The Craft Fair

Well, despite being quite poorly, the craft fair went very well. It was quiet but we had a good time and made a few sales. The rainbow scarf featured in the last post was the first to go and I was very happy. I took a few photos but the bar that the fair was held in was quite dark so they didn't turn out so well.

 This is Kat Savage with her amazing hand made brooches and pendents 
This is me and my mum at our stall.

The local news paper turned up to write about the craft fair and the charity it is for. They took some pictures of me, the organizers and some of the other stall holders. I was very surprised on Wednesday to open the newspaper and see this. I actually burst out laughing in the middle of the supermarket.
The cardigan I'm wearing I made a few days earlier. The pattern is from Lion Brand and I love it. It worked up so quickly, I got it done in 3 nights and I've had lots of lovely compliments on it. The pattern is just a giant circle with arm holes in it and the fit is surprisingly flattering.
Once I had finished the cardigan I decided to play with my needle felting kit. and I made this cute little critter.
He took all evening and through lots of experimenting I learnt lots of lessons about needle felting, mostly about the many different ways I can stab myself with the needle.

I also made a little progress with the hexagon patchwork and added another row. I really can't wait till it's done but I know it's going to be some time yet. Oh well, I shall keep stitching!

Well it's a big crafty rant this week. Thanks for reading.
