WOYWW & Montgomery Craft Fair

Good morning all!!
Thanks for all your comments last week - I think I managed to visit about 50 of the wonderful WOYWWers during the week. I don't know where the time goes. I must try and get round a few more this week!!
Join in with the desk snooping bunch led by Julia the snoop group organiser - go to her blog and follow Mr Linky.
Just the usual view of my table today, with a few car boot bargains.
In the centre is a little journal book which I am going to cover. Its sitting on top of a new make-up bag which will make a useful little bag to hold all the bits and bobs for a craft activity when I go down to Wipso for Fun day Monday. (Although this week we had fun day Tuesday so that I could enjoy play time with baby L. and little P. They are such poppets!)

On the left is a new hot water bottle that I am about to make a cosy cover for. I am going to do two of them and will probably put them in the Montgomery Craft Fair on 27th Nov in the Town Hall. Wipso has been making some lovely Christmas items so check out Wipso's blog to see what she is up to!

In the bottom of the pic are a few of my card toppers made from a recycled sweater.
The lovely Christmas cards on the top left are by Julia Crossland. She is an illustrator who paints the most beautiful little water colour pics. She is selling her cards and gift tags from her blog.

Well, now I need to get busy sorting and labelling items for the craft fair. I hope all our local blog friends will pop over to Montgomery to see us on the 27th. It should be fun - it sounds as if there will be lots of lovely hand- crafted items on sale.
Have a great week everyone!

Good morning Sis. Those little card toppers look great on your table today. Think we might benefit from the hot water bottles at the craft fair if it doesn't warm up a bit :-)

The little toppers are beautiful and I like the journal you found...great idea to give it a new cover...it is a good size. The water-coloured cards are lovely and I wish I lived near enough to attend your Christmas fair.

Great bargains from the car boot sale. Just love the "C" cards you are making from a recycled sweater - what an ingenious idea. You and your sister are fantastic with the textiles.

ah wish this was my desk, santas and trees are far more appropriate to the time of year than frogs (womww)... sometimes I even get on my own nerves with my contrary ways...

Such clever re-using and upcycling (can you tell I've been watching Kirsty's Homemade Home?!!!). I especially like the jumper toppers, fab idea.

akilli melek said...

hope you have fun at the craft fair. We use hot water bottles a lot here in turkey because the houses are not centrally heated. Please post the finished bottle cover for me to snoop at. I'm late on my hopping this week, but had to come say hello. caroline #13

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

Love these card toppers. I think you got some great bargains. As usual, I'm running late these days. Had to stop by and say hi, though.
