And being such a star, Lucy also sent me this cute bunny bucket that is already in use, and all these spotted fabric pieces from her own collection. I'll be using heaps of these in all the pinwheels on the butterfly quilt. Thanks Lucy. You know me so well.... just love scraps and small pieces of fabric. And your post card is gorgeous!
Thank you all for so many welcome comments about my stall. It's really hard. The main reason I said I would do a stall is to support the creche. All my kids have attended this small childcare centre over the past 14 years, and it's amazing. I worked out that Jenny the Cook has made my children nearly 4,000 lunches (never mind snacks) over the years. Anyway, I managed to fill my table and sell a few things, not heaps but enough to cover costs and buy some lunch and buy a few little things for the kids.
I couldn't charge much, like $10 for a kitty bag and $15 for elephants and bags, but it still looks expensive when people are looking for bargains. People did have very nice things to say and I'll have some presents now for kids parties and family, and Maya might even have a robot in her Christmas stocking! It was very nice to clean up all the fabric and patterns and bits and pieces last night, and I even put the sewing machine away for a little while. It will be lovely to finish off some of the embroidery on my swap gifts and have a bit of a break. It's hard work sewing for stalls!
Have you seen Jodie's big reveal? Amazing!
