FO Friday: One week tomorrow, the Craft Fair

One week tomorrow, the Craft Fair, I think my projects for sale are almost done. Now to everything else.

Ok did I mention that the Craft Fair committee started off as three people. Well long story short, looks like two are left, but only one organizer. The other is knee-deep in wedding stuff. No problem, friends and family are pulling together. 

We forge on to raise money for Wheelchair access for our churches 1856 Hall. Funny all the years this church has existed, I guess the challenged people like me, have had to climb the steep steps or not go into the hall. Did I point out that the hall has the only washrooms available. Luckily the church itself has level access. It is a truly lovely old building, with beautiful interior, and splendid stainglass.

St George’s Church, Newcastle Ont, Cda

That is our Hall to the right.

I am doing a table myself, so in last few weeks I made 10 untangles, and 11 XL coffee cup sweaters. Most of the items on the table will be the shawls and baby things I have knitted over the last year.


10 Untangles!

Coffee Cup Sweaters

11 XL coffee cup sweaters, one more to do!

I think I am knitting these in my sleep.

I cannot believe I knit all these since June 13, 2012

Now back to organizing signs, bake sales, tables and set-up.

Not sure if I will have time to post next week,

sorry first time I have missed a week since I started posting.

I hope to have good news about our Craft Fair the following week!
