I'm feeling a bit wobbly, a bit nervous, but at the same time very excited at the moment. On Saturday I'll be having my very first stall, here:
If you're anywhere near the northern side of Cambridge on Saturday, it should be a worthwhile way to spend an hour or so! Google Maps knows where Swaffham Prior is if you're not sure.
In case the clothes alone are insufficient to tempt you, you should know that the lovely and talented Emma Silverpebble will be there selling her irresistible jewellery, as she and her friend Andrea are the brains behind the venture. Also coming along will be Celia with her gorgeous prints, a local basketmaker, a ceramic artist, and more.
Mind you, there is the issue of what to sell. I'm in the middle of a sewing frenzy. This is about a third of my in progress pile - the house is in a state and the worst part is I can't shout at anyone else about it because it's all my mess.
I've been doing lots and lots of little felt appliques - which I shall photograph and show at some point, but this is one of the simpler projects I've completed, to give you an idea.
*I* like what I'm making, so I guess that's a start; I just hope someone else likes it too or my friends and family will be receiving books and purses for years to come ...
