Crafting for the fair

I know, it's been a while since my last update, but I've just not had the mental energy to pull together a post. But Victoria Baths have sent out the flyers for their craft fair, and they are so cute I just have to share them:

Their iconic stained glass fairy has gone all crafty for the occasion, and I just love how the yarn on the back of the flyer meets up with the strand on the front. A little detail that shows the care and attention they put into their work.

The open day is £2.50 (£3.00 Gift Aid) for adults, or free for the under 16s or Friends of Victoria Baths. You'll be able to wander around the building or take a guided tour (the one we took was full of fascinating social history). Bring your camera and/or sketchbook, because the building is very photogenic, even though (or perhaps because) it isn't completely restored yet.

As for me, I'm focussing my care and attention on making the ornaments I'll be selling at the fair. My craft table has been like this for a month:

It's a challenge for me to repeat the same process again and again, but the mini-wreaths especially are making me think "cute!" every time I finish one. I know I've promised tutorials before and not delivered, but I'm almost done with writing out the instructions for these and I hope to get some photos this week. I'll set myself a mini-challenge to get a tutorial posted by end of next weekend, so any readers who share my enthusiasm for the mini-wreaths can have a go at making their own (as I know you can't all come to the craft fair on November 4th, though of course you do want to).
