ALL KINDS OF EVERYTHING
REMIND ME OF YOU!
Sorry, but the raison d'etre of WOYWW, that of showing your desk, has fallen by the wayside this week. My work area has been dismantled and shoved unceremoniously in another room as we fill cracks, sand woodwork, wash down walls with sugar soap and prepare to redecorate! And yes, I AM doing my fair share of this, even though I hate prepping the room prior to painting!!
So instead, for your delectation, here are some pics taken on my phone at the craft fair..
Recognise some of the items?? I did really well - the big sellers were the shopping bags, six went and everything in that beigey doggy fabric as well. Some bunting, carrier bag holders and aprons went as well, so I was pleased. But best of all was being approached by a very smart lady asking if I'd be interested in taking stalls at some country fair events she runs on private country estates!! I was so chuffed :) I don't actually know if I can do any of them until I receive the booking forms and dates as my diary is already booked up with band commitments and craft fairs....but I'm thrilled that she thought my stuff was good enough!
My friend Jenny dipped her toes into the craft fair water for the first time. Here's her stall
She handknits everything from mug hugs to cupcake pincushions to fingerless gloves. The chickens at the back are all handmade from felt that Jenny produced. Their expressions are priceless!
Slightly bonkers, like most chickens are!! She sold a couple of them as well as a good number of other items, so we were both pleased. Start planning for the next one now, 2nd March I think..
It was blooming freezing last week into Saturday. DH and I are still trying to get out every day and we enjoyed the briskness of the walks, even though our breath was taken away when we turned into the wind....Brrrrrrrrrr!
Not huge amounts of snow but enough to make it pretty - and very slippery when it froze later on...
My tree was looking handsome..
A detail of the moss and lichen on his branches..
There must be a few insects still lurking there as the long tailed tits have been having a field day seeking out all the nooks and crannies.
The sparrows, however, have been entertaining us in other ways...
We can see these from our living room. The squabbling that goes on is unbelievable - it's worse than any daytime soap opera!! But they're fun to watch :)
Hope you all have a wonderful week - I shall probably miss posting next week as I'm probably going to be in Wales looking after my mum. Fingers crossed, she goes in for a knee replacement tomorrow, so I'm going back to do what I can.
See you all soon! xx
