Sewing Machine Disaster! (And September Market News)

I had plans this arvo to sew up all the teddies, elephants and octopuses I had cut out earlier in the week. But I’ve had a disaster! My sewing machine has stopped working. Well actually it does work but as soon as it is turned on it starts sewing – and sewing hard. I don’t even have the accelerator pedal plugged in. I have booked it into the local sewing machine repair centre and hopefully I’ll have it back tomorrow. Here it is all packed up ready to go.

In the meantime I’ve had to settle for writing. But ‘cos it is such a nice day (apart from the horrible wind), I am writing this on paper first while I sit outside in the beautiful sunshine.

I think spring has arrived!

I have been sick this week so haven’t felt like blogging and as such haven’t reported on the market last weekend. I thought Father’s Day might keep a lot of people away, but it was fairly busy. I made my first sale at 9am and it didn’t stop until after 1pm. There was lots of positive feedback and one woman even came back to tell me that my stall was the best thing she had seen all day!

The elephants attracted a lot of attention as did the teddies, octopuses and woolly balls. There will be a whole range of new ones for the October Market – the first market of the summer season – just so long as my sewing machine can be fixed in time!

This is one of the new in-progress teddies waiting to be finished.
