Easter Fair Sneak Peek

Popped up to the Cottage for a little peek at the Goodies that will be offered for sale on Saturday, gosh our Cottage grounds look smart. 
 The amazing Gals and Guys who volunteer for this work, laying pavers, creating garden beds, including the sweetest little garden featuring a bird bath, obviously courtesy of the Potters group. and all the other hard work that goes into keeping gardens looking in tip top shape, these folk deserve a round of applause.

So, into the Cottage to our Patchwork Groups area, just in time to catch the gals hard at work...umm..packing up...really?
Yep - all done - beautifully, just look at the wonderful array of goodies all laid out for your perusal on Saturday.

The Juniors section, quilts, knee quilts, baby quilts, wall hangings, and stuffed toys, including a couple of 'monster' pillows.
Can't resist, here's a closer peek at those monsters along with some bags, table runners, a lovely little smock with bloomers and some more stuffed toys, along with a cute 'tooth fairy' pillow.

Very Japanese, the screen effect, the central panel, a lovely quilt.

More fantastic quilts.

Who doesn't love tractors?

What a choice of kennels Spot and his pals have to choose from.

A Teddy medallion next to an intricatly pieced 'stars and windmills' quilt with loads of other goodies spread along the table.

A closer peek at some cushions, and little clutches.
Really cute and useful half aprons, kiddies aprons, gardening gloves, a pastel strip pieced quilt and Sue's doggie banner.
Blue colour play quilt, cute wall hangings.

More of a Japanese flavour with Gisha girls and kimono's, along with some really bright table runners.
Quilts of a geometric design
 and lastly, Heather was just making sure all was ready to roll at 8a.m Saturday, with a couple of lovely bright quilts behind her.

and so, a small peek at some of the other groups set ups,

Karel from Fiber Arts was working hard at getting their lovely goodies displayed beautifully.  
Have really got to admire the talent of these lassies, the amazing creations, from the ever so useful hats, berets,scarves, capes and shawls.
onto knee rugs (Wow!! how about that 'Granny Square' revival) memories are that Granny Square blankets were made from scraps and leftover balls of wool, the modern crocheter is all about design and colour play!

and of course, the whimsical, who could go past a little chickie in his own knitted egg/bed and the delicious 'guaranteed no calories' caramel tarts, cupcakes and other delicacies.

Next stop was with the Machine Embroiders Group's area.
Took a little license, the lasses from Machine Embroidery were not around but, just wanted to give you a peek at the fab work these gals have produced for the Fair.
First up this stunner.

then there are baby bibs, baskets, toys...
hand towels, and so much more including some stunning banners and quilts.

Pam from the Needlework Group was just scooting out the door but pointed out some special pieces from her group, really, so many, so beautifully worked, so, so delicate..
Such as these feminine nighties, really, the stuff dreams are made of.
And just look at this beautiful smocking, not to mention all the other beautifully worked articles.
Need a card for someone you love to bits?   yep, there they are, just waiting.
along with so many other lovely creations.

Barbara and Pat were caught re-arranging the last of the goodies from the China Painters.
This lovely plate was an eye catcher.

along with this beauty and its cousins - such a sweet figurine and the tripple tile wall hanging
Pat 'fessed up, these nursery rhyme mugs are some of her work.
 and the of course others have worked on  other items such as the tinsy slippers, the egg cups and an array of plates.

The remaining groups will be setting up tomorrow, I guess you will have to wait and see what they have for you!!

 See You At The Fair
