And that was that! I did my 2 days on the stall and it was fun. Exhausting but fun. I sold enough yarn to cover my costs and I was really pleased about that. On Saturday it must have been about 80 degrees so, selling yarn then was a feat. It was very satisfying to hear people say 'Wow!' as they walked past and even if people didn't stop the managed to give the yarn a squish on the way. This was the stall on the Saturday early morning:

And a closer look at the goodies:

My husband was selling his furniture at the stall next to me so that was cosy - lol.

It was a long and busy 2 days but I really enjoyed it. There was loads of interest in the felt so I'm hurriedly making a webiste now as I foolishly promised people it would be up and running by the end of the week (words like, rod, own back, own worst enemy are bouncing into my mind for some reason)

I met some lovely people - Champagne Bohemian popped by with her family and very kindly bought some yarn as did Brigit from the It's Not Easy Being Green forums and Sunpuppy from Downsizer. So, exhausted but happy is the order of this week. I'll post a link to the website when it's done - back soon.

Sorry to post again Stacey but was just wondering if you sell your yarn online (have looked on your blog and cant find anything but that could well be my lack of looking properly!).

I'm just designing the website now :) I've never done it before and I've gone boggle eyed - lol. Hopefully it'll be up and running by the end of the week. I'm not going to woolfest unfortunately - I'd love to but it's too far and too soon.

Thanks everyone - I'm a bit bothered now as I haven't used the logo on the website. I've made it look quite posh in creams and browns. Should I change it to use the gladys logo do you think?
