Queensday in Sittard

So today my first fair from this year… And I must admit I was afraid I didn’t have enoug new things.. sold a lot last Christmas season and didn’t have time to make loads of new stuff  so far. Last Saturday and Sunday I managed to nuno felt 4 scarfs in one “rolling- go” and they came out great I think… hoping I would sell them today  but.. I still have them :)

Back to the fair again. When my daughter and me arrived there we found out we were placed besides this beautyfull “Basiliek “church. The local marching and “schutterij” stopped in front of our  table to bring a serenade to all the people whom were decoreted with a medal of Honor by the Queen the day before.  We were so to say first rang audience :)

J. was joining me as she wanted to sell her selfsewn necklaces…. eager to sell :) she also made text boards in Dutch AND in English!!  ”You never know Daddy!! We also need English for the non Dutch people”…… oh and the word for “ketting” is  I know , I know!! wait wait… .. Necklace!! ”

 She finally sold 3 necklaces , one to my husband ;-) .

She also took a picture of me at the end of the day with me felting a flower

Leuk zeg! Wij hebben de vrije markt a.s. zaterdag hier in Nairobi. Ik heb je net via Ulla (German Dolls) gevonden. Ik zie er naar uit om je te volgen: creatief van thuis (in N. Limburg). . .

I am so glad all worked out well, from a sunny weather to sales for your daughter. What a clever cookie she is to write info in English too.

Kim, your booth looks great! What a wonderful daughter you have to pitch in and be such a big help. If she’s ever unavailable, just give me a call…I can speak English;-)))

Keep up the beautiful work.
