Sod's Law

What did I tell you... the two new aprons I made last week remained untouched, unloved and unsold at Open Studios over the weekend just as I predicted. But that does mean they have been listed in my Etsy shop this morning.
 
 
But I cannot complain because I have had two weekends with lots of lovely visitors, a chance to meet new people, catch up with old friends and generally have a good time. And of course, the added bonus is that I have sold quite a few bits and pieces. All but one of my new vintage cloth tea cosies have sold

 
As well as all but one note book. So you'll find those in the Etsy shop too.

 
And I also sold this pink bag over the weekend... so that has been removed from the shop! Although remember you can still buy the pattern to make your own bag.

 
So that is Open Studios over for another year. Today's job is to try to get the house back to normal and then I'm packing and preparing for Missenden Abbey next week where I will be teaching at Summer School. But I'll be back at some point this week because Penny has nominated me in a blog hop... I'll need to get my thinking cap on for that one!

  5. I had hardly worn an apron for years until recently, they always made me feel like I was becoming my mum, but lately I've taken to wearing one all the time - a sign of age?

  6. Gina, your open studio sounds like a success to me. It's wonderful to have folks able to see all that you create, and for you to get their feedback.

    Of course, it's even better to have those folks buy some of those creations! Great for you to receive that sort of appreciation, too.

    Best wishes for another enjoyable time at Missenden Abbey. Those students are in for a treat.
