What a Week

Its been a big week.  I didn't think I could have a busy week like I did before our trip but the week after has been worse.  On my day off on Thursday I don't think I sat down at all for the whole day.

It was also a week full of some highs and some lows.

The high point is the quilt top is finished and I have backing and wadding ready to baste at sewing this week then I will be quilting like a demon and writing up the pattern.

Another high was the fact that Hetties rang and they had sold out of my Ipod pouch patterns.  

The low point was the Gilles Street Market today.  I didn't think it was possible to sell nothing but I did (I did sell 4 purses to the girls that I shared the stall with heavily discounted so I don't think I will count those).

Even this prop (which I bought at the market) didn't help, at least it will be good for photo's in the future and it was a real bargain.

Amanda, that's bad luck. I can't imagine why, your stuff is so gorgeous. I'm doing a market in a few weeks and it's always in the back of your mind that you might be wasting your time isn't it. So sorry to hear this. On a better note, your quilt is fabulous.

Im sorry it wasn't a great day. Obviously idiots who don't appreciate quality handmade attended that market!

LOVE that quilt.

love your quilt, retail seems difficult at the moment, at least you are selling ipod covers! Your creations look fabulous btw!

Yes it's a terrible feeling when you have a bad market. You think of all the time and effort you have put into it and with no 'rewards' except for your lovely mannequin. I bought one recently and when husband finally remembers to send me a photo from his phone I will put it on my poor neglected blog.

Congrats on the quilt finish. Sorry your market didn't live up to expectations.
