What Day is it?

Do you ever get confused about what day it is?
I seem to all the time at the moment, I've got so used to going to the allotment on a Saturday and because I went on Sunday this week it's knocked my internal schedule out which is why I'm a day late posting.

On Saturday I was at Godalming Independent Market, all my punch art cards were sold which I'm really pleased about and will definitely be making more and trying out some new breeds of dog. Somebody also asked if I made cats too, I hadn't really thought about making cats so I'll be having a little play later this week to see what I can come up with.

I was really pleased with my latest charity shop bargain, you can't really see it here but it's a pot stand and was great for hanging stuff on. I was a bit concerned it might be a bit wobbly, but no it was steady as a rock, it'll make a nice corner feature when at outdoor fairs with my gazebo.

Early Saturday morning I had to collect a large water boiler for Jill because the caterers she had booked for the event let her down at the last minute, but luckily I knew of just the person to help out in a time of crisis, Brendon Cooney MBE the Catering Officer at Surrey Army Cadet Force who I used to work with when I was in the ACF, and a pop up tea room was accomplished with some tasty brownies available from one of the stallholders and Linda serving the teas.

 Also a big thank you to Himself for running backwards and forwards to Surrey ACF kitchens with the Norwegians full of boiling water so that there was enough hot water in the boiler ready for when the stallholders started to arrive.

As a result I had to leave my rotary card stand at home as there wasn't enough room for it in the car, I've been thinking about selling it for a while now and was glad to find that I didn't actually need it or miss it.

If anyone wants to buy it and is happy to come and collect it, as it doesn't collapse down to post, then feel free to contact me it's approx 26" tall and 12" wide and holds three different sized cards.

I'm linking this weeks post to Handmade Monday and Creative Mondays.
Hope you have a great week crafting and I'll see you next week.


  1. Your stall looked lovely Dawn and your charity shop find was brilliant. Thank you for your help before and on the day of GIM - couldn't have done it without you. Have a good week and see you soon.
