Yesterday was my first Christmas market of the season. Hosted my Arnos Vale- which is so beautiful, you should really visit if you can- the Christmas Fayre was very jolly! I had a constant stream of customers, and all of them were very chatty, happy and enthusiastic about my new products! The Christmas Pop Up Sewing Emporium was much talked about as well- especially since our feature in The Bristol Magazine- and I am hopeful of a good turn out for the day, especially since Picton Street Market will be on just around the corner.
I had made some delicious new Velvet Christmas Stockings which sold like hot cakes, as did my new look Mini Top Hat Kits and Fascinator Kits which made me so happy. I have completely sold out of Christmas Bunting and Festive Bunnies, in fact I sold out of Christmas Bunting about half an hour after we opened!!
I shall be stitching more together over the week for my next Christmas Market on Saturday 7th December in Clifton, as well as for the Christmas Pop Up Sewing Emporium to which you are all of course invited! I am also loading all of my Christmassy products on to Etsy… last shipping for the US of A is … and UK is … so grab a bargain whilst you can if you can’t make the Markets, although it is always lovely to meet you all! As you can see from the pictures, I am also offering 3 for 2 on my Mini Kits (simply buy two on Etsy and Convo me the one you would like free!), as well as my Zines. Both of which make excellent stocking fillers for beginner and advances Seamsters alike- even my Nan said she learnt a couple tricks from them!!
Many things happen at midnight, if you know what I mean. And no, not that creepy belief where lots of things come out during this time, I’m talking about the other stuff. Nowadays, it is usually the time where college student would wake up to do their home works, projects or reports or they would just wake up because the internet is so much faster so they could like play online games.
It is thrilling to sneak out of your house, apartment or dorm during this time in order to go somewhere, like the beach or a field with your friends, your partner or just by yourself and just admire the clear sky above and the moon hovering over you. It is also the ideal time to go to parties or clubs since everyone in your house is most likely asleep, so they won’t know of your escapades. But sometimes, midnight involves activities that only two people would know. No one can disturb you and no one would know since it is dark. Midnight is always the ideal time to keep secrets.

Later on this week I shall me continuing Christmas Month with more tutorials including a Stocking and Gift Bag tutorial, and hopefully start on some Gift tutorials.
Phewph! I love all this hustle and bustle but January is starting to look beautifully calm right now!
