A ‘parliament’ of owls

Turns out a group of owls is called a parliament… I did not know that! You learn something new every day!

Parliament is definitively in session here at our house!

I’ve been busy making these little guys for a craft market my church is holding next month. I’m also making bunting flags, little skirts and various other things. There has been a bit of a fabric explosion on and around my sewing desk.

This market has come at a great time, because I was starting to think I had more sewing ideas and passion than need and was thinking of selling some stuff. It is also a great way to de-stash!

If you make, bake etc and live in the Hawkes Bay area or plan to be here in September then you should hold your own stall too! Or at very least turn up to sample our wares!

You could even walk away with one of these guys if you so choose!

I think ‘old vintage doily wings’ is my current fave…

… And these two are lovers… I may have to sell them as a set…

Plenty more to come!

I love them! Doily wings is my favourite. In terms of pricing, go with your gut feeling - you put time and effort into hand making each one and I think $15 is great.

My mother in law's church is having a car boot sale too, on 25th August. I am going to sell some of my stuff - I am amazed at how much I actually have. Lots of bits and pieces that the girls never wore, things I made for etsy, etc. Exactly my feelings, great for a destash and clear out. A bit of extra $$ never hurts either ;)

Can't wait to hear how it goes!
