Apparently it is a mere 3 months till Christmas which is obviously why my local Co-Op has stocked up with the Xmas chocs.
That is maybe slightly more understandable than them selling mince pies with a sell by date of the end of October (although you can of course eat these at any time of year and you might want to train up for a mince-pie eating fest at the actual festive season – who knows).
Us crafty types can be forgiven for getting in the mood early on (I have yet to participate in a Christmas in July event but I am intrigued) however I have made a start on the ornaments that I will be hopefully be selling at craft fairs this year.
I have quite a lot of stock from last year as I did not do my usual Oakwell Hall fair due to going to China but am hoping to do that this year.
I did manage to make these two baubles but sadly had a major malfunction with the rest of the polystyrene balls that I had in my stash which literally fell apart as I was using them hence only two completed 😦
I promised you photos of Chesterfield Church that I visited recently when I went to stay with Ellie so here they are.
The church is famous for its twisted spire as it is made of wood and has warped over the years but I did not realise that it had the amazing effigies and alter art inside.
A beautiful church and well worth a visit.
I have been to our last event of the season – fab times and have lots more pics of loveliness for you which I will post this weekend.
Thank you for visiting.

I’ve been past the twisted spire, but never quite managed to go inside – it is obviously well worth the effort!
It is – the pictures don’t really do it justice but the altar art is comparable to that in Florence. I was very impressed!
