Brackley Craft Fair - April 2010

This Saturday I was at Brackley Craft Fair, I love doing this fair so I can see some of my friends but this weekend it was rather slow going for me, which means the rest of the weekend I spent contemplating craft fairs.

Here is my stall (I did hide the ikea bags after the photo was taken!)

and my friends Zenia from Handmade By Zenia and Jenny from Jemini Crafts stall (no point in hiding girls!)

Maybe you could leave a comment about what you think about fairs (any), my stall and any suggestions on how we can all make fairs better.

Fairies and Cakes

Yesterday Grace had a fairy tea party, there was 4 little fairies and a little elf (plus a couple of older brothers and sisters playing in the paddock)

We put up the gazebo and decorated it with balloons, pink and purple of course, cupcake paperchains (now in the playroom) and bunting (made from the leftover fabric from my cushions). The fairies came and played on the swings, then did some colouring of paper hats and such lovely colouring it was. We then had our tea; teeny tiny sandwiches, crisps, mini sausages, mini scotch eggs, mini porkpies, and lots of mini cakes!

Pass the parcel was played with a TinkerBell pressie at the end for each fairy and then it was back to the swings!

Think the party was a success!

been really busy

I'm going to start by apologising for not blogging for a while but I have been very busy, making alsorts of bits. Here are a couple of cushions that have made it in to my folksy shop

So Easter has come and gone, the holidays are almost over but I promised Grace a Fairy Tea Party so that is what we will be doing tomorrow so I'll be sure to come back with some photos of all the fairies!

But for now I'm back to sewing as I'm ultra busy at the moment with a craft fair on Saturday at Brackley so come and see me if you are in the area, it would be nice to find out what people would like to see more of on my stall etc and I will have a sale end to my table making space for some new items in the Summer!
