It made me finish all those little projects that I was putting off doing… those little sock monkeys that would have sat limbless on my sofa for another few months (there were 7 in total), the embroidery that I needed to finish a quilt, the binding for another, all the labels that I needed to print, all the bags that I had cut out in January that had been sat in pieces with no purpose, and all the new bags that I have now made… chickadeedoodah, this ones mine… and apparently Tinks! …and by the way, all my bags are original designs by monkey and squidge.
My cotton stash is now looking very sad, and my sewing machine needs a clean and an oil, but I am now armed with a lovely collection of stock that I am so pleased with and no pressure to make more, and with the urgency lifted I can make some more bags at a time that suits me… tomorrow? Maybe not.
There were some wonderful stalls yesterday. Of course the lovely gilhoolie was there, we were butting up on our smaller than they told us tables, and cake stand and deliver selling their beautiful… cake stands obviously, there were also handmade hats, bags, cards, cakes, candles… wonderful crafts made by wonderful clever people. Two other stalls had sock monkeys but I took great delight in the lovely Guy who told me mine were by far the best… he didn't buy one however!!! My little squashed stall below and some of gilhoolies lampshade on the right!
Now the question is… where to stash everything?
Thanks for looking.
