one more bag and cushion !!

Getting ready for Christmas

Yes, its that time of year again when I spend most of my days off, sat at a sewing machine !! Not that thats a bad thing though. Ive got lots of markets and fairs planned for October, November and December so its a busy time. Following that amazing trip to Harris and Lewis earlier on in the year, where I bought lots of beautiful Harris Tweed, I have been putting it to good use. Mixing it with both silk, vintage silk and felt, I have created a collection of bags and cushions.

It also been a busy time planning and organising the Manchester Craft Mafia annual Christmas market at the Whitworth Art Gallery. This year it will be held on saturday 18th December 10am till 4pm. Weve had lots of interest from many crafts people wanting to participate, so it should be a great event.
