the fete came and the fete went

Hi All

Yes it came, it went!! 
 I arrived to a hall full of stands, set up my table, showing all my goodies,introduced myself to the ladies beside me, grabbed a cup of coffee and we waited and we waited, hardly anyone came. my total sales was,wait for it £3.00, but I did do better than the lady next door, she never sold anything.

All we can think, that is was the weather, it was so cold, and it kept people away, also there  was a big craft fair on near the town. Tried to be positive about it, I won 3 times on the raffle and won a bottle of perfume.

Now I can get on with Christmas, have done all my shopping, must admit I did shop on line, it was so much easier for me. The tree is up,the presents are wrapped.

I want to make a cosy toes quilt for my grandson's pushchair, so I am going to  start on that this week

Today is a quiet day,it is a year ago since I lost my mum, it does not seem possible that a year has gone already. We are going to her grave this afternoon, her head stone has finally been done, so its a sad day.
