Have been making evening/ party bags with the Katia Ondas yarn, getting ready for Christmas etc, went to sew up the lining for them and discovered that when I took out the bobbin to use the thread when hand stitching, I have " "misplaced" the bobbin housing!
No problem me thinks , will be in the green room or dining room.....wrong
Ok go on line and order spare.... wrong none to be found ................
So next week will be off searching for a sewing machine shop to try and get a replacement!!!!!
Must have chucked it out by accident when clearing the dining room table!!!!
Not a happy chappy!!!!
However on the plus side I have made lots of new bottle cap zip pull, Angry birds, Kung Fu Panda and Keep Calm ones for this weekends events.
On Saturday I will be at Friends of the Earth Craft Fair in the Eric Liddle Centre in Morningside,then Sunday is Afternoon Twee at the Shed in Shawlands, Glasgow.

Hello and happy Monday, sorry it's been ages since I have posted, just have not seem to have time to sit down and update the blog! Smacked wrists all round!!!
Well since I last posted I have been to stacks of fairs and have lots of lovely days chatting to friends old and new and actually have started my Christmas Master Plan to buy some presents at each fair!!!
On Saturday I was at a new fair in Kilwinning Abbey Church Hall which is now been run on dates to coincide with the existing Farmers market. It was great fun, fab location and good sales all round!!!
There were also some familiar faces on both sides of the stalls Natalie from Tangent Crafts and her zaggs and purzes Steffi and Blair with Candi Bears, Marion and her mum with her great cards, the great Izzy Umbrella was also there, a familiar face from Moffat events!
This weekend will be a busy one too, I have the Friends of the Earth Craft Fair on Saturday in the Eric Lidell Centre in Morningside! 10:30 to 15:30, then a fab pizza tea me thinks before we head home!!!
