Off to Market I go!

It's been one of the busiest weeks I've had so far this year with my sewing, it feels so good to get so much done and sent to various customers, and to finally be ready for the first of my Christmas markets in the morning..........I've already been to town and set my stand up so I won't have to rush too much in the morning, how good is that!

This will be the first time the people of Gunnedah ( apart from close friends ) will be able to see what I spend most of my time doing.......I hope they like what they see!

There's mostly all the items I've been making for a little while now and a few new ones.......sorry haven't taken as many pictures as I should have, here are just a few of the items I'll have on my stand tomorrow.
Some pears all done up for Christmas and some of the originals without bells and ribbon.
Loads of these little cuties!
I've taken my tree which will be adorned with gorgeous Christmas ornaments.
I think there is about 60 of these in various colours........all ready to hang!

Babushka hanging ornaments galore!
I had loads of fun making these and watching them all come to life!
I even set up a table in my house and set out some of the items to make sure everything would fit on the tables supplied and that it all looked nice.

These would have to be my favourites!
Fabric boxes made from linen and lined with some of the most gorgeous ticking I've ever seen...... all with a touch of Aunty Cookie on the front.
It's going to be a fun day and I'm really looking forward to meeting some lovely local people.
I must go and get some dinner......think I'll be having an early night tonight!
Thanks for stopping by.
