A Giveaway and a tutorial in the making!

Well, this time last year I was sewing and crafting like a manic getting ready for my first ever Craft Fair! To celebrate Strawberry Patch's first foray into the crafty business world I am going to hold a giveaway on the 26th September (next Monday) so check back here for details then!

Ive also been busy working on my entry to the Pings & Needles scrap bag challenge and its finished! I have been writing my first ever tutorial for it too so I will reveal all next week.

For now I'll leave you with a 'lovely' photo of me looking very geeky and trying my hardest to hide my nerves at my first craft fair! Oh how things have changed in a year (and my hairs grown rather long too!)

Wow you must have been busy up till this moment! Is it worse than swapping? - that makes me nervous enough! Have you done any more?

Looking out for the Tutorial!

Yes it is very nerve wracking, I do about 2 a month now so have quite a few under my belt so to speak but I still get the nerves every time! I always worry that I wont sell enough to justify the work I did. I found it difficult to find fairs that were suitable for what I made so teamed up with a friend and now we put on our own, with out first BIG outdoor christmas market coming up this Decemebr - Eeeeee!
