I should update you on the Christmas Fair, which was 3 weeks ago but somehow seems like a thousand years ago. It is one of those odd things that I am glad that I did, to get it out of my system, but that I won't be doing again. Here is my little stall:
I sold none of my big stuff but happily I had already earmarked it all for my lucky relatives and godchildren etc so I don't have a big pile of stuff left - everything has gone to a new home. The remaining mini stockings and trees are on my Christmas tree right now.
The thing that I learned most was that whilst I enjoy sewing for its own sake, what I really enjoy is creating whatever it is that I feel like creating at that moment in time. Doing the prep for this Fair turned it into a job instead of a hobby. That's why I won't be doing another Fair!
As soon as the Fair was over, I started thinking about what *I* would really love to work on, and by coincidence (ahem) look what came in the post:
Spoonflower fabric yum yum yum .... I think I may make a Slouch bag out of this....
Echino purple Wish fabric ... this is going to be a bag too ... maybe a Nikki tote ...
Matryoshka fabric ... only a FQ of this but I thought it would make a fun journal cover?
Ashland dress pattern from Sew Liberated ... I think I may shorten it to a tunic but this is exactly the style of top I like to wear. And it's about time I did a bit of dressmaking.
Of course I haven't got started on any of this because of flippin' Christmas! But at least the world didn't end. So hopefully I will have time in 2013 (once my relatives b*gger off).
