Yesterday we went to our first Craft Fair of the year at Little Downham near Ely. The organisers are Funky Fayres and Events Ely. It was a full hall, with an Easter theme, including an Easter egg hunt for the children. The little ones had a wonderful time, one little girl enjoying it so much that having collected a bag of chocolate eggs, she went round and hid them again, purely for the joy of finding them again
We have a completely new set up for this year, with a polka dot tablecloth and our custom made banner. Our buttons are now hanging on the two carousel stands, sorted into large focal ones on one stand, and sets of buttons on the other. We had several pieces made especially for Mother's Day, including necklace and earring sets.
As always, the fellow crafters were friendly and supportive, the food was lovely (I can recommend the jacket potato), also the hot chocolate with marshmallows.
It was a good start to the year. Next fair is in two weeks time on 5th April at Downham Market Town Hall. Hope to see you there!
Happy St David's day! Spring is outside my window today. The daffs are in bud and the sun is shining.
This week's cane has been my favourite so far - a cat cane ! Here's the cane and its slices on the left, and on the right is what was made with it. Today I've been busy making the slices into hair barrettes, buttons, earrings, a necklace and cuff-links. I loved making this cane and will definitely make more in different colours.
