Setting up at Deloraine Craft Fair

After a very wet start to the day, and rain all the way to Deloraine, 4 hours drive, the sun came out late in the day, hopefully a good omen for tomorrow.

Usually I stop in Campbell Town for a quick lunch when travelling north, but we decided to stop in Ross instead – able to park in front of the little cafe, instead of walking a distance in the rain at Campbell Town.  To cut a long story short, we sat in the car for lunch in front of the Scotch Thistle Inn, which had this magnificent specimen of wisteria, trained to look like a tree –

By the time we reached Deloraine, the rain had eased and the sun came out.  Three hours later and my stall is all set up and waiting for the first visitors early tomorrow morning.  This is what you see when you walk in the door to the pavilion –

I have a large strip light above, and the sun streams in through the clear roof, nice and bright.  This is the view back to the other end of my space –

Looking the other way

Not a good photograph, the camera didn’t like all the bright light, and my little spotlight looks like a torch in the night.

My ladies are now dressed in co-ordinating colours and outfits

You can actually see the tree in the quilt, the light is just right

My Fireworks and Tall Timbers quilts.  The tree is very hard to see in many situations, because of the organza overlay which reflects back any bright light, but here it is just right.

This lovely piece of art cloth will be draped along the front of the table tomorrow.

Hoping to see some of you over the weekend, keep smiling.  🙂
