Wishing you all a Happy Christmas!

Here we are again with another Christmas Artisans' Bazaar at the Fish Slab Gallery in Whitstable. I've been sewing into the small hours to get things finished in time. It was a relief to finally open the doors to the public and we've had a busy first day with lots of sales despite the snow.
I really look forward to spending a few days with the other makers and there are so many beautiful things.

I've been making a few cloth books of late for some special first birthdays.
The monkey is a likeness of a favourite toy and has a squeaker in him.
The tea cup represents all the coffee mornings (and afternoons) spent at the Tudor Tearooms, and Bob is her little pull along dog.
This is broccoli and blueberries, the only food that passed her lips for quite some time, and of course the last page is Betty tucked up in bed.
She likes this page best.
Here's Betty's special friend Oliver's.
Here I've added a stirring spoon. The sail boat has crinkly flapping sails.
Oliver lives on the top of a very steep hill.
