Craft Fair!

We have an annual craft fair at the hospital where I work.  Every year, I say..."I dunno if I am gonna do it", then when the time rolls around, I bust my butt and stress myself out getting stuff ready, including baked goodies!  Heres a few pictures....just FYI, they give us really small tables, I had purchased two and my stuff was still very crowded! We had large quilts, many baby quilts, potholders, mug rugs, bookmarks, washcloths, homemade doggie biscuits, homemade fire starters, homemade English Toffee, Pumpkin bread from fresh pumpkin, choc chip banana bread, Pineapple Zucchini bread, Fresh pumpkin pies and Derby pies....
My English Toffee..pure good! Sold out!

My famous pumpkin bread from fresh pumpkin...I always sell out of this also..

All in all, it was a great day and since then I have been thats why I have been a litte MIA....It was definately worth it though...till next year!
