finding the joy

That's what I've been trying to do and remind myself whilst sewing and making for my first craft fair. It's an experiment of sorts, dipping my toe and also seeing if I can keep the joy and not get bogged down and it becoming a chore. I get bored easy, I guess that's why I craft in so many different areas. So trying to decide what to make and then stick to it…a challenge! I'm getting there.

Pictured below is a linen Christmas stocking for the fair. Very simple, hard for me to not over decorate but I'm holding back. Thanks to Jess for the suggestion.

Oh and my bad I forgot to say thanks in my last post for the birthday wishes. So thanks!! šŸ™‚

    I think it’s lovely and simple, and looks nice and fat so lots of goodies can be stuffed in there too šŸ˜‰
    Good luck with the rest of your preparations for the market, I’m sure what you make will be great!

    flickr went swish (and a bit awful, but that’s anoher story), facebook went swish (and I still don’t like it either) and now typepad needed a makeover…..
    But – the stocking – simply elegance. love the lack of detail, love the simple line, love the linen.

    I like the simplicity. I too am sewing for my first craft fair and wondered if I’d get bored, but actually seriously loved it. I made some similar stockings, although I did do a bit more decoration admittedly. I’ll be back here for sure!
