    Barnbum inspired me to go out and look in my box of goodies that I will be taking to the holiday craft fairs.



    This isn't for sale. I hope to improve upon this and make several fabric book covers school note books.

    Some odd hot pads and a set of four fabric coasters.

    I've NEVER been able to sell any of these. So, FWIW, I just keep trying.

    Hi. We're a bunch of useless hot pads nobody wants. It's not like we want you putting something piping hot on us anyway ...

    One of MANY stripped Christmas stockings. This one is my personal stocking I made for me. They always look good hanging on our Holiday Table at craft fairs anyway.

    Hi. The lady that made me really likes me and doesn't offer me for sale.

    BOUNTIFUL TABLE Thanksgiving table runner. I blew it on this one using the white. I should have picked an off white or darker color.

    Couple Christmas table items.


    The "Kiddie Table" table runner. This is a Mt. Redoubt design kit.

    General twisted star table toppers. These are the items that seem to sell the most.

    Wow!

    The quilts I've been working on lately all have good sides pieces and I've been wondering what to do when they are done, and I was half afraid the answer was a quilt with teeny tiny pieces that might never get done. Your wonderful piles of crafts is the answer. So many beautiful things all in one post! If you made those to sell I can't imagine how wonderful the things you make to keep are!

    I can't afford to sell the Mt. Redoubt kit design. No one would pay me what I've invested in that one. That's the Kiddie Table Runner we use at our house when we have the Holiday Dinner. My mom thinks it should be a wall hanging. But, who really uses wall hangings?



    This one's MINE! (Christmas)

    The book cover will be lovely as a personal journal cover.
    It didn't work out. I used fabric I thought the kids would like. But, it doesn't "fit" as well as I'd like.

    But, turns out that I do use that notebook myself. I'll be making more of them. I might have better luck on the hard cover binders.

    That's a shame I love those red cardinals and the church Steeple!

    I know who uses wall hangings. ;) The people who make them. :D

    cordelia - you have such a lot of talent, I don't understand why any of your work shouldn't sell, as I personally think they are all exceptional :D :D

    Your stuff is awesome!! I love that twisted star pattern--and the shape is perfect for a table. I'm amazed those cool potholders don't sell! They look wonderful and sure would brighten up a kitchen.

    I think wall hangings would sell! I have several up in many rooms in our house--or am I weird? :lol:

    And the stocking is cool too!

    I think I'll be surprised by what sells and what doesn't?

    Do you stick to table toppers since that is what sells? If you're sick of that pattern--will you try another?

    Thanks, Izy. I do sell the star table toppers. (I'm sick of making them.) I don't know what to expect this year. Fuel and food prices have gone up considerably (due to exceedingly foolish policy) here in the U.S. A lot of families are going to be a lot more frugal this year.

    oh Cordelia those things are lovely, is that twisted star a pattern you can share? It looks like the perfect size for my end tables and I have some leftovers from the curtains. I hope you and Karla do well but like you said people are going to be tight with their money, at least those of us who don't have plenty!
