I would like to thank everybody who visited me on my stall in Holywell yesterday. I had a very successful day and thoroughly enjoyed meeting so many people, including many new customers. If you have arrived here by following the address on my little business cards then I extend a very warm welcome to you. Thank you for stopping by!
I received a great many smiles and compliments during the course of the day and the biggest hit of the fayre were my Itty Bitty Kitties. They were bought by young and old alike and I daresay I shall be making some more in the future!
My plan now is to start working on an Etsy shop and sell things through them. I've been planning it for a long time but I think the time has come to put my plans into action. Watch this space!

Wonky ears, wonky arms, wonky smile. Could you love a Wonky Bear? I know I do!
These bears are made from cotton print fabric and don't have any safety eyes or buttons. They'll be available on my stall at the Craft Fayre in Holywell this Saturday. Two more sleeps!
Tonight will be spent making a couple of my bestselling dinosaurs and if there's still time after that I hope to print out some signs for my stall.

I made five monsters out of lovely cotton print fabrics and they will be available to buy at the craft fayre in Holywell on Saturday. Things are slowly starting to come together now and my stock is increasing by the day. I did have a slight panic about a lack of table to display my things on but a friend came to the rescue and it looks like everything will go smoothly...fingers crossed. It doesn't even matter if it rains as I shall be all cosied up in the marquee with my flask of tea. Lovely!
You may wonder why only four monsters are pictured here. Well, I fell in love with the fifth one and decided to keep it for myself. It has since been adopted by my nearly six month old Grandson who loves it to bits!

The latest toy to come from my sewing table is a soft and cuddly frog. I decided not to use any safety eyes or buttons so they are extra-safe for children. I have made four of them ready for this weekend and the tummy patches come in a variety of colours which means they are excellent gifts for both boys and girls. My son has his eye on this particular one and I have a feeling it won't make it as far as the craft and produce fayre in Holywell on Saturday!
I've had a request to make some monsters and that's what I plan to do this afternoon. It's so windy out there at the moment; I'm very glad to be cosied up indoors with a good cup of tea and some music for company. Not to mention all of the wonderful fabric that I keep collecting!

My new Itty Bitty Kitties are proving very popular with both children and adults alike. I initially decided to sell them as pocket money toys for children but have so far sold two as pincushions! If you would like an Itty Bitty Kitty in a particular colour then please contact me at email@example.com and I shall be happy to make a custom one just for you.

I am very pleased to introduce Oggie, the Welsh Dragon. He is a Limited Edition toy and can be found exclusively at The Mill on the Hill Tea Rooms in Holywell. You can find out more about the warm and friendly tea rooms at www.themillonthehill.co.uk and if you decide to pay a visit then I can heartily recommend the homemade Welsh Oggies and Welsh Rarebit. Thoroughly tried and tested by yours truly - they've got the YUM Factor!
I've had a wonderful time making Oggie and I'm excited to see where my itchy stitchin' fingers take me next. Watch this space and don't forget that I am more than happy to take custom orders and requests. Just contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I shall reply as soon as possible.
