Here you go...
Celebrate with me following a successful first day at being self employed by helping yourself to a slice of virtual cake!!!
I was lucky enough to have the real thing :-)
Unfortunately it was not home made - extremely short of time these days so Tesco done the job just fine!
I had some freesias.
I absolutely love these and as you can see they match the feature wall in my living room brilliantly.
Today has been brill. I have had so many entries to the competition to win the hamper (details of which can be found HERE). And also so many kind emails with comments, questions and a few orders.
Now I know the website works I can really concentrate on getting things prepared for my first craft stall on Monday. There is a shopping and pamper evening to raise money for Action for Children and I am providing one of the raffle prizes.
I will now reveal what I have made for the raffle: -
Do you like it?
It's a long cushion using festive fabrics, ribbon and even Christmas tree buttons!!! Eeek!
The cushion is backed with super soft wool mix red felt. I have decided I will be making a few of these type things throughout next year to sell on the website. Wish I could do some this year but I have run out of time.
Tomorrow I am off to the bank first thing to get my float sorted for Monday, finish off my snowmen and Santa decorations (they need stuffing and sewing up), then I have to put tags on all my items and pack up what I am taking on Monday. I have decided I will transport it all in a suitcase if I can. So much easier than faffing with lots of plastic boxes!
Have a fantastic weekend everyone whatever you may be up to xxx
Ps. Can I just say thank you to Pretty Petal Handmade who blogged about my competition and said some lovely things. It's great to make good bloggy friends xxx
