Impulse buy!

I was mooching through some of my favourite shops on Folksy today, and couldn’t resist buying this stunning “Summer Mobile Phone Sock”, handmade by Tamsyn G.

Peterborough Town & Country Show results

I had a stall at the Peterborough Town & Country show at the weekend, 4th & 5th July. The show was held alongside the river in Embankment, and for its first opening year seemed to attract hundreds of visitors. The hot weather was an added bonus, although it did tip down for about 20 mins […]

Grand Tour of my new Den!

Sywell Craft Fair

Another successful day yesterday at the craft fair at Sywell Aerodrome, Northamptonshire, organised by Pennine Fairs. I love this venue, it attracts so many people and all items for sale are strictly hand made by the exhibitor. I spent ages looking round at all the other stalls, and then had to go round again!

Work in progress

I’ve been getting ready for a craft fair this weekend, at Castle Ashby. I took a few photos of work in progress, although they look completely different when fired. I don’t usually like people to see my work in the making stages, as I’m worried it might put them off, because it can look a […]
