Having been inspired in my last post to create some fabric pictures I have since rushed back to the shop where I got the white picture frames and bought all of the ones I could find so that I could make some more.
Not least because I have my first Craft Fair of the year next Sunday (15th) in Hingham, Norfolk and was in need of some fresh stock but also because they are such fun to make. Hours can be spent thinking up designs, cutting out small pieces of fabric (I hate to waste any amount of fabric) and then stitching them on after using my trusted Bondaweb (what an amazing product). Then a bit of embellishment and hand stitching and they appear before you, looking amazing and just what you want to hang on your wall – well I hope the people who look at them in my Folksy and WowThankYou shops think so.
Talking of WowThankYou I am very happy this week to have been accepted by this website to sell my wares and have been busy today setting up my shop. I have started by putting in a couple of pictures but this range will grow in the coming weeks, so keep going back to look (and hopefully buy) won’t you – more exciting stuff to follow!
I have had a hugely busy week working at my day job at Lisa Dawson Soft Furnishings busily making beautiful curtains out of gorgeous fabrics – it is a real dream job as Lisa kindly lets me have the odd off-cut to use in my crafting products which is great for me as you don’t often need a huge quantity, just a bit of this and a bit of that to create other beautiful things. You also get to see lots of fabrics (most of which I could not afford) which then gives you a thousand more ideas!
I have also been lucky enough to be asked by a contact I found on Twitter to help write a blog for the Garden Tools and Accessories Supplier Town and Country. Check out their website as they sell some really cool products (in particularly gorgeous colours) and when my blog goes live you can read all about my vegetable growing exploits – not that I am an expert, you understand, but you may pick up a few tips here and there!
Well that just about explains my week. If you are in or passing through Hingham next Sunday then do pop in and say hi to us at the craft fair. We are going to be in Lincoln Hall, The Fairlands, Hingham and the postcode is NR9 4HN for those with a sat nav. We will be there from 10am to 3pm.
