Hoffest kit fun

Hoffest is like a German harvest festival, or at least I think that it is. We came across a local hoffest when we were in Germany and popped along. All the farms in a row had come together to put the hoffest on. There was a live band and everyone was sat around big tables chatting, eating, drinking and listening to the music. There were activities for the children like pumpkin painting and it was a lovely relaxed evening. The whole thing was very homely with the harvest products all around so I wanted to recreate that feeling by creating a patchwork quilt feel. To do this I cut the papers in to 3x3 squares which I stictched together using embroidery thread. Lots of stickers and some journalling add interest to the LO and photos and I hope that it captured the whole atmosphere.

Materials added to the kit:
October afternoon Cherry Hill labels and stickers
Adorn it mini alphas
Kaiser crafts rub on dates and numbers
