Firstly, apologies for neglecting my blog of late but it is officially 'mad' time at work so my blog has been relegated to the bottom of my 'to do' list! Today was the first (of many I am sure!) Vintage and Handmade Textiles Day in Chipping Sodbury. This is the brainchild of the lovely Michele and Jayne (http://http//countrycottagechic2.blogspot.com/and http://http//infocowboysandcustard.blogspot.com/) and it was a wonderful day. I went along today as a customer rather than a stallholder which was lovely as I could chat to everyone and make a real day of it. There were some beautiful stalls, some I recognised from the original fair like my partner in crime Liz http://thewasherwoman.blogspot.com/, Donna http://http//www.donnaflower.com/ Hen http://http//henhousehomemade.blogspot.com/ and Viv http://http://hensteethart.blogspot.com/. but there were also an array of stallholders I hadn't met before so it was great to meet other talented ladies, especially the wonderful Woo http://http//www.thedevilmakeswork.co.uk/ who makes the best bunnies you've ever seen. We enjoyed some delicious cakes in the sunshine made by Hen and managed to spot a meeting of the ' Vintage and Handmade Widower Support Group' as well! Needless to say a few 'necessary' purchases were made....but more of that another time. for those of you who couldn't make it I'll leave you with some pics...have a great weekend.
