See you next year...

December seems to have passed in a flash.

As I haven't posted in ages, I won't bore you with what we have been up to but I will just leave you with some pictures of our December and Christmas, which was very enjoyable and full of presents, food, drink, games and family.

Who knows what 2012 has in store for us all but I will settle for all my friends and family to have a happy and healthy 2012.

Wishing you a very Happy New Year.

(I had to include this picture of the school Father Christms - he did try very hard but sadly his costume wasn't up to much and he didn't fool the kids! See how much better my 8 year old looks!!)

Phew...another Christmas Market done and dusted!

Well I have just returned from another Christmas Market at the Horsebridge in Whitstable and I pleased to say that it was a really good one. Lots of people through the door from the word go and all wanting to buy, which is always a good thing! I did have a great spot, the first table on the left as you arrived in the hall, which meant people also got a second look on their way out!

I'd decided to sell off my Mermaid dollies really cheap as some of them had been hanging around for a while and I'm happy to say they have all gone to new homes now.

At the Christmas Fair last year, I sold lots and lots of cushions - I did sell a few - the embroidered bird cage cushions both went quickly, but what I sold more of this year were the smaller items - needlcases, coasters, bunting, felt envelopes, lavender hearts and houses. But all the pennies add up and I equaled last years money!

So there will be presents under the tree! As the main reason I do the Christmas Fair is for Christmas present money!!

I had a little helper on my stall for the last couple of hours who was very well behaved and spent her time colouring in a picture and helping bag peoples goods up.

There were lots of lovely stalls - I didn't get many pictures of the other ones, but there was a lovely atmosphere and all the other stalls seemed to be of a really good, high quality and quite a variety - despite there being other fabricy people like me, we all had quite different stock that seemed to complement each other
So I will leave you now, exhausted but happy!
