Quirky Tree!!

Just a very quick post, as I am surrounded by half made items for
my next Craft Fair on Sunday.

I have had an amazing time at all my Craft Fairs recently. 
The only problem is, having to make yet more stock for 
the next fairs!!

Sorry I haven't been visiting blogs but I will catch up next week.

This is one of my new makes. Took ages to make and hubby 
said he didn't know how I had the patience to make it.

I liked it so much, that I am keeping this one and making 
another one to sell!!

Have a lovely weekend and thank you for finding time to pop 
into my blog. I promise I will visit you all next week!!

Big Hugs,

A Diamond

A neighbour asked if I would make a card for
their friends' Diamond Wedding Anniversary.

So this what I came up with.
The glitter card I used was from Hobbycraft, 
as were some of the flowers.

The background is a pearlescent card I bought at 
Thetford Craft Show. I used a Craft Too A4 
Embossing folder on it.

This is the insert paper from my stash and 
the sentiment I printed on my computer.
The wording was given to me from
my neighbour.

As it was an 8" x 8" card, I made a box for it, as it was 
going to be hand delivered.

She thought it was far above what she thought 
it would be! It was the first card I have made for her.
She hasn't seen my cards other than their 
Christmas card I gave them last year!

Thank you for all your lovely messages you left
me on my last post.
My swirly patterend bauble is much better than
the one on my last post!!
It was a fiddle to make initially but got the hang of it now.

I was hoping it would take less fabric but it  
still took 92 x 2 inch squares!! 

In between my Christmas makes to sell, I have just 
finished doing a Cross stitch Advent Calendar
for my Grandson. I now have to get my 
sewing machine out and put all the pieces together!!

I will post it when it's finshed.

Big hugs,

Christmas Is Coming!!

Sorry I haven't been around for a couple of days but
I did 3 Craft Fayres, within 4 days last week!!

I sold so much, that I am trying to replenish my stock!!

This Snow People scene is huge, well compared to the one
I did last Christmas! The snowman is 9cm high and Mrs is
8cm high. So it took quite a time to make and air dry them.

I had the Tando sleigh sides and I just made a box to
join them together, so you can put chocs in it.

This bauble was just me playing, to see if I could make a 
different design for a change from straight lines.

I wasn't sure where to start and finish, so just had to undo it
a couple of times to get it right.
I took it to the first Fayre and it sold within the 
first 10 minutes!!!

I made another one and that looked much better and it sold 
at the next Fayre!! 

I have just taken a few minutes away from my desk, whilst 3 
projects I am working on dry.

My next Fayres are on the 12th & 13th of this month, 
so I have got a few days to get a few things made.

Have a lovely weekend
and I will try to get to your blogs over this weekend.

Thanks for stopping by and I do so love reading your 
lovely messages.

Big hugs,
