House of cute

Today is the first day in too many days that the sun is out. The wind is also out but oh the joy of having a break in the torrential rain….I can literally feel the sun recharging my batteries. I spent the rainy weekend sewing for the craft fairs. The first one is in FIVE days now and I am finally beginning to freak out. Far too much still to do. If last night is an indication it will be a week of 4am bedtimes and a very grumpy Steph. Poor Dave! But without being too arrogant I think it will be totally worth it when I set up my stall with things like this:

Felt house and playscape

I am inappropriately proud of this thing. It’s entirely handstitched because apparently I am that crazy. Needlefelted vegetable garden and rainbow rocks down the path. It’s backed with a layer of grey felt to hide the stitching and I am going to price it at around a million dollars. Seriously though, I tend to price my stuff far too low and this is definitely going to be priced more appropriately because if someone looks at it and doesn’t see all the effort and hours of my life poured into it then I don’t think they deserve to own it. Rude but you know what I mean? I have another one half made and then I would love to make a couple for etsy for Christmas but then I am absolutely making myself one.

    love it, and you should definitely price your stuff higher, if someone wants it that bad for themselves for for a giftie, the price shouldn’t matter too much. plus it’s a craft fair full of all kinds of homemade goodness, people should understand they are supporting independent business craft folk ๐Ÿ˜‰

  15. W.O.W. !
    I’m like you I don’t count my work time enough… but it is also a matter of meeting the right public…
    This is really pretty and I hope you’ll get the price your efforts deserve

  16. hum.. or rather… the right “audience”/potential customers…
