Christmas Craft Fair preparations

Any spare moments are now taken with festive craft preparations. I am having a stall at the Wolds Village in Bainton, E. Yorks, they are having a Christmas Craft weekend on the 3rd & 4th December, I'm only there on the 3rd, 10am - 6pm.

There are a few of us representing East Riding Artists, painters, ceramicists, crafts etc. I'm not sure but I'm guessing our stalls will be set up in the Art Gallery, it's a great place and I can recommend in the tea room their chocolate scones with chocolate chips, served with a chocolatey dip & cream! That's if you like chocolate of course!!

I thought I'd show a few bits n pieces I've been making.

A new range of Harris Tweed butterfly brooches.

Some more ice skate decorations.

Some mini cupcake ring pin cushions.

I'm making these sweetie cones or festive favor bags out of vintage fabric.

I've got lots of half started things which I'm itching to get on with and then I have stock from a festive fair last year which I need to sort out.
So much to do, so little time but it's all worth it on the day!
