The last lot of sewing for the stall, yeah! Now I just have to sell the stuff, a slightly nerve wracking prospect. Luckily I have two years of experience doing craft fairs, having previously sold children’s books and I know that sometimes you can just have a dud fair but dud fairs were easier on the ego when you personally haven’t designed and made the product! Doesn’t help, thanks to lack of time, I am not 100% happy with every piece, oh well!
The final pieces in my opening collection were finished yesterday, eight pieces in six days, not bad! Although by the end of it I was searching round for ideas, the heavy use of brown was not intentional, but it just worked out that way, it lead to a conversation with Girl Lacer in front of the floss display in John Lewis a few days ago,
Me: So I’ve done the man, the scary fish and the deer and they’re all brown, I feel like doing something in a different colour, what else shall I do?
Girl Lacer: A dog?
Me: What colour?
Girl Lacer: Um, brown?
Anyway, here they are, I quite like Gordon (inspired by the fuss about the poor man’s letter writing skills earlier this week) and the chocolate labrador (inspired by the large number of very cute chocolate labradors that live near me), the hissing cockroach was more a case of me thinking it would be a good idea, as opposed to actual inspiration and consequently I don’t like it so much.
