Pretending it's Spring

I haven't made one of these for ages (not since an Autumn one) but I needed something different to do so plucked this out of the WIP pile.  I LOVE it!  It was fun to do while watching the Brits.

I've also got a few more dribble bibs waiting for their press studs.

Working my way through.

I've had a big list of things-to-do, which grew larger and larger while sewing the Merit badges.  Today, I've managed to make a start on clearing it :)  The above is a swatch for me, a swatch for a customer and a spare for the shops.  Then there was a special request for an Etsy customer for this 'Thank You' card.

I also managed to make a couple of these make-up bags.  One is for a customer for her Mother-in-Law on Mothers Day.

This evening I shall finish stuffing and decorating a fabric tree.  I haven't made one of these in ages so it should be fun.

My first fair of the year was yesterday.  I had a great time and met some lovely folks.  It was also great to see the other crafters.  Unfortunately it made me realise how little stock I have!  Mega sewing sessions for me in the coming weeks..not only re-stocking everything, but working my way through my order book too.

Finished...for now!

Here's the last badges of the first run :)  190 in total, plus the initial 10 that was sent a few weeks ago.  I would let me fingers rest but now I have soaps to re-stock, other sewing orders to make a start on and a fair to get ready for this Saturday.  Who needs to rest anyway :)

Over Half way

This is the reason I have been very quiet on here - 133 badges so far...57 to go, plus 4 more prototypes.  I have rather sore fingers but the end is in sight ;)

(no idea why this picture wouldn't turn back round, but you get the idea)
