Procrastination At Its' Best

Next Saturday is The Craft Collective's Dead of Winter Market, which I am once again so lucky to have a stall in.

Now any sane person would be spending the weekend and any available time printing and sewing and completing general market prep wouldn't they?

You would think so!!

But sadly one of the many things I am learning about myself as I continue on this more creative path is that I am really, really good at procrastinating hence, the following pictures of a quilt top that I have sewn up this weekend.

I have been wanting to make a graphic quilt top for a while now and I am really pleased with how it has turned looks pretty awesome on my chevron wall.All the fabrics are from The Make Cafe-it might actually make a great quilting class...hmmm.

No excuses now must get back to market prep. Hope you can make it down to CPIT on Saturday.

The Great British Encraftment Market

Yesterday was full on!! Typically there was a hockey game at the same time as I needed to be setting up for the market but my fab family helped make it all work and yes, the hockey match was won 9-0 with Miss E scoring 4 of those 9!!
It was crazy busy at the market which was held for the first time at Rangi Ruru College's hall with 2000 through the door.
All stallholders needed to provide items with a British influence and although I was tempted to supply my own personal pom-he didn't seem that keen so I decided to make some MOD influenced tea towels and cushions which reminded me how much I love mod styling. I think I will continue to print  my mod things,
