The ‘big one’ is not too far away now.
March 2013 seems a long way off…..
….. but not if you count it in weeks.
Weeks, in which to create and make ….
… as well as all the other day to day jobs that have to be done.
It isn’t really that long at all.
It will soon be here.
A week long fair in London.
Wednesday to Sunday.
You have to make enough stuff to last for five days…..
….. so I am busy making now.
Hearts and bunnies and other fripperies.
This week though, I am making my tag pictures.
Pictures made up of mini collages of vintage finds sewn onto teeny tags.
Tags made from vintage ephemera.
Choosing the right vintage treasure, snippet of lace, button or key to complement each tag ……
….. juxtaposing the right tag with its neighbour .....
The show is a
killer long one.
Five days and one evening ……
….. but you meet some lovely people - stall holders and visitors alike…….
….. and see some beautiful things.
The Christmas Fair is first, of course, in November, but I don’t make that one.
So, 22 weeks to prepare, create and make.
For the Country Living Spring Fair 2013.
