My mind is still trying to get around the fact that we had our First Ever Craft Sale Experience. Whirlwind is not a strong enough word to describe the experience (literally and figuratively!). When we first arrived at Warley Woods on Sunday to set up our tent and tables for the annual Picnic in the Park, we were a little apprehensive, nervous, dubious, discouraged and ready to pack up and go home because of the cold, wind, grey clouds and rain that were threatening. I’m so glad we held strong and just soldiered on… because wow. What an amazing day it turned out to be! The rain stopped, the clouds parted… and the people came to picnic!
During the few minutes of calm before people started to arrive, I tried to take a few photos of our set up and some of the beautiful handmade things my fellow Crafty Muthas brought along to sell…
This is our banner that we made. Each of us were responsible for making 2 letters, Ceri did the patchwork of all the squares, and Jennie sewed the backing on… a group effort!
Some of Jennie’s owls made of felted wool sweaters.
Natalie’s rings, nestled in the lentils! And no craft table is complete without some gingham.
This is Rachel in her element… She was a craft sale demon that day, front and centre most of the time!
I just wanted to say thank you to Jayne, Ceri, Natalie, Rachel and Jennie for sharing this awesome experience with me… and CONGRATULATIONS for how well we did… so very proud of us.
