I feel a jumper coming on!

One of my ebay creations!

Well at last hubbo has sorted out the computer downloading problem! So here is the much talked about knitting. I have to say this photo was taken last week, and shame on me it has only grown by 2 more rows!

I am busy at the moment preparing for a craft fair at Stamford in Lincolnshire in May, I know I am a little early but I just want to be prepared. Also this week I sent off some of my smaller items to a boutique called MixMix in Southwell to see how they sell. The owner called me a friday to say 3 items had sold through word of mouth (they only arrived on Thursday). Also I plucked up the courage to ask the small craft shop that has a gift shop attached in my village if they would be interested in taking some of my stuff. She said bring it down during next week and they would be happy to start selling it. The down side that's its on Sale or return, but its a busy little shop with plenty of people in & out all day. I am only going to take some of my smaller items to start of with and see how it goes. I have also been using some of my Cath Kidston Fabric for some items for Ebay.

I know what your all thinking 2 posts in one day! And to think I was going to take a blogging break!

Hope you had a good mother's day! Good luck with the craft fair and congrats on your shop news! I think you can never prepare too early - so well done you!

congrats on the sales in the shop, and it's a great idea to prepare early, much less stressful than a mad rush the week before!

It sounds like a good idea to be well prepared for the craft fair in May - it will be here before you know it - Glad you enjoyed Mothers Day, although your trip to the gym puts me to shame, I spent the day surfing (on the net, not in the sea!) and scoffing Lindor chocolate in equal measure! - Natalie x

Great news on the business front, I'm sure you will do very well. Your knitting made me giggle, I remember being like that.
Take care:)

Hi Vanessa, couldn't find your e mail address, so had to do it this way. Would love to do a swap for an apron - I like the mocha flower one - also if I send you a cheque with the bunny, could I have a small mocha spot one for my daughter please? - Give me a shout with your address and who to make the cheque payable to - Cant wait - it's lovely getting things in the post! - Natalie x
