A Tatted Victorian Reticule

That's a little drawstring tatted bag to you and me ! I've just finished the 3rd round, , only 8 more to go.....

It's going to be a very small evening bag. I'm hoping it turns out nice. It's taking aaaaaaages to make !

Downhearted :(

Well the disaster that was Saturday's summer fair has really got me down. Everyone oooohhhssss and aaahhhhsssss over my jewellery but no one ever buys it. Yet I see similar stuff online that sells for 2 or 3 times more than I ask for mine.
I love tatting, its my hobby, I don't expect to make a fortune selling it but other people sell plenty of it. Just having a bit extra money would be great. It would pay for my hobby for a start.

Why is it people would rather spend money on mass-produced crap than buy something handmade and unique ?

So do I bother trying to sell my jewellery or just give it away ? I won't give up  tatting because I love it. But I'm wasting my time at these craft fairs.

Feeling very down.

Getting ready for tomorrow s fair

Very much looking forward to the school fair at Peases West School tomorrow ! Just washed /stiffened a load of very girlie bracelets, they will be getting clasps on later when they're dry. I really enjoy doing fairs, would be even better if I sold  lots of my stuff !

Not posted for aaaaaaages ! Life takes over again. 

Anyway I did Fyndoune Community College summer fair a couple of weeks ago and this weekend im at Peases West School summer fair too. So I've been making lots of girlie bracelets, amongst other things.  I'll get some pics up tomorrow.
