Pigs galore!!!!

As I've mentioned before (I think!) I've been invited to participate in a medieval fair in the town next month.  

I've never been to one of these things before to demonstrate and certainly never to sell things.  The lady who contacted me said I could sell things and that they'd like a 10% contribution on sales to give to a charity.  Not sure which charity but I hope to find out in due course.  

This was the reason for designing the earrings (Winsome ones), the button flower AND a.n.other which I'll tell you about in a few days time.

The patterns for the button, earrings and mystery will soon be ready to put on the web page.  I work on drawings etc during the daytime but life here has been hectic just lately so I've not quite finished!
Anyway, I wanted a break from making the aforementioned and decided to make pigs!!!  These aren't the flying ones - just walking ones!!!!

  3. I like them! I think the pattern must be from the same time frame as the elephant one I used a couple of months ago.

  4. Your pigs are so cute! Years ago my mom kept a pig in her kitchen to remind her that she had a Problem with Instant Gratification! It was supposed to keep her out of the refrigerator! I sure hope these pigs don't keep anyone from buying tatting thread!

  6. The Faire isn't til next month? Acckkk! My coworker/friend & his wife are winging their way to the UK today & will be visiting your town. I told them to look for you at the event. LOL! Well, if you see a tall balding white haired very inquisitive gentleman and his very nice wife wandering around this coming week, it's probably them. His name is Ed and he knows what tatting is!
