A Sunday spent....

Today has been a funny old day.

I woke up at 7 (actually 8 thanks to the clocks going forward) to the dog yapping as he wanted out. Then I tried in vain to sleep some more. No such luck. So I took the bright morning sun as an opportunity to take some photos of the latest set of brooches i've made. There they are attached to my knitting bag. I have plans for that bag! More of that later this week hopefully.

Then Chris and I went to the cinema to see The Damned United. Oh it was good! I do actually have an interest in football though it isn't really needed. It's more about Brian Clough than the football. Michael Sheen is awesome. What a great impersonator, we saw him in Frost/Nixon too and he was brilliant.

Then we walked into town taking a wee detour to look in the window of LoveOne where my bags, bunting and brooches (all the B's) are being sold. Nothing has gone :( Though some of my business cards have. I am finding all this lack of selling rather demoralising now. I love making things to sell but if no-one buys anything what's the point of it all?

I must be patient and stay positive. And remember the big plans Chris and I have! (very exciting if it happens) and I may have a group exhibition coming up so that's something to look forward to as well. Back to the sketchbook!!

I do love your brooches, made from such wonderful fabrics.

Don't get too down about a slow start to your sales at Cathy's. Your bunting only went in a week or so ago which is no time at all! Give it a couple of weekends of nice weather and I'm sure you will get lots of interest!

I found your blog through folksy, and think that your designs are lovely! I have recently started selling my own jewellery through folksy and etsy, and have found sales slow to say the least, but don't despair! I find that arts fairs are the most successful place to sell and they are good fun too. Good luck!
