Crafty Summer Time! Shropshire Handmade Craft and Food

20170707_150449Hello again at last! And apologies for the lack of posts of late. It’s easy to get swept up in life and, online-wise, also be distracted by social media and neglect your actual website! I’m here today to remind you it’s Made in Shropshire in Shrewsbury town square this Saturday 8th July.  It’s my first outing there this year and I’m really looking forward to it! Lots of colourful loveliness to show you! See you there! As usual, 9am-5pm.

Artisan Handmade and Vintage Brocante!

vintage brocanteI’m in the throes of last minute sewing for this exciting event, tomorrow, Saturday the 17th August. At least I will be once I’ve stopped tapping away at my keyboard here, and as long as I keep remembering it’s not the time to start trying to get through Claire de Lune on the piano. It’s the Artisan Handmade and Vintage Brocante at Nantwich Civic Hall, Cheshire.  Lots and lots of fabulous sellers and the Pear of Peas tearoom…Pennie Pengilly’s cakes are the best in the land. From 10.30am-4.30pm. See for more details of who’s going to be there and what exciting things you can expect to see!

Made in Shropshire Ludlow and Vintage Escapades This Weekend

I shall be in Ludlow town square this Saturday, the 1st of June, for Made in Shropshire’s monthly fair…Come and see some lovely locally made crafts and food, from 9am-5pm! Then on Sunday it’s Vintage Escapades at Woore Victory Hall, 10am-4pm. It’s a clothing extravaganza! Come and pick up a new summer dress, so you’re ready when the sun comes out….surely sometime in June….

Here’s what I’ve been making

I’ve had some lovely new fabrics in, so thought I would share some of the things I’ve made with it. I especially like the purple flowery cotton on the wrist cuff and one of the phone pouches; it’s so rich and ever so pretty. Pictured here are cuffs, a pincushion and a couple of my eternally popular phone pouches. All of these and more will be for sale at the next Made in Shropshire Fair in the Square, in Shrewsbury next Saturday the 11th June!

New phone pouches, wrist cuffs and a pretty pincushion!
