Getting my stall ready – two days to go!

I’ve been busy over the summer getting things made for a charity coffee & craft morning we are holding on Saturday. I have been stocking up my selection of handmade bags, pouches, purses and little bits and pieces like brooches, hair clips and so on. It’s in aid of the NICU (the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit) at the Norfolk & Norwich Hospital where my son Jack spent his first two weeks as a baby. The NICU is staffed by the most wonderful team of people – nurses, doctors and other staff – and they saved Jack’s life. When he was born following an emergency caesarian section, he had to be resuscitated for 7 minutes and then spent the first 3 days of his life in the NICU on a TOBY cooling mat

He is going to be 5 next week and is a bright, clever and energetic little boy. You would never know by looking at him that he had such a traumatic start to life, and we are eternally grateful to the amazing care that he received from the NICU. Last year we held a similar event and it was a lovely day, raising lots of cash for the NICU.

So this year we have been busy again, my mum making lovely jewellery & jams, me my fabric bits and bobs, and we’ll also have other stalls (pre-loved clothes and books, homemade preserves, handmade cards and a tombola stall too). All alongside yummy cakes, bakes and cups of tea and coffee! My kitchen tomorrow should look like the set of Great British Bake Off, with any luck! Although no bin tantrums, I hope!  Now, we just need a bit of sun, and lots of friends to show up with lots of pennies to spend!

Lots of pouches, purses and iPad covers ready for sale.
