What's Happening in Stonyford: Craft fair season starting up
Well, let's see. There's Tuesday night dinner. This week, it's Chuck's Famous Chili, with corn bread and dessert. We had a really good turnout for the meatloaf last week. We hope to see you keep coming out.
The Sew What!? group was busy last week. This is the beginning of craft fair season. There will be many between now and Christmas. We had eight ladies last week: Some crocheting; Laurie making purses or tote bags out of blue jeans.
I saw a really neat idea on You Tube. I made an entire quilt top in about three hours. So now everyone is going to try one. It was fun. I started with a bunch of 2 .5-inch strips of fabric and just sewed and sewed. There wasn't much thinking to it, just fun. We'll be there next Wednesday at 10 a.m. if you'd like to join us.
The Art Festival is next weekend in Elk Creek, Sept. 29 and 30 from 10 am.-7 p.m. both days.
I called it a craft fair in last week's column. I bring quilts and fabric items and jams and jellies. I guessI'm just used to referring to these country sales as craft fairs. There is no admission fee, so come on out.
Coming up in October is the Harvest Dinner on the 13th and the Cake Walk on the 27th. Coming up in November is the Turkey Shoot, a fundraiser for the Fire Department.
Larry and I have a standing habit of going to The Timberline for dinner on Thursdays. Last Thursday was my birthday.
Many thanks to Laurie for setting up a party. There were many friends who came out to have dinner with us and share a piece of cake. I had to wear a tiara and a button that said "Princess" on it. It was good fun, good food and good company. At least I didn't have to wear a little pointy hat.
Thank you again, to everyone who came out.
