I'm silly and should have checked the blog of the place that's holding the craft fair. Looks like we didn't make the cut. I'm disappointed, as I think my work is professional enough; but it looks like they wanted stuff that is more edgy and trendy, rather than cute and cuddly. However, I hold firm to my desire to make things they way I want, and not give in to trends. Maybe next time I will have better luck.
What this means is that I will have more time to work on new projects. The fuzzy farm animals are almost done with their testing, so that pattern should be ready soon. I have one new animal I want to start working on right away, and nearly every week someone asks me to add another to my list! Also, I have a special surprise planned for my birthday, so remember to check in next week so you don't miss out!
Edit: I'm a terrible friend. I forgot to link to my friend Allison, who was going to share a table with me at the craft fair. She also has an Etsy shop, where she sells lovely cards and photo prints.

your creations are marvellous. sometimes it`s really scary, what some people produce under the name of "soft-toy", i prefer your cuties.
can´t wait for your new animal
You are so much a wonderful friend! I was just teasing (thus the smiley) about the link. Perhaps we will have more luck with a joint venture in the fall. The summer is always so busy anyway, so maybe it's a sign from the universe that we should go outside and enjoy the weather! :)
So true! In fact, I've already been to the farmer's market, picked up some tomato seedlings and compost, and dug a new garden bed for them. I keep having this nagging feeling like I should be doing something else, then remind myself that I don't have to be knitting 24/7 any more :)
I love your toys - they make me happy [and my little grandaughter:-)]
Aww, but hey, too bad for the craft fair that dont want you! I dont think they know what they'll miss.
I have soon finished your (my) sheep, and I think its great! And I have more projects from your things to make. :)
Sad for you on the fair, but kind of happy for us hehe, new patterns!!
not edgy enough eh? well I like them the way they are - and yea for having some breathing time for the next 6 weeks - and double yea for more patterns.
Are they insane?!! How could you not make the cut!??? There is no accounting for taste sometimes...mare
