Despite our frustration with minimum orders at the Spring Fayre on Wednesday, we did have a fun day.  It was interesting seeing what the 'next new thing' would be - I saw a lot of fox merchandise.  Whenever we go to events we always end up getting lost and this time was no exception, we ended up driving through the middle of Birmingham and then my friend's windscreen washer packed up so we had to pull up on the side of the road and throw bottled evian on the windscreen.  This caused much hilarity, as we wondered if the locals thought we were too posh to use normal tap water on the car! My legs still ache after all that walking, but what impressed me was how many women attended in high heels.

On the making front, the storks are proving to be a real hit, my favourite one made this week is Stanley, he is for a little boy who will be two next week.


I am a bit birded out now, to be honest, so it was nice to make something different.  I especially loved using the summery fabric on this bag, makes you think of sunshine and spring on it's way


Have a lovely weekend everyone

  1. You remind me of a business trip up in the Scottish Highlands when it was -12 during the day. I was driving down the A9 and the windscreen washer froze. Every 15 mins or so I had to stop at a lay-by, hack off some frozen snow from somewhere and use that to clean the windscreen. Almost got frostbite!

  3. I used to have an old 'Sprite' and the windscreen wipers would just stop working occasionally. I used to have a bottle of water and a window cleaners wiper blade on hand just in case!

    1. Thank you, I can knit, but it's for pleasure rather than business, as it takes too long! Jx
