My creative space - Orders

I am very busy and very creative this morning. I am finishing off my lovely tea towel cushions for the markets on Sunday. All of them have fabulous fringing or pom poms on them. They look a bit nana, but I hope in a contemporary way. I will show you the finished cushions tomorrrow.

Also, I am sending off my second order to the US today and so have been packing it up, nice and snug. I haven't really organised my visual and graphic design for my label yet, but it will have some of the elements  in the picture.

I got my trusty Olivetti typewriter out and typed the etsy address of the shop and machine sewed it to the header. Would you believe I had to type that address seven times! I am so dependent on computers with the backspace button and spellcheck that my typing has really degenerated. I can remember a time in typing class, all those years ago, that I had to type out a full A4 page with a maximum of 5 mistakes. I am lucky to write a sentence nowadays within those parameters!

I have also been playing around with my market stall during the week. I know, it is a bit daggy and a bit like Playschool, but I was so excited when I finished my bunting! I felt like giving the family monopoly money and we could play pretend markets. I think it came up a treat myself and am pretty chuffed. I have also had a good response with the bunting in our etsy shop, with several enquiries for, would you believe it, weddings!

  1. Your stall is looking great! Love your butings & your cushions. Aaahhh, typing class...yes, I remember...why were the typing teachers always! I used to be a little frightened, but i did love the good old fashioned typewriter.

  2. Love the bunting. I had to laugh when you explained that you had to redo that label seven times! stalls looking great.

  3. Your stall looks fabulous...and I am doing the very same thing at the moment. Your bunting is so lovely and congrats on your orders and fabulous feedback. Hope you have a super week :)
