12 days and counting

Only 12 days left til my first big event in Ironbridge. 4000 people expected...... not quite sure how it is going to go. ..... Not even started thinking about my stand yet and how to decorate it.

Been busy busy busy making cards over the weekend, still need to finish embellishing and then packaging. My mum (aka Helper Number 1) went on holiday today so I may be calling on a few good friends over the next few days!

Today was an apron day. Lots of lovely reversible children's aprons being made. A few more of the fab Little Tiddler apron.

This time backed with a lovely Boden gingham fabric.

I especially love this Peter Pan fabric which I found on a recent internet trawl.

I'm also REALLY pleased with my fabulous cotton tape labels from the lovely Fiona at craftedhome.

Bunting on it's way!

Been really busy today.... my first official day of not being a teacher and being self employed!!! Clearly had to have a coffee break when my lovely sister in law came to visit but other than that I have worked flat out today. Hopefully will post some new pics of some lovely bunting tomorrow. Also, managed to find some fabulous business cards and labels etc for Lock Stock Boutique. AND found a lovely lady on Folksy who has made me some gorgeous new labels for my handmade textiles....... FAB FAB FAB!!!
