The vintage linen hearts I showed you in my last post are nearly finished, although there are still a few left to fill and then more to make, but I have been making a cushion this morning for a change.
Made from natural cotton osnaburg fabric, which is soft and has an interesting flecked appearance, and printed with a French style graphic from The Graphics Fairy, it is backed in a soft black and cream ticking.
I have been asked if I would like to have a stall at another Festive Fair, this time closer to home but also only a few weeks away.
I therefore decided against doing the second fair that I mentioned in my last post (a bit too far away and only a week apart from the first fair) and so am just going to focus on preparing some good stock for the other two. This latest Fair is a Luxury Festive Fair with hand-picked stalls (invite only so I feel rather chuffed at being asked!) so there is no overlap of goods and no competition, so I shall have to make sure I can offer a good selection of cushions.
Nearer the time I will give out details as to when and where the Fairs are in case there is anyone who lives locally who might like to go.
In the meantime I have lots of sewing to do!
It's this stage, the designing, planning, sewing and making, that I most enjoy, but when it gets close to the Fair I curse myself for having committed to doing it as I'm quite a shy bod. Once I'm there I'm fine, and I really enjoy it - I just get cold feet and nerves in the week before!
Below is the graphic I used from The Graphics Fairy - she has some wonderful images on her blog here, and is constantly adding new ones.
