Tis the season to be busy....

Another weekend and another craft fair over. I'm getting better at these things! although I was wiped out today as I was so tired. Next weekend I have my final two so God knows how I'll be on that Monday morning. Saturday turned out to be a great day. Lots of stalls, people and atmosphere. Maybe the fact that it was actually in December helped with the Xmas cheer. At the end of the day there were various raffles. Then they actually did a draw of all the stallholders to win a hamper. I never win anything so I was delighted to have been picked out. I was thrilled to receive my hamper which was full to the brim products. HA HA HA, I asked Niamh the organiser if she had by any chance peeked inside my house, because with all the sewing recently there ain't been much cleaning going on.

I keep meaning to take a proper photo of my stall but forget my camera every time. Next week for sure I'll remember. I spent today cutting out lots and lots of felt templates as I've been left with only 10 decorations. I tried to keep track of what I was selling but it got a bit hectic and when I was packing up I couldn't believe how many had sold. Not complaining one bit, but I do have an awful lot of work for this week. I also have some large xmas orders in too so things are going to be pretty busy this week.

My son Jack who helped me out last week was in bed when I was going on Saturday, I had already roped in my Mum-in-law to help out so I didn't need him as such. At around 10 o'clock I get a call from him saying that he was ready to go and was it okay if he hopped a bus over to me. I told him absolutely and there he was 20 minutes later willing and able. I think he secretly enjoys them at this stage. A woman who was selling at another stall asked him if he would mind the stall for her while she went to the shops! She came back later and he had sold more stuff than she had, so he got a nice payment from her for his trouble. He doesn't get paid commission from me, so maybe he has found himself a niche as a lunch time cover seller.

I hope you all have a good week, I might if I get the chance give a mid week update if not have a good one.
