It's starting to feel a lot like christmas...

I have no idea how many days to christmas, what I do know is that the shops are in full flow.

As is tradition when I am off for half term, my mum and I go to Alexanders of Markethill to look at their decoration displays. I took many photos on my phone to share, unfortunately my usually reliable phone has not entirely co-operated. So here is the "best of what I saw", please excuse the odd one that is not super focused.

Thought for the moment

Sometimes in life one needs to reflect, accept and make changes. Being honest with yourself isn't always easy but often necessary. Oscar Pistorius

Black with white or White with black?

Saw this and it made me think madagascar. What colour is a zebra and what's with the funky dots???

Craft fair make over

My lovely OH has been hard at work in his workshop to make me some display props. We have talked about it for ages and he finally squeezed some time out to get his hammer and saw working. The finished product was a made-to-measure shelf and a bag stand for my new printed tote range.

When put together the bits and pieces worked well....... and the craft fair, well not much to say.

The marquee had a frozen roof which defrosted during the day in a series of drops everywhere. There were plenty of people there but I fear they were saving their pennies. While I did ok, craft fairs are hard work these days, everyone's being careful. And so on to the next one....

Spots and stripes and all things nice

I am a major fan of spots and stripes, but when I saw these pretty stars I knew they were a must have. I have found it hard not to put them in every bag I make.

Almost ready for tomorrow's craft fair, all I need to do now is sleep.
