Fair Preparations, Alfe's Cause and Wooly Jumpers

At The End Of A Busy Day
It has been a busy day out and about pinning up posters for the fair at St Matthews on 10th December. But first I hope you like these gift tags which I suddenly decided to make this evening. They are 'Happy Families' cards printed in the 30s. I have quite a few of these cards and I am planning to use them as the basis of the posters for the fairs in 2012.
Grey Skies In Northampton
After visiting the villages between Kettering and Northampton my last destination was St Matthews, before returning home. Yesterday had been blessed with a clear blue sky but as you can see it was distinctly overcast today.
What A Difference A Day Makes
This photo was taken a day earlier and shows the south-east aspect and a lovely sunny day, so fingers crossed that we will have a fine day on the 10th.
The Blue Room Burlesque Fairy Tales Show In Aid Of  'Alfe's Cause'
This special event is taking place the day after the fair at St Georges Hall in the evening. Alfe is a young boy from Northampton whose family raise funds for local children's charities. For more information about Alfe use this link http://alfescause.blogspot.com/
It's sure to be a great night.

Please keep checking the blog for news about the fair, we look forward to seeing you all at St Matthews in 8 days time, there is bound to be a 'Christmassy' feel to the fair.

And finally the wooly jumper, as suggested in the title of this post. When in Kettering this morning I popped into the Oxfam store and found a not really vintage but worthy wool knit jumper, I love the muted colours and it fitted me. Do you remember when Marks and Spencers stopped being St Michael?
