I’ve already attended a couple of craft fairs this month, one at St Barts School, Newbury and the other at The Watermill Theatre, Bagnor. It was lovely to catch up with some old faces and also meet some new stallholders and swap a few ideas. I’ve been busy stocking up on some favourite items such as sock monkeys, bunnies, cats, owls and monsters, Door-Mice, Amigurumi HooterNinnies (aka hedgehogs) and other cute crocheted creatures plus quite a few new items such as sock pixies, fabric baskets, coin purses, makeup bags and tree decorations. Here are a few of my OddSox stall pics:
I’ve been out this weekend for a sock buying top-up to replenish stock ready for my next fair on 3rd and 4th December at Yew Tree Garden Centre, Ball Hill, Newbury. I’ll be doing a separate post soon with the details of times and what’s going to be on offer.
If you’re in the area do pop along – you could get your Christmas tree at the same time as a few gifts
It’s been a busy and rather harrowing day for the Gardeners. Things started well, Alan spent a good half an hour trying to coax Snowy the GardenDog down from the Passionflower, whilst Bob kept himself busy feeding the Recycled Pond Birds.
Once Snowy had been rescued, Alan joined Percy Flowerpot who had found the neighbouring garden’s cat Cashmere. Percy’s a little distrustful of animals but Alan got stuck right in giving her a tummy rub!
OH DEAR! Not such a good idea… Poor old Percy takes the brunt. And he’s not the only one – looks like Bob’s got caught on his way to water the beans by Tabby Tog…
Better make a run for it chaps! Quick Percy – she obviously likes the taste of you!
Hurry up Bob, jump in the bean bag, Percy needs to get on board too!
Looks like that was a narrow escape…
Safe at last!
