market stall in mind

i finally dropped off my order to shona at funky fabrix and have decided to dedicate the next two weeks to building up enough stock to hold my own market stall. i haven't got a huge array of items for a stall but i guess i have to start somewhere and i can gauge the publics interest in my products and try to build on my designs. i am dedicating parts of Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday to my stitching and other things that relate to my stall. i am giving you a sneak peek at something we have been working on for the stall... mick built them and the girls painted the sealer. mia really enjoys anything crafty and is always asking to stitch or paint, i just need to be less lazy and set it up for her. lili loves to paint and is working on her own little project for the stall. and here is a peek at the second stage of production., these colours are just lovely and hopefully appealing to the public. i am in the process of giving them that pre-loved look but i am not sure how good they will look. i will post a picture of the end product...can you guess what they are?? so that is my plan...petrie markets here i come :) wish me luck. happy weekend xx rosey
