I was really pleased to finish my Bird Doorstops this week (I'm opting for "bird" as there seems to be much debate over the species!).
Somehow, I've managed to sew a crease into the fabric on one of them (I think the base had been cut out slightly wonky) but I needed one for my bedroom anyway, so I'll be keeping that one. So three more items for my Craft Fair Stock bag! I've used different stuffing than that that I used for the original one and if I'm honest, I don't like it so much (it was a bit clumpy). I only really noticed a difference as I was putting the kids to bed and moving Bird I into place on George's bedroom door - it seems a little "plumper". Still, it won't be there at the fair for comparison and next time I need stuffing I'll know which type to buy.
Other than finishing these, my week has passed quickly in a haze of school/sport/children related activities. I thought this last half term would be a bit of a drag, especially given the impending Move to Big School for number 1 son but it's going by in a flash!
Thank you all for your helpful comments last week in regard to making cushions for Craft Fairs. I've decided I'm going to go with some covers and some pads, then people can see what the cover looks like "on" but can decide whether they want to buy it with or without the pad. My next job craft wise is to make said cushion covers but due to a cricket match on Saturday morning and then a tournament all day Sunday (to say nothing of Husband's birthday tomorrow and Fathers Day) I'm not sure that there will be a lot of crafting in these parts next week. Still, I shall keep an eye on what everyone else has been up to via Handmade Monday regardless (http://handmadeharbour.blogspot.co.uk/).
Hope you all have a fab week,
