there'll be cake too!
Well I better get back to my seaside makes. Have a great week everyone!
