this weekend i had a stand at the Clickimin Christmas Craft Fair, a fair which is organised by the Shetland Arts and Crafts Association. It is a well established fair in Shetland, showcasing the many talented artists and craftspeople on the island.

i have spent the last few months slowly building up my stock of Crofthouse Cushions, they are quite time consuming to make and with working four days a week i mostly knit them at nights and weekends. So laying them all out last weekend before i stuffed them was a good feeling. A rainbow of Crofthouses!
