I donated some money today to two local Cat Rescue groups today. Since I have missed out on a good amount of shows this year because of being sick (I am well now, timing could have been better), I didn't sell as many cat toys this year like last year. As you know, I make my kitty toys from wool that I get from a local farm and get cat nip from a small business in the next town over. I sell my kitty toys for $2.00 each and for each one I sell, I will give a dollar each to the groups. This year I am giving $28.00 each to Monadnock Kitty Rescue in Jaffery, who are doing renovations on their building. The other is Kitty Angels in MA, who do a lot of work with feral cats, with TNR and adoptions with cats and kittens who find out that it is nice to have a warm home and food all the time. I have 2 ferals and 2 strays and it is rewarding to have them in my life. Little Annie, who took us a year to catch her, loves to snuggle and get a belly rub. It was so wonderful when she did it for the first time! Oh what a feeling!
The Brentwood Library is having their Annual Christmas Craft Fair until right after the Holidays. This is where local crafters bring in their items to sell and 25% of it goes back to the library. 22 Dalton Rd., right off rt. 125 near the fire station. There are several tables full of honey, soaps, knitted items, plants with cute containers and much more. Shop at the normal hours of the library. I have my felted animals, dryer balls, pot holders, hats, both knitted and felted and bags.
I will be at the Town Hall 9-5 this Saturday, Oct.21, 2017 in Newfields NH. I will be selling my needle felted animals, dryer balls, cat toys, pins and ornaments, knitted bags and felted bags. Come and support your local artist in the quaint town and stop off at the General Store! Weather is going to be great!
I will be at the 48th Annual Greenfield Harvest Fair this coming Saturday- Oct. 7th, 9-2 being held at the Meeting House. I will have some new boiled wool hats, new pillows and pot holders made from recycled fabrics. I will have the felted pumpkins and my birds also.
I am sorry to the folks who were looking for me at the Temple Fair and Music on the Main in Henniker the last couple of weeks. As I said in an earlier post, I have been sick this summer and things came ahead again when I was driving to the Temple fair, which was too bad because I have been busy making my Boiled Wool Hats. I do still have that pink bunny that the boy left behind in Temple last year.
The next couple of weeks I will not be doing my shows because of a much needed operation but then I will get back to the shows. The next one I have planned is Oct. 21 in Newfields NH. People are more than welcomed to contact me if you want to dig in my bins for Holiday shopping- your own little shopping trip.
Summer has not been kind to me.... I have been sick but I am on the mend! Hopefully I will make it to these upcoming fairs. On Sept. 9, with the hours 11-4, I will be in Mason NH at the Old Home Day Celebration! This is one of my favorite fairs because of the Great Music, wonderful food and the nice people who live in town.
