Woke up Saturday morning to a crisp white scene. It was fantastic as I love snow, but only for playing in. Unfortunately I had to drive to Elgin Library to their Christmas craft fair. I was dreading it. I panic and get very tense when driving in snow. I set off to Keith to join the main A96. We live in a rural hamlet which is five miles from anywhere, so the road to Keith can be a bit tricky. And sure enough, it was. I couldn't go any faster than 30 miles an hour, even dropping to 20 in places. I made it to the fair in one piece and had a good day. However, the journey was another tricky one. Had to have a few rums to calm the nerves (medicinal purposes). Sunday was still snowy and we had more snow over night. I took some photos to show you the scenery from our house - it is quite spectacular. Attended another fair today, but wasn't as successful. I don't think anyone wanted to venture out in the cold snowy weather. The roads were not half as bad today, so a huge relief.

My stock is now available at the Caledonian Craft Connections in Nairn, The Highlands. I met with Pat and Marie on Wednesday and discussed my items and they were happy with my creations so are now available in their shop. They have already sold a couple of items - fantastic news. I have also received some positive feedback from them. It's a great shop with a good variety of craft work, including feltwork, wood, jewellery, paintings, stained glass and they now stock wool also. They have a separate area with all their wools and can say they have a good selection. If you are ever in Nairn, do stop by the shop to have a peek.

I attended a soup and sweet and craft fair today at Newmill, Keith. Met up with some fellow friends and craftmakers and had a good natter. It's quite a small crafting community in this area so you get to know everyone fairly quickly. I particularly like the scottie dog handbag, pink daisy bag and the iPod covers - all knitted/felted. I recently bought a glasses case (blogged earlier about that product) and these make great stocking fillers.
They are made by Rhoda MacKenzie and Astrid Bowie - they are quite new to the craft circuit, but their work is very good and also very popular. Now what girl doesn't like handbags??
