What I'm I planning to do with my goodies?
- Knit my Mum a beret for this winter with the yarn.
- The buttons were a bargain at £1 for the whole bag, I will definately have a use for these.
- Poka dot fabric is for next week treasure hunt that we are having for my daughter's birthday party.
- I couldn't resist the wool mix fabric at £3.50 per metre, maybe a bag?
- The red and white string is for a draw-string bag which I will make with the nautical fabric for the birthday party goodie bags.
Update: Look what I made in the evening:
These are for next week's treasure hunt goodie bags, all I need now are some chocolate coins. (I still need to sew the buttons on the draw-string bags).
I had some spare time (very rare indeed) and went on a sewing binge. Spent 4-5 hours sewing my socks off. I'm really pleased with the Robot Tissue Cozy, but the Bend the Rule Artsy Clutch went a bit wrong, but it will have to do. I used the buttons I bought today. Still happy that I got a good deal with the buttons. Hee! Hee!

So if anyone needs extra workspace and lives in London, this may be a good option as the prices are suppose to be reasonable and there appears to be a lot of support for artist and crafters. I'm planning on going to their open studio day event in Deptford either on Saturday 17 May or Sunday 18 May 2008. It is a chance for the public to meet the designers, their work and purchase some of their products. They also have professional development session which is about £20 for non studio owners such as marketing your products etc. May be worth a look and I will be taking my rascal (I think there may be a treasure hunt for the kids).

I've also found time to finish off my coasters. I bought the fabric from Ikea and my Mother asked me why I didn't sew round coasters instead of a square ones. Well the answer is that I can only sew in straight lines....Hee! Hee! It made her laugh though. Any tips for sewing in curves are welcome.
