Can you guess what it is yet?????

Hello everyone - I've just got back from a Christmas Fair which was pretty successful - yippee!!!  Now, be warned, you'll probably need a cuppa for this post as it's WAY photo-heavy!

So, firstly as I've mentioned before I was very busy leading up to this fair making things - hence the question "can you guess what it is yet?"  Here's a clue:

Have you guessed?  Here it is in all it's glory.............

A fabric Christmas tree...........
and the surprise?????

full of yummy choccies!!!
These are quite large at about 12" high so you can get lots of Ferrrero Rocher in it!!!!  lol

And all the following photos show the goodies I've been making for the Christmas merry-go-round:

A fabric box similar to the Christmas Tree but with a shaped base

A fabric casket (which was filled with Ferrero Rocher today)

Another fabric wine box

Some decorated candles

A fabric After Eight Box - full, of course!!!

Tea light holders and boxes of After 8's

And lastly a couple of photos of my table today - I really, really needed two tables as I couldn't fit all my stuff on one 6 foot table but they were expensive (£25 each) and you need to know you will cover the cost of the table and then make some money for yourself.  Still, I'm doing another one in a couple of weeks time and I've got two tables for that which will be good.

It was lovely seeing Jill and her Mum, Heather, today - they were having a day out and we were the second craft fair they had been to and were heading off for Stourhead..........the best weather to see it in all its glory - hope you both had a great time.

Right better go and see to some dinner preparation.  Hope I haven't bored you silly...............have a wonderful weekend wherever you are and whatever you're doing - just think in four weeks time it will be all over!!!!!

Happy crafting.
