Has anyone else heard of Chaffy? Little One and all her friends have a bit of a craze on him. He seems to be in books that are a bit like Where's Wally. You have to search for the Chaffies in very busy pictures.
Yesterday she announced that she was going to hold a Find Chaffy competition amongst her friends. She spent the afternoon cutting and pasting on the computer (and using up all the ink!), making the competition sheets. She then asked if I could make the prize Chaffy for the winner.
So after my two craft fairs (one went really well, and the other not so much) I felt I needed a break from Christmas knits. The week also involved Big One slipping at school and breaking his wrist (5 and half hours spent in A&E), and the death of Noel our pet lizard, so it has not been great.
But I have spent a pleasant afternoon designing and knitting a Chaffy. (He is the prize, but now she tells me I need to make another one for her to keep!) But I have realized that what I really enjoy is designing knits, and craft fairs will probably just be something I dabble at from time to time. I have one more in a fortnight, but am going to try not to stress about it.
