Thanks Lyn, Fishy.  You are both busy! I'll be clearing the greenhouse of tomatoes and cucumbers at the weekend so keen to get something new happening.

Logan - I checked and there was nothing for sale other than raffle tickets at ours. The lady organiser said that people can 'show' crafts and put a contact card by them, but they don't allow selling. She said that they would probably allow it at larger shows though.

Thanks for the good luck wishes! I'll definitely be needing them!

Well done Chrissy! That's brilliant! I hope your cup is taking pride of place! 

Just done Fruit and Veg... Flowers next....I'm not very good at those. Eeeek!

 Oooh Jo47 - what were the dog shows like? At least cakes and veg don't wiggle about while grooming them!
