A Spooky Afternoon

Not in the traditional sense, thank goodness, Im a wuss when it comes to anything horror related or scary.  Im trying to get myself organised for the next craft fair, which is on 11th September and I want to get a lot of stock on my stall this time, rather than relying on people making orders, which they do, but I feel I could do a lot better if I had a lot more "ready" stock.

So as the next "holiday" we are approaching is halloween, Im doing a lot of halloween themed felt-y things!  Have spent the best part of the afternoon while a poorly Lillie was sleeping, cutting out this little lot...

Thats just the start as I've got a couple of other Halloween type ideas to start on, hopefully tomorrow! 

Since the girls have come along, and especially since Maddy is old enough to get excited about dressing up, we love halloween in our house and always have a party and fireworks.  I hope there will be a couple of like-minded people at my next couple of craft fairs!

I've also cut out these ready to be stitched...

They will be birthday badges and mobile phone covers to add to my stock!  I thought my table looked a bit sparse at my last craft fair but this time its going to be overflowing with lots of lovely felt goodies! (if I say so myself!)

Im surprised at how much I've got done today given the shocking night I had with Lillie being sick, Maddy not wanting to sleep in her own bed and me freezing on the sofa!!  The housework however, has definitely suffered and crafting won today (no different from any other day really).

Hopefully I'll have lots of finished products to show you very very soon!
