I tried putting them all out in order this afternoon. I have a few more to make yet, to go around again - twelve pink and ten white for the sides, and then the flowery corners which are already done. I am going to join with the blue from the centre square, and possibly edge in blue if I have enough. It's looking so pretty already, I can't wait until it's done!

This is only half of the stalls, the whole square was full! It's a definite perk of living in a sweet little market town.

I am really pleased with how the squares look so far, I think it's going to be a pretty blanket!

The pink striped fabric at the front is a pillow case, the brown retro floral is a bed sheet, and the pretty floral at the back is a pair of curtains. They will all be something different in no time though I'm sure! The little deer ornament will join my ever-increasing collection of deers, it's becoming a bit of an obsession! The floral ceramic jar is some kind of pomander (according to the lady in the shop - I only bought it because I liked the pretty floral!) so I need to find a nice home for it! I was quite pleased with it all, so much luck in one day!

Little Birds A5 Sketchbook/Notebook by Rama and Jude
I'm off to "Stitch and Bitch" tonight, I think there's going to be some granny square action - I haven't had a chance to do any for about two weeks!

So I have been a busy bee today, made all the more impressive by the fact that we went to see The Manic Street Preachers last night and I'm exhausted!

The yarn I have used is cotton and acrylic, and it's very thick, so each individual triangle only needs to be two rounds of trebles for them to be quite large. I really like them - I am hoping to get three sets of bunting from the four balls, and at the rate I'm going I will be done in no time!
Along with all of this, there is a pattern for this little cutie pie; Chico Chihuahua!
It's a fab magazine, and I have already subscribed and cannot wait for the next issue - definitely worth a look!

My flea Market find this week is actually from a couple of weeks ago, and it wasn't me that found it, but I'm pretty sure it still counts!

I got a bunch of different stuff - lots of cotton, and some bamboo, which I've never tried before! It was quite nice to be able to go shopping with money that wasn't my own, it felt rather frivolous!
This afternoon I have been working on some sketchbook stuff, I have been trying to accumulate images for inspiration and to kick start the creative process. So far though I'm just cutting and sticking. But I'm sure it will lead somewhere!
Next on my list is to make some labels for my new stock, I am always happy when I have to make things to replace what has sold!
