Back in the fold of doing Craft fairs

It's been quite sometime since l done a craft fair, in fact well before l started Chemo last year, doesn't time fly when your having fun!!
Anyway, l was asked if l would like to do a fair locally to where l live and l jumped at the chance but l only had 2 weeks to prepare for it. Oh hum l don't do things by half do l LOL
I set about getting all most bits and bobs sorted in ready for the fair, l sorted out some bears that l had, re-named them done fresh labels, l made sure that the monsters looked good enough to sell, l mean l made sure all the eyes were equal and not squ-wiffy:) and then came the sock monkey's, l made 33 sock monkey's in two weeks, l go to the stage where l was eating, sleeping and breathing sock monkeys but l love all this build up to a fair, l really do.
The photo below is the only one l took of the things that l made to sell, l meant to take some of the fair it self but l was so busy l didn't have time!
To begin with the fair started of slow, really slow then by lunchtime all hell broke lose and my feet didn't touch the ground LOL
All in all after taking the money for the stall out of my takings l made over £100, l couldn't believe it l was so chuffed l still cant believe it.
In the last few days l have had 4 people ask me if l can do more fairs and I'm due to do a larger one at Luton Hoo on 13th October, not long to go, l went out yesterday and bought 30 pairs of socks! l need to get my finger out and start sewing LoL
Toodles for now

l'm now Cancer free!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Well its been a funny old time since l last wrote,
Aston's been bouncing off the walls, wishing the school holidays were over.
It seems like ages since we were on holidays, feels like a distance memory!
Then we come to the round of hospital visits, tests and MRI scans in all sorts of wired and wonderful places, believe me you really dont want to know what they do to you! Then going back for all the results, feeling so stressed to the point where you dont know what to do with yourself :)
l've been told that l am now Cancer free after 2 1/2 years of one of the biggest fights of my life, it feels kinda strange to be honest, not a month has gone by where l didnt have an appointment for some thing or another to do with hospitals and now no hospital appointments, well not for the next three months anyway! l still have to go back every three months for all the lovely tests that they put you through and then go back for the results but that seems like nothing compared to what l've been through.
l know my fight continues in many ways but at last l can finaly see there is a little bit of light at the end of a very long dark tunnel.

Toodles for now xx
