2 Working Days left....

It's Sunday night, and I have 2 working days left...so what do I do, start to make something new. You think I would learn!!

I was fixing up my signs from last year, they were just a breadboard and a cabinet door painted with blackboard paint. But this year there is more emphasis on a nice display of names and workshops times. The breadboard will do again for chalking up the workshop times, but I needed something different for my Stitchlily sign. I also wanted to make some kind of a banner for my Sit and Stitch area. So I decide to make them out of fabric, cutting out the letters and stitching them to a backround. Several hours later, I'm still not finished. They came out kind of small, so no one will even notice them...Oh, well, maybe I'll learn for next year, no more last minute fabric banners...


Here is the letters cut out ready for stitching, and also a sneaky peek at some of the workshop brooches and a kiwi cushion!!


These are a sneaky peak at the Alternative Yarn workshop - plarn and newspaper yarn, crocheted...


Last year I didn't make a penny and spent a fortune on all the equipment and stuff. This year if I cover my costs I'll be very happy....I had planned on making lots of knitted scarves to sell, but when it came round to it, I ended up having more fun playing around with patterns on the knitting machine. Now why haven't I don't this before? I was trying out Aran style patterns on very fine lace scarves, and also the 'snagged tights' look....I mean the Gothic Lace look...
