Hello my friends!

I haven't posted for a while. Usually after a craft market sale, I would give myself a 1 or 2 day break from sewing. This inevitably turns into a 1 week break. Yep, the same thing happened again. It's not that I need such a long break. It's just that I can't get back into my sewing mode. However much I tried, I just wasn't in the mood to make anything.

Me hubs kept saying to me: I don't see you sewing.

You may not know this but me hubs nag is worse than his bite. To avoid listening to his naggs, I pretended to sew. Yes, I'm so pathetic. I would sit at my sewing table with my fabric laid out nicely. And I would do something else like read. Once he's gone to work, I would stop pretending to sew and watch my Law and Order Season 17. This went on for a week. Funnily enough, while I was pretending to be busy with my creations, I ended up with some applique shapes which I like a lot. Yes, one of my pretend sewing was cutting fabric. With these applique shapes I decided I would make a few denim zip pouches with my last bit of denim.

Here they are, my pretend denim zip pouches. Please forgive the quality of the photos. I was very hungry when I took them and the sun was setting really fast.
Bendy flower.
Tall flower.
Big headed flower. I've made a similar one before.
I surrender flower. 
I started with the heart and thought it would look so great as an alien looking flower that's surrendering.
Heart petals.

Oh, I don't want anyone to say to me: So flower-flower.

I have news. I'll be selling my bags THIS WEEKEND at a new place. Details below:

Open Doors Weekend Market
Orchard Central (next to 313@Somerset)
Saturday and Sunday, 4th & 5th Sep
11am-8pm both days

I've never sold here before but it's indoors so no worries about rain, sun or wind. It's a good thing my sewing mojo is back because I just counted my stock and I had a grand total of 4 bags and 2 pouches left after my SAM sale. This is so insane. I have just a few days to increase my stock. See ya. Gotta go sew.

I love those pouches! So pretty! Makes me want to try my hand at applique.

Good luck increasing your supplies in time! I pretend, too sometimes. Sort of. Say I'm tired, need a nap to get enough energy to work and then go sneak off to read. I hope our guys don't read these things!

I liked your description of the last fair you sold at - I think I would have worn earplugs. The best part is, that you sold alot. Congrats!
