The Countdown Begins

One day to go until Roll Britannia! Eep!

Stayed up until 3:00am this morning making my tablecloth. Very much wish my living room was at least 6 foot bigger in each direction. Suspect tablecloth may be miles to big, but I will artfully drape if that is the case.

Boxes have arrived to put hats in. Also, against all odds and blowing rasperries in the general direction of Royal Mail and its strike, my cute little black and pink jewellery boxes arrived at work this morning. I now wish I hadn't spent yesterday afternoon running round and spending money I don't have to buy more boxes. Bumhats!

Anyway, this evening I will be mostly soldering jump rings onto tiny silver stripey sock charms and trying to finish little hats. And possibly collapsing.

So, my first ever stall happens tomorrow! Even if I'm not quite ready, and even if I don't sell anything, I've learned a whole bunch of stuff in the past couple of months and given it everything I've got. I can say for definite that I couldn't have worked any harder, so all in all I'm pretty happy with what I've achieved, especially given my tendancies to self-doubt.

I'll let you know how it goes. Wish me luck...
