Handmade Monday No. 84

Another week has gone in a puff of smoke and ever nearer Christmas and my first show of the year 4th November. Got into a panic as realised under 2 months away now and still need to do the dressing for my stall with the company name embroidered across the front, set up a trial run and photograph so I know where I am putting everything. Anyone would think this is my first fair but no this is the first of my new/old display. New because new drapes, old because this was how I used to dress the stall when I had the business originally in the 80's/90's until life, ie read work got in the way.

Back to this week, have spent this week clearing up and finishing projects part completed, the excuse had to order and wait for bit s and bobs, well that was my excuse the truth? got the accessories then proceeded to procrastinate and do new things instead of concentrating on what I should have been doing. So completed tasks:

Stars and Stripes

Five school bags



Two wash bags with Hollywood design and a gold star



Two tote bags with ditto of design as above


Another pink dreams bottle


Ten lavender bags for an old school friends Dad who grows and dries his own lavender, bought from the pannier market before but thought I would like the order:


Exhausted now so off for a lie down and to check out the other blogs at Handmade Harbour

  10. I love your piles of lavender bags. They remind me of the packs of embroidered hankerchieves (is that spelt right?) that you used to buy.
