Five and a half years after I got the stuff to make it, it's done. The advent calendar. It needs some quilting to stabilize the layers a bit, but in general I'm happy with how it turned out. It's not clear from the photo, but each little square is a pocket to put your gift into.
Unfortunately it is now firmly linked to feelings of guilt in my head so I can't possible keep it. Think I'll try to sell it at the craft fair in October. How do you craft sale veterans decide how to price your pieces?
I was supposed to be stockpiling crafty goodness to sell, but I've realized that with 2 kids home all over the summer and no help with childcare, I am highly unlikely to get anything much done. Also, I found out today that Johnny has not got a preschool place in September, so my 2 mornings off a week will also not be happening. Feeling a bit bogged down by it to be truthful. I like my kids so much more when I have a little bit of breathing space away from them and that's just not happening at the moment.
