I had a great time at the Craft Fair it was really busy, in spite of the awful weather conditions. We did really well.

Now it is back to the sewing machine to get the rest of my Christmas gifts done before the operation.
I have also got 3 Swap parcels to get posted out today.  Santa Sack SwapLaalaa's Advent Swap and  Christmas Stitches Exchange . Then I think I will be able to relax for a few hours. 

These are my Gingerbread Men Garlands I love how they turned out.

My Snow Cushion I wondered when I started appliqueing them why I hadn't chosen an easier less complicated shape but I loved the end product.

Hop you all have a good week. xxx

The Chaos Ends

I haven't posted for a while as I have been really busy getting swaps together and things ready for the Craft Fair at Kedleston Hall tomorrow.

Kedleston Hall near Derby

It is all set up now just have to make a few price tags tonight and relax. Something I haven't done for a few weeks.

I have received the date for my Carpel Tunnel Op! 14th December! 
 I am in a total spin now trying to get everything done for Christmas before then. As I don't expect I will be able to do much with my hand after the op for a while. 

More photos to follow as I left the camera at the Fair when I set up.

Happy stitching

Here come the Boys

I am really loving my gingerbread boys. I say boys as they are not finished growing yet! When they are complete I can call them men.

I can't decide whether to make them into a Gingerbread Garland or just leave them single any ideas would be appreciated. 

I've also been making Rag Wreaths for the Craft Fair. I just sit in front of the TV with one of my favourite shows on and away I go into a world of my own. They only take about 45 minutes to make, so thats all good.

I have just got to put a ribbon on them and away they go. 
The Craft Fair is only 2 weeks away, so I need to get myself into gear and stop dithering about.
I'm off to our little sewing group now. 

Happy Stitching Melanie xxx
