To market to market

How did the month of September pass so quickly???! As you can tell, I've been fairly quiet on the blog front. The madness of September parties are finally coming to a close. Its been fun though and the girls have really enjoyed getting out to different places for the celebrations.

Another spaceship cushion, this time changing the colour of the spaceship and letters. This little boy's mum tells me that he loves it and takes it everywhere with him. Im so happy that the kids that have recieved these gifts really treasure them.

Twirly skirt for my gorgeous niece.

Letter T cushion. The material used on the side of the cushion is yellow and sparkly. Perfect for a (now) 6 year old.

I have signed myself up for two local fetes, one happening in 2 weeks time and one in mid-November. Im not sure how Im going to get enough stock for the one in two weeks. Its awfully close and I've made very little headway. Mum has promised to come around and (yet again) help with the sewing. Im so thankful for all my mum's help.

Here are a few pencil and drawing pad folders I've made specifically for the fetes. My original template has been claimed by Miss G who likes to write notes to her friends whilst in the car :)

Thats all from me for now. Im back into the sewing room frantically cutting and sewing. Wish me luck!


  1. I do wish you luck--starting to sell at fetes is a big move. I hope it goes well for you!

  2. Good luck with your new endeavour! It's a lot of work, but that doesn't seem to be an obstacle for you ;). I'm sure you'll do very well. Love the new cushions and especially the pencil/drawing folders as well the the very cute skirt!

  3. Congratulations on surviving September! And good luck for the markets. The note pad holders look great.

  4. I love the pencil and drawing pad folders! So cute!

  5. I hope everything goes well for the fetes! Nothing like a deadline to force you to make stuff :) May you have good weather and discerning customers!
