You know what? You're fab, you lot. The lovely good luck comments spurred me on through a week of stupidly late nights and a sinus infection and sewing my finger more than once (only a machine sewer can know the pain of being whacked by the needle holder when you fail to get your foot off the pedal at 1am. Still, at least it wasn't the overlocker.)
The sale day went better than I could have ever hoped. We had a sunny day, a hall full of daffs, GORGEOUS stalls (and I somehow didn't spend all my takings - yet), delicious Boden clothes, and a steady stream of visitors.
My stall came together, and I managed not to spike anyone with bamboo canes or stab anyone with a needle. I even made some custom requests for hair elastics and clips on the spot which was a very special feeling, and I have a couple of orders to fill. Yay!
So, to say thank you to everyone who left me good luck wishes, and to say sorry for not replying to everyone individually, I'm having a retrospective giveaway. I've drawn a random name from the people who commented on the last post, and I'll make for you one of my covered notebooks with a little picture of your choice on the front. To remind you of the sorts of things I make, here's a reminder:
And the winner is ....
Lucy, I'll be in touch to find out what you'd like on your notebook.
Now it'd back to the reality of a neglected house and a pile of ironing. Ah, well!
