Another Suitcase in Another Hall

OK, I'm no Madonna, but I've been whizzing round halls for the last few weekends, with cases and boxes full of textiles and cards, prints and pincushions, and generally failing to record the facts with my camera..

The Art & Design Fair was a well-run event with lots of lovely quality handmade items for sale. Several of us were demonstrating our skills and I enjoyed talking to people about spinning, not to mention selling them my yarns...

Yesterday was a bit of a change as I baked all morning and sold my wares at our local village hall in the afternoon. It was a great wee gathering of very local craftsmen and women, and I came home with quite a few presents bought (mainly for me...)

Today I was in Lauder at a Fair in aid of The Lavender Touch, a very worthwhile local charity providing complimentary treatments for cancer patients in the Borders.

Tomorrow I am teaching Su how to spin, then there's some more making to be done before my Festive Fling here at Tart HQ on 9/10/11 December.

Do you like the Tart's new pattern to accompany a skein of handspun? Her personal designer has whizzed up a lovely easy pattern to make this cowl with a twist!

Love that cowl - great!

Like you, I've been doing the jolly festive craft round. Well, OK, not like you - only one this time, but I know how wearing it can be to keep on packing / unpacking / setting up - but also how much fun it is meeting people and talking about what we do. Have fun!
