Good morning all, I hope you all had a nice holiday weekend.

I am as busy as a one armed paper hanger today!

Our Wednesday morning Craft Group at Church, has decided that May 30th would be a good day for a Craft sale and tea.

This is number 3 of the 5 I'm making for the sale.

Well, another highly successful Craft Sale at St Georges Church, Newcastle, Ontario Canada.

Thanks to all the worker bees and to all the visitors and purchasers. We will have that wheelchair ramp in no time at all! Raised $700.00 + :0)


Our bake table, and even more showed up after this photo


We provided complimentary Coffee, Iced Tea, Juice and a treat.


The Silent Auction was a real success, a great response


We also had a Craft supply table with Odd balls of yarn, knitting needles and some patterns. We also had a donation of Beach towels.


This was only part of the stuff the Craft Group produced to raise funds for a wheel chair ramp into the all.

Having a cuppa and visiting. Then back to work!
