Appliance Covers

This summer I sold some chair pads, placemats and a runner to a customer. Recently they called to order matching appliance covers. It's an item I hadn't done in years and due to the size of the mixer cover I wasn't sure I wanted to. But I did and though I might not readily do more mixer covers, the toaster cover went together very well.

Deck the Halls

Preparing for and doing a Christmas craft sale got me really thinking about Christmas. I put together a treasury for Etsy, showcasing the traditional red and greens.

Happy Holidays!!

Christmas Craft Sale

The craft sale has come and gone. It wasn't what we had hoped for. There were more than 60 vendors, many with great items to sell, but unfortunately the sale was not adequetly advertised and customers were few and far between. But I still managed to sell enough items to more than cover my costs and I received lots of great comments about the quality of the work.

The table was considerably shorter than my dining room table which was itself shorter than the 8 foot one I had been told we would have so everything was a bit crowded. Maybe next time, two tables?

Christmas Craft Sale Preview

It has been quite awhile since I added to my blog. I've been busy. That's my excuse and I'm sticking to it!!

In years past I have done some craft shows but none in recent years. So when a fellow etsian asked me if I was interested in taking part in one in Mississauga my first reaction was to say no. But David suggested it wouldn't hurt to try, so tomorrow it is! I have put together a table full of items and even sewed a vendor's apron for myself. Of course David wanted one too, so I made another one featuring his favorite topic...birds.

Now, off to price and pack up all those items on that table!
