Christmas Joy To All My Blogging Friends!

 Christmas blessings dear friends!  Thank you all for taking the time to visit at what seems to be the busiest time of the year!  I've been baking, cleaning shopping and gift wrapping just like you all have I'm sure!
I am looking forward to tomorrow though.  My parents are coming for Christmas dinner and I also enjoy our Christmas service tomorrow morning to remember the real reason of this season and thank God for sending His Son to be my Savior.
 Here are a few pics of some Christmas decor around the house~ Hope you enjoy!







 And not forgetting the tree!

God bless this Christmas and may you each make room for the Savior and the Light and Life He gives!

Merry Christmas!

The Craft Fair

 Hello folks! I think I've just about recovered from the excitement of the craft fair to settle down and post some pictures of my set up.  Thank you all for your good wishes to me - it really helped bolster my confidence.
My son is peaking out from the stall as it was held at his school.
All in all I was pleased with how things went and how interested several people were in my crafts.
 The table was on the small side so I felt things were somewhat crammed on .
 The cross stitched pillows were popular



 It was a learning curve in many ways and I'm glad I took the opportunity to do it.
 I found that most folk were looking for smaller items and medium priced crafts which is something to keep in mind.
Now that it's behind me, I'm getting my home decorated for the holidays and hope to share some pictures soon.

Thanks so much for all your support and hope to hear from you!
Best wishes

Wish me well..

Whew! it's been a while and I apologise for not being around much.  I've been concentrating on getting ready for the craft show... which is Tomorrow!!!!
As usual, I'm running around like the proverbial headless chicken trying to finish things at the last minute.

Here are just a couple of things I've just finished. The star above is from a Brenda Gervais design in woolfelt applique.

The tree is burlap with cross stitch snowflakes and says Peace.
 
I also wanted to show you some crates that I'm going to use to display things. I'm especially grateful that my Dad put them together for me to save me some money and use up some wood that we had just lying around.

 It's quite a small craft fair so there won't be space for much and I need to sort out just how to place everything so that it doesn't look crowded but that it looks good too.

Can you tell the nerves are starting to act up????!!!!
So please wish me well! I'll try to remember to take pictures.

So next time I hope to post about how well it went.
Thanks for stopping by! 
Best wishes
