I'm a winner!!!

I am so very happy to announce that I have been chosen to be one of the six crafters to be allocated a stall at The Knitting & Stitching Show 2011!

I was proud to have been chosen as the final 16, but getting the stall is unbelievable!

This is an amazing opportunity for me and I would not otherwise have been able to take part, as stalls for the 3 day event cost over £600!!! So thank heavens for the good folk at Craft Guerrilla & Twisted Thread who have joined forces to give people like me this wonderful opportunity.

The event takes place from October 6th -9th so a busy busy few months of making wait ahead! Until then I will also be at the The Thames Festival on Sunday 11th August, so watch out for me there too!

Making, Making and More Making!

...and did I mention making?

My little hands have been busy (you guessed it) making lots and lots of stock. I am aiming to make atleast 5 of each thing before things start to pick up (fingers crossed!).

I have a few things in the pipe line. Firstly, Retro Roost-an online designer fair launch tomorrow and my goods will feature on their site. I'm very excited to see my things up there! Similarly, I have also been accepted onto a website I fell in love with called Lasso The Moon. A few of my products are currently being photographed by their pphotographers, ready to be uploaded onto my page. Again, very impatient to see how it all looks on their amazing site. It's so great to be accepted amoung such wonderful work!

Anyway, here are a few pics of a batch of my teapot oyster card holders in the making!

Here is a purse I was commissioned for. The guy, Simon, contacted me through Etsy wanting a custom portait purse of himself to give to his girlfriend as her birthday gift! Above you can see I have included the photograph he sent me, my drawing and the finshed product as a small insight into my process. It's great to see the steps...although this photo makes it look so easy!

Cally Fest Stall Pix

Here are a few pictures of my stall at The Cally Fest. It was an amazing day! There was so much going on -although I couldn't actually leave my stall to witness it all for myself, I could hear it and feel it in the air! Such a wonderful atmosphere and even the sun was shining (and that's rare!).

I had great feedback from lovely passers by and customers, which is always nice. Everyone was very complementary and I even saw a few unexpected familiar faces. All in all it was a wonderful day and a great success!
