The stakes are being well and truly upped when it comes to the Workshop Sale.
A quick glance at the website shows that some serious makers are going to be there this year - both at Portsmouth and the traditional site of East Dulwich, London.
So - no pressure then!
I'm done with the stock for now.
I stitched the necklaces and wrestled with some clasps!
I made the earrings! (that is one little pair lurking on the badly photographed earring stand)
By the way that stand is a defunct frame - I broke the glass by accident a while ago- with the board painted black and three leather 'strings' stretched across.
Now I just have to present a professional image - this first event is going to be in a professional gallery for goodness sake!
So, I found this gem in a junk shop! A quick sand down and a coat of varnish and lo - a little shelf for the table.
And I found this! Bargain!!!
I think it is a shoe stand, but I have a vision of it providing a stand for some of my prints.
And I also found some Ikea brackets in the same junk shop. I am hoping that this slightly 'heath robinson' affair will suffice to support a couple of the mounted pictures. I got drummed out of wood work at school, in case you are wondering!
But look - it worked! At least it does on the lounge carpet!
Meantime, I had a wrestling match with Facebook! I did not set out to do this, but I have created a 'Page'. If you are on Facebook, do please like us, then at least my 2 1/2 hours won't have been completely wasted!
