WELL MADE craft market

Saturday November 24, 2012 I attended a new craft market in Upper Hutt.

It was worth it because I sold 3 throws and 1 cot quilt and also two bags.

Here is my table

I sold the following quilts

Dr Zues quilt

Rugby Quilt

Kiwiana Quilt

The last one I have only two squares

I have forgotten to take a photo because I finished it of the night  before  the market

That is it.

I am relaxing now for a day or two before starting the next project.

I’ll tell about the next project as soon as I have made some squares to show.
