Work in progress!

The past days, I've been cutting fabric, ironing, sewing, sewing, sewing and ironing again... I have some new fabrics coming up, hopefully by Monday or Tuesday.
I start feeling stressed about the Winter fair: only two weeks and half left! And still haven't prepared anything for the display... I've been busy making new care labels and business cards (was running out of the previous bunch) and ordering some packaging material. I should receive everything by the end of next week, so I hope to be able to spend some time scouting antique markets for trays/boxes and fabric to lay on my stand.
I've seen this adorable vintage apple tray on etsy, but it would ship from Canada and unfortunately Canadian post office has prohibitive fares to Europe. It would have been perfect to display my earrings and brooches.

Black and White: sweet or mysterious?

I don't know if it is because it is Friday the 13th today but I felt inspired by black and white. I am usually naturally drawn by colour as perhaps the combination of black and white evokes seriousness, mystery, cold thrillers from the 50's or even creepiness for me. However I found some really pretty fabrics in those two shades and as I was finishing making them into purses I thought I'd search Etsy for some nice black and white finds. And for my great delight I found some really cute items and some other rather mysterious... I am definitely reconciled with Black'n'White!
What about you, what does this colour combination evokes you?

My first winter fair!

I am going to participate to the Bentley Priory winter fair in Stanmore, North London on the 5th December. It is home to the Battle of Britain so the organisers planned some guided tours as well.
I am happy but a bit scared at the same time as this is a first time for me... I have a bit more than three weeks now to get ready, which means a lot of sewing for me! I think I will make more of my little brooches, earrings and barrettes as they compliment my bags but are much cheaper, perfect for little holiday gifts.
