It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas...

I know it has been a while since my last post...those seem to be my famous last words eh?! I have been buried under Christmas coloured felt and fabric for the last few weeks with only the whir of my sewing machine to be heard!

I signed up to the local Christmas Fair in eager excitement and hurriedly started to make preparations by purchasing felt and other materials. I decided to make tree decorations- gingerbread men being my favourite and best seller so far, along with red robins and more of my lavender hearts which always go down a treat with my customers. A new addition for this fair was to use some of the vintage teacups I had been hoarding and recycle them into teacup pin cushions and candles. I bought a teacup pin cushion a few months back at a craft fair and thought it was such a great idea.
I wrapped the teacups in cellophane and pretty Christmas ribbon which made them the perfect gift!

It was a pretty successful day in the end and really got me in the Christmas mood! Although....I am trying to hold out until at least Saturday 8th December to put the tree up at home. Let's see if I last!

Here are some more pictures of my stall and makes.....
