16 days to go!

WELL, my news..... I got my grant!! I applied for some financial assistance with Newark and Sherwood District Council as they run a Creative Initiatives Support Programme. I applied in September and got my letter this week telling me that I have been successful and have got the grant I applied for!! I'm soooo pleased! Thanks Paul for your help with my application, your comments were invaluable!

And with only 15 days to go until my first Xmas Market I think I have finally got enough work to sell. I have been hard at work this week and now have a significantly smaller 'to do' list than on Monday! I have made two big pieces of work (see above) today and have inventoried (if there is such a word) the rest of my work and think I finally have enough to fill out my stand. Well, I say 'my stand' I haven't a clue how I am goingto put it together, may have to look on The Switchboards for some ideas.
So I think I can chill out now, in my new pyjamas and not think about all of the things I have to do. Ok, well I do have a few little jobs that need doing but I'm going to think about them tomorrow.

Hey! I'm doing my first Christmas show next weekend too. Good luck!

If you still haven't found a screwdriver to fit your needleplate, you can use a pin or a safety pin to push the screw around and coax it out. It takes a lot longer, but it works in a pinch.
