My first port of call this morning was to collect some thread catchers from a lady I met
at the April Gingham Goose Craft Market. She had a stall, with two friends, next to mine
selling various items they had made with fabric. I bought two for my workshops and
they proved to be very practical and very popular. Two of my ladies asked if I could get them
two each. I’ll try and photograph them tomorrow in situ to show you.
After that I went to see the Friday Market at Warlingham Village Hall. I had been
asked if I would like to have a stall there. I wanted to see what it was like before
I made any commitment … and I’m really pleased I did. Although it was a lovely hall,
really bright and there was a friendly buzz there, it was very small. It also had a lot
of bric-a-brac stalls and about four other people selling hand made greeting cards!
When I arrived back home, I made a great cup of tea and disappeared into my studio with it!
I needed to concentrate on getting the design on the pegs finalised for tomorrow’s workshops.
The one part about the pegs I showed you yesterday that I wasn’t happy with,
was the edging of the paper that was adhered to the peg – it looked exactly like
what it was i.e. a strip of patterned paper adhered to a peg!
I sanded my down with a sanding block. This removed the sharp edge of the paper
and makes it look ingrained into the peg. Look closely at these photographs
and make your own mind up – sanded or not sanded?
