Then I heard the call of a local Craft and Vintage Fair, I said Id never do one again, but I did.
I have low will power.
I spent weeks preparing, pricing things, trying to find display stuff, the fair happened, I made some money, then spent most of it on a skirt that was singing to me on the stall next to me.
On the one side, as it was vintage it was a teeny tiny size, it had a 29" waist, on the plus side I am an awesome sewist, it had pleats so I knew I could take it out to fit my less than vintage waist.
Here it is, brace yourselves.
Apologies for the awful 2nd photo.
I've been trying to make items out of things I already have.
Necklaces from letter press stamps. Necklaces
More soldered shadow box necklaces. I tried to be modern by using a pop song lyric. Then I went for an olde worlde sewing theme. Shadow box necklace
Some recycled chandelier glass pieces which I have soldered around, added diamante and chain, to make into Xmas tree decorations Decorations there are other Xmas items to look at on my site.
A glass with a soldered on chain to hang on a tree, add wrapped sweets.
And I've dyed some old linens to give a more modern look.Linens
I decided to make my own Xmas cards to give to friends this year so I've been drawing, a robin on a toadstool this time. All the drawing has made me want to make my own rubber stamps again.
I think that's it, not much to show for a year but hopefully I'l get back into the swing of things.
TTFN and have a Merry Christmas and an alcohol laden New Year.
