Craft fair


There was a craft fair type event in town this weekend, so I went and checked it out yesterday and picked up a fair amount of inspiration. I went to two demonstrations, one on sashiko and the other on wool felt applique. I may have collected some new hobbies. There were also lots of lovely quilts to check out, but also a whole section on paper craft which I look at with envy because I have the fine motor skills of a drunk baby elephant. If I try to glue a small bit of anything to a bit of paper I end up with glue everywhere and things stuck to my hands. But nice to look at others work admiringly and be surrounded by crafty people for a part of the day.

The rest of the weekend was spent on chores and gardening. I did manage to create a small potted veggie garden in one corner of my patio as well as doing a bit of weeding and hedge trimming. Still plenty more to do though. It gets so out of hand during summer when it is too hot to do anything other than mowing, so winter is the time for pulling it all back into line.
