sewing like crazy

I have been sewing like crazy trying to get stuff ready for the stall I have in a couple of weeks.

This is a pile of finished chicks:A chick in progress (along with 2 other chick wips not pictured):I also made thisit's a phone/ipod sock, but it went quite wrong when firstly the birds beak was too big and secondly when I burnt it on the iron, so this is very much a prototype

I've also taken pics of the felted blanket bundles, measured everything and stacked them all into envelopes to make sure they stay nice and clean (or so my cats don't try to sit on them)
If I have time tonight I'll pop them into my shop, otherwise it will be tomorrow. I need to go off and do more sewing to make sure I finish everything on todays list.

I love oink chick, so sweet and although it's gone wrong ( you said not me) looks good to me, love the ipod sock too, where's the stall going to be? x

So industrious! Everything looks great (esp. the ipod sock) - fingers crossed for a good sale.

And I completely understand about the cats. Mine only ever want to sit on clean laundry or fabric I'm about to make something with.

So much felty goodness going on here Monda! Love your birdies and really wish I could buy some of your felted blanket packs but unfortunately our coffers are resoundingly empty and I am feeling very guilty about the allotment book I bought today - off to read it now so I feel less guilty and more inspired!!!

I love your chicks - your hand stitching is beautiful! I also love the birdie on your ipod sock - great legs :)
I did the iron accident thing the other day too. Mine left black stuff on Minx's dolly dress just as I'd finished making it - ack!!!

Off to look at those lovely blanket bundles.....
