A welcome to new followers too, lovely to meet you. 90 woohoo! I'll be having a giveaway when I reach 100 but you'll have to wait and see what it will be because I'm not telling :-)
Busy week for the Jubilee Cottage! On my last post I was saying how I'd made it twice last week to re-list as two had sold, well I've sold another three since then so three more made this week!
Just finishing up another one at the moment, sewing it together tonight. So that kept me busy!
It was the Maker's Market craft fair on Sunday, the first in the new location and the genius idea of holding it in a pub :-) I mean, who can argue with that idea! So I had new stock to make for that too, I had almost run out of the hanging mushrooms so I made a new batch.
I also made a few new felt heart keyrings, forgot to take a pic of those but they are just simple little stuffed hearts so you get the idea!
The fair went really well, not a huge amount of people yet but word is still getting around that we're there now. However it was a good day and I made a few sales including a mushroom cottage so all good and I was in profit :-) I forgot my camera so no pics of the stall I'm afraid but I promise to try to remember for the next one next Sunday! Lots of gorgeous stalls there, I find it impossible to not end up buying something when there's so many great stalls around and this was no exception. I bought the cutest stuffed cat hanger that hangs by it's tail from door handles, it's fabulous!
These were made by a lovely man and his grand daughter, you should have seen the patchwork he did, just wonderful. It took me ages to pick which cat as he had lots in different fabrics :-)
The Fairy Fair is next Saturday as well as the next Makers Market on the Sunday so I have a busy week ahead making more stock. Obviously fairies are appearing! I have been fiddling about coming up with a pattern for a fairy I like that is simple. I used the body and skirt from a freebie pattern I found ages ago and then designed the rest to look how I wanted her to. Took a few attempts but I came up with this,
I plan to make a whole group of these little fairies in different colours :-) I knitted a hanging elf too.
So a week of fairies, elves, gnomes and mushrooms awaits, which makes me happy :-)
Have a great week everyone!
