Ludlow MIS and Vintage Escapades!

Mini Fox and Tree Set

Mini Fox and Tree Set

This weekend is going to be busy, with two lovely events at which to start thinking about your Christmas gifts! I know….it seems early, but there’s no harm in picking up a few pieces early, spreading the cost and making sure you have that perfect present! Tomorrow, Saturday the 5th of October, I shall be in Ludlow’s town square for the Made in Shropshire fair, from 9am-5pm. And then Sunday, the 6th, it’s Vintage Escapades at Woore Victory Hall, Woore, Cheshire, from 10am-4pm. Lots of goodies to be had at both and it’s going to be a lovely, warm weekend too, especially on Saturday for the outside event! I hope to see you at one or both!

Made in Shropshire, Saturday 10th March

See you tomorrow, for the Made in Shropshire Fair in the Square, Saturday 10th March in Shrewsbury town centre. Mother’s Day gifts abound! I’ve just made some cards too, that I just love! You’ll also find my new Easter Lavender Bunnies…twitchy twitch!

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!
