Christmas Decorations and Don't Forget My Giveaway

Had a really fun day at the market on Saturday, it was very busy and I met lots of lovely people, but didn't sell as much as I'd hoped.  All of the stallholders said the same, lots of people looking but very few buying.  Sadly a sign of the times I think!  I did make a small profit after paying for the stall and petrol, so all was not lost, and as I say I met some lovely people so it was worth going just for that.

After all of the rushing about last week, I thought I'd reward myself today with a day to make something for myself.  I decided to hand-stitch some new decorations for my tree.  This is the angel I made:

I just printed out a colouring page that I found on the internet & cut out the pieces, before sewing it together and stuffing it with some toy stuffing.  I'm also part way through making a snowman, here he is all cut out but not yet sewn:
Will give me something to do tonight while watching I'm a Celebrity!

Don't forget there's still time to enter my giveaway just click here and leave a comment, I'll be drawing a winner on Wednesday evening.

PS did you notice the new banner for my shop at the top of this post?  Had several people stumble on my site while looking for lunch bags, but no new orders.  Hopefully this will help them get to where they want to be.

    I love your work - the lunch bags are such a good idea. I use polyester shower curtaining in my make-up bags as it's water resistant yet machine washable. Easy to sew too!
