My first craft stall

After an evening working out just how to fit everything I needed for a stall into the bottom of my daughter's buggy I was finally ready for my first ever craft event.

I'd spent the previous two weeks crazy busy trying to make up more stock, cut more pillow boxes and business cards as well as finish up my new butterfly bunting. Due to space constraints I didn't get to show off my stock as well as I had wanted but apart from that it went really well.

Lots of people came to admire what I had made and ask about it (they all got given business cards and perhaps I'll hear back from some of them) as well quite a few buying my crochet hair clips. One customer did go away with two matching pairs of baby booties for her soon to be twin grandsons - I hope they like them :-)

Blog mention - SIBOL

One of my favourite blogs to visit is SIBOL (Sunshine International Blankets Of Love) which is a wonderful place filled with hundreds of beautiful granny squares which get made up into lap blankets and taken round to care homes for the elderly.

Unfortunately I don't get around to making many as many squares for SIBOL as I would like but after seeing Mrs Twins request for crochet butterflies I couldn't resist making up a couple along with a little stash of butterflies.

Mrs Twins has just received my little package of crochet and has written a new blog post about it which you can find here. Thanks for posting about me Sue & thanks so much for all the wonderful work you and SIBOL do.

New hair clips

Coming up with colour combinations for hair clips is fast becoming one of my favourite 'jobs' so far...

Any yarn that I have left over from making booties is getting finished up doing these pretty hair clips so nothing gets wasted here at Pretty Crochet Things.

I'm hoping to try selling these at a local toddler group this week so wish me luck with that! Any stock I have left over will be added to my Etsy store so don't worry, everyone can get a chance to buy some of these new hair clips.

Going local

A selection of my booties are going to be visiting a local summer fair this Saturday along with a few flower hair clips too.

The last few days I've been busy getting them all ready and packed up and as this is the first time that I've seen them all together at once I thought I would snap a quick photo for you all...

Can any of you spot the latest colour combination in there?
