WOYWW - do you like us?


Well look at that!!! A tidy desk at long last.
Yes, all the clutter has been tidied away now that our craft fair is done and dusted!!
If you have read our earlier posts you will know we had a fun day but sold little. The shocking weather and possibly the fact that there were other craft fairs in nearby villages, meant that the footfall was poor and I think some only came to avail themselves of the wonderful refreshments!!
Anyway - we are always so optimistic - we decided to revamp the shop and then add a Facebook link to our shopping opportunity.
So-(and this is where I find Facebook hilarious) - if you like us - how about following the link
Bonkers I know, cos we know you lovely folk like us or why else would you spend your Wednesdays popping in each week - lol.
OK so that's where we are up - my little sister and me.

My table has a few of my latest projects:
  • little Christmas wreath collage beginnings that may eventually become Christmas cards
  • a dumfed background which I hope to finish as a gift
  • a little chunky hoodie that I am making for little Steve who is rapidly outgrowing the last one that I made him
  • my Mollie Makes magazine - I haven't bought one for a while as I thought there were too many "empty" pages but this one had a few nice items - including a needle felted chicken by our blog buddy Gretel Parker of "Middle of Nowhere" blog.
AND below is little angel, Serena, who flew over to me from LL Jan this week. She is really lovely and so beautifully sewn by the talented Jan. I shall treasure her.
Jan called her Serena because she has a serene demeanour - like me then!!! lol



 If you want to read more about our craft fair and see photos, then scroll down and also do the same on Annie's blog - A stitch in time.

Now join in our Whats On Your Workdesk Wednesday blog hop by popping over to Julia's Stamping Ground and following the links.
Have a great week - keep dry and cosy!
x Jo

Lunch Lady Jan said...

LOL! We can be the Serene Sister then!! She was fun to make but I was quite nervous sending it to you, the master crafter!!
Hope the Facebook age works better for your wares - it's just tough trying to sell crafts at the moment I've found.
Hugs, LLJ #32 xx

Neet said...

So sorry about the fair! Have clicked "like" on your FB page so hope you can move up a level after everyone has done that today. Not that I know what moving up a level does.
Nice tidy desk today Jo, for how long?
Hugs, Neet 29 xx

I've 'liked' and 'shared' a photo - how could I not. Shame about the craft fair but at least you have lots of stock for the next one - I would have been there in a shot had I lived closer.
Beautiful angel - mine went winging on their way this week as well.

Mollie Makes. because everyone needs a needle felted chicken, lol! Did you get the issue with the cute needlefelt bear holding a fish? If not I think I saved it.

Have been over and 'liked' you Jo and commented on your scrapbox dollies. Everyone wants crafts for nothing these days except the ones who craft themselves and who know how much time and love goes into making even the simpliest of things.
Happy WOYWW

Karen said...

Those dollies are SO cute. Sometimes craft fairs don't make you much money, but you do make lots of contacts and spend lots of money on other stalls....oops... Happy WOYWW! Karen 90 x

famfa said...

So sorry to hear about the recent craft fair. I'm not expecting to do very well at mine as it's not been very well advertised and it's in a bit of an out of the way place too, but I shall look forward to having a chat with my friend and it's made me get on and make!
I purchased an embellishing machine last week at the Knit and Stitch show in Harrogate so I may need some tips from you. x

Anne said...

Hi of course we like you but I shall pop over to facebook and make it official :-) and I will share you on my page as well. Love the angel- spotted 'Gloria' on jozarty's blog. Happy WOYWW Anne x #124

So you gott the good twin, bet serena didn't,t go for the cakes like Gloria did? This angel swap has been such fun so I plan to do another next year but a different topic. So many people have said how sorry they didn't,t join in this swap! S use typos as I brought my iPad and haven't found the proddy thing to type with yet. Sun shone all the way to Germany and it.s joy to see the family. Tell anyone flying from mchester to extra early. I went early and only got thru check in then security in time to get to the gate which was boarding. Nightmare! Then someone took ill on the plane and the paramedics had to be called so we were delayed.
Love Jo x

Craft fairs can be such a crap shoot, but at least your stuff won't go off and you can fill your shop with all the goodies.

Have a good one, rachel
