November 2022, a wet one this year.
During the Arts Trail in October, the people who visited me could enter a lucky draw to win a couple of hand-printed items, so early in November they were posted off to a lady called Janet in Beckenham.
My first sale in November was a vist to Landscove's monthly breakfast market, where the bacon and eggs were frying and the stalls were full of beautiful things.
Next, the focus was to get ready for a couple of other events that start later in the month running into December. Printing fabric ready to make into products was the first priority, as the ink has to dry for over a week before it can be worked with along with making up some more napkins and table runners to print on. The honeysuckle table runner was fun to work on. It was great to work with pink for a change!
Making knot bags for the Etsy shop was something that I also finally got around to doing
and with peoples' minds turning to Christmas I have had some orders to make stocking lables. It's a lovely thing to be able to do and gets me using my freemotion embroidery skills.
At South Brent Art House there was a chance to experiment with making monotypes which is great fun and I have been working on a quirky little print with the original idea being taken from a cushion I made a while ago using freemotion embroidery.
The Modbury Craft Fair was at the end of November where there are always a good group of people and stall holders to chat to. Now to get ready for the South Hams Arts Forum 'Present Makers Exhibition' at Harbour House in Kingsbridge, which starts on Tuesday 29th November for three weeks.
It will soon be countdown to Christmas ........hope you have your advent calendar prepared
.........and your stockings at the ready
