Craft induced sleep deprivation!

This is the reason for my lack of posts & comments on blogs recently
I had a table at a local craft fayre today & much of my time recently has been taken up with creating stock for my table. I didn't get to bed until 2.30 am today as I was making flannel swiss rolls (I didn't sell a single one lol). I was so worried about not having enough stock, but needn't have been worried - you can't see what wouldn't fit on the table! I was so fortunate that my middle daughter took a days holiday to come & help me, her wages were a bacon butty, chocolate bar - & numerous other things which seem to being added to, including a new pair of washing up gloves lol. I didn't sell any cards - 2 cardmakers asked me questions (did I use a die cutter & what do I use to colour my images), but other than that there was no interest in my cards, & I don't think that they were overpriced. I covered the cost of my table & took more besides, so I was happy (though I didn't quite get to the target I had set myself). I have got a table booked at a ladies evening at a local school soon, so hope to sell some more stock, & a friend asked me for a neutral coloured nappy cake this evening which I had already made up for todays fayre :-)
I'm going to head off to bed very shortly (matchsticks will not work today), but will be back to catching up with your lovely blogs & leaving comments again as soon as I can.

tfl & for any comments you may care to leave
