Craft Fair

After a quiet morning, I headed off to the Crest Hotel and my monthly Cancer Support Group lunch. We have a guest today, the lady who handles the prostheses and special bras for women who have had breast surgery. We learn some new things, including what is and is not covered by BC Medical, we plan our Christmas lunch and we talk and laugh and appreciate each others company over some delicious food.

After lunch, I head over to the Civic Centre to see what is going on with the crafts. There are good number of tables, but there is quite a bit of duplication. And not one piece of cross stitch do I see! I think I'll have to talk my craft partner into having a table again. Here are some of the tables.

There were a lot of knitting tables.

Some bake tables. This one was the most colourful of all the ones I saw.

Several jewelry tables - mostly necklaces.

Some handmade cards.

Some handmade ornaments that could be personalized.

And the Sons of Norway table where they offered julbuk (a straw goat that stands beside your tree to protect it) and julnisse (Christmas elves).

There were about 65 - 70 tables in all and I spent a very happy couple of hours browsing and oohing/aahing.

Time to get back to the focus of the weekend - stitching - and pick up my needle. Talk to you again on Monday.
