Sewing & crochet makes part 1

This is my reason for lack of computer time at the moment, one thing for sure I'm covering my 20 minutes a day crafting challenge! Back in November we held our first monthly craft/produce market in the village and I'm pleased to say that it's been a success and we have 15 regular stalls. Because it's been so successful we are going to open every Wednesday morning in August and are having an extra one this weekend on Easter Saturday. We are very lucky in that everyone gets on well with each other so it's a pleasant place to be on a Saturday morning. We are also moving to new premises until the winter so will have bigger tables, I will no longer have to cram everything onto a tiny round table! I do tend to make a lot of stock mainly because during the next few months I will be busy tending the allotment but also because I'm always finding new fabric!
Egg cosies, there are more, children's ones, but I haven't taken photos yet.

I thought I'd make some lavender hangies for the boys, I've made some cowboy ones too using a fab Michael Miller fabric, for some reason I can't move the photos around so these are further down the page.

Some softies.


Tea cosies.
Bags.


Tiny bags for little girls.

Tissue holders.
So there you go life will soon resume to normal and then I can complete Dolly Dollop's crochet stool cover, finish some string quilting projects and catch up with the last month of recipes on the 52 week recipe challenge as well as get up to date with everyone's blogs of course!
