A Short Break

I don't appear to have done anything lately do I!!! But I have been busy making lots of the little sewing sets so nothing different to show a picture of. I wanted to get a few of these sets made plus cover the lids of jars for use as storage because I'm sharing a stall at a school fair on Saturday and wanted the stall to look pretty. Will I make any profit, will I even make enough to cover the expense of the stall? I doubt it!!! But who cares - it's fun making things and fun having a couple of hours at the fair. The items I've made will come in very useful as gifts or for swaps. I've put away my sewing machine for a while and I've cleared my crafting table. This is all in readiness for doing a bit of 'mini-ing' . I've started making an outside WC and shed. It will be a bit of a challenge because apart from the miniature lavatory, that I had already got in my mini stash, I'm trying to come up with a building and interior from 'trash'. So far I've got a cardboard box that is just the right size and I've put a layer of polyfiller on the roof. That's as far as I've got and I'm looking forward to seeing how it turns out!

Hi Ann, I was surprised to read you were clearing your crafting table but no fear it is just for another craft! I look forward to seeing the finished result. Maybe yo will take some photos at thecraft fair?

Sounds like so much fun! You just might surprize yourself with the profit of your stall--I hope so! That would be great! :D
