After the Sale

It's been over and done with for more than a week now, but I had a good experience with the art sale that I was participating in. While I didn't take an actual count, I think I sold about half of the items I brought. The other artists were fun to chat and visit with and it was neat to meet the customers and talk about some of the things I'd made. I really have no desire to join the craft show circuit and do a sale every weekend, but this was a good opportunity to try it out. I'll likely do the same one next year.

In the last week, I've been working on all of the things that I'd postponed until the sale was over - sewing and otherwise. Most of the sewing is for other people. I've decided that once I finish the things I've currently agreed to do, I'm not taking anything else until January.

S liked the idea of the bigger star pillow when I dropped off the other pillows, so I made one that is 50% bigger than the hanging ones. To give you an idea of its size, here it is on my couch with another pillow:

Large Christmas Star Pillow

And here it is with my two-year-old daughter:

S thought a couple more of the hanging ones would be good, too. I made two more just like the first ones.

Next Up: an apologetic apron.


  1. Your daughter is just a cutie pie=)

  2. Ah looks like she should own that pillow :)
    I love the size of those pillows.
    Nice to hear you did well. I think doing one of these sales would fun but I agree one a year would be enough.

  3. Do you have a pattern for these?
