Christmas Craft Fair

I've agreed to do a stall at a Christmas Craft Fair in November. So I'm busily making Yule decorations that could be sold. Here are a few of the things I've been making to go on my little stall.

I've created 12 mini wreaths so far. I think the wreaths could do with some ribbon to hide the glue but I'm happy with the results so far.

I'm still deciding what to charge for the items, I'm sure I'll come up with a good price.

Elderberry and Apple Jelly

There was an elder in the back garden of the cottage we're living in. It takes up most of the garden and we agreed with our Landlord (i.e Daddy) that it should be removed. Before my hubby began cutting it back he's collected the elderberries for me. He's also brought some home from a garden he's tidying up for a neighbour. So with this in mind I've been given some apples from my parents and I've made Elderberry and Apple Jelly. Here's me in the process

And here's the result.

I'm gradually building up quite a stock of preserves so will be giving some of these jars away as gifts.
