Getting things ready

I had a very successful Wednesday with Pam getting things ready for the vintage craft fair. We started to pull our action plan together (made a list!)

We made some lovely Christmas bunting which we now have to design packaging for, we hope it will be popular and it certainly looked lovely on my chimney breast, so if all else fails we will both have very festive homes this Christmas.     

We made the bunting in several different colour ways, some red and green with red tape, some with green tape and some just in red and white which looked lovely.

We also created quite mess!                                                                                        

Pam has designed and painted some exquisite Christmas tree gift tags which we are going to sell at the craft fair - I think they are delightful

I remembered to take a photo of some other bunting I have made which is in pastel colours and is great for garden and birthday parties as the fabric is plastic coated - I think it has a soft vintage look.

 Back to Christmas, we have both knitted some lovely little Christmas Tress hangings which are embellished with buttons and beads - I have photographed a few that Pam has knitted - they are very sweet and we hope they will make lovely gifts and keepsakes.

Nice and tidy and ready to make the dinner, but my head is still full of lots of new ideas.


Pam has just emailed me about a new wool shop in Manchester that sounds interesting its called Purl City Yarns and has its own website and blog, I can't wait to visit the shop have a look at the blog it looks great..
