Craft Fair – Sun 18th Nov – St Bartholomew’s School, Newbury, Berkshire

This week I’m busily sewing up a box full of sock monsters and monkeys to replace the ones that were sold at last weekend’s craft fair. This little lot will be coming with me on Sunday 18th November to the next fair at St Bartholomew’s School, Newbury.

My OddSox stall will be placed next to award winning Mrs Chutney – I bought three pots of delicious items from her stall a couple of weeks ago and can thoroughly recommend her produce – top fave is the Chillililli – fresh, crunchy, fragrant and with a good spicy kick. And the best thing is, she has little taster bowls out so you can sample before buying!

I hope you can come along – we’ll look forward to seeing you 🙂 Here are the venue details…

Cat Swap

I’ve just finished taking part in a really fun Cat Swap that was organised by Chrissy from ‘I Love Spoilt Pig’.

Our swap had to include a minimum of one handmade themed item for our swap partner or their cat! and also something for them to use in a crafty way (didn’t have to be cat related).

Here’s the lovely batch of pressies I received from Vicki – she has 3 cats and a puppy and produces some cool artwork that you can see on her DeviantART site. She sent me a fabulous cat print and a stack of wooden buttons and Tog (my tabby cat) has a new Kitty friend – Patch…

Cashmere (the cat from next door) whispers ‘come & live with me not Tog’

And these are the things I sent to Vicki – A sock cat called Kooky, a DIY Sock Monster kit and a squeaky sock mouse for her kits to play with.

Great fun – thanks for all the organising you did Chrissy!
