Where was I?

It's only been a short break really, but I feel as if I've not been here for an age. Life has become so hectic of late that I've been left at the end of each day realising I never had time to reach for my camera in that small moment when the sun actually did shine.

On the run up to christmas now and I have a fair every fortnight. This is something I love and hate each year. I always want to be making presents for my family, but need to make more for my stall as it never ever looks enough in my mind.

This weekend I'll be at The Costumes & Textile Associations 2nd Vintage Fair in Blackfriars Hall in Norwich (10-4pm). So if any of you are near by pop along and say hello. It promises to be a great fair. I'll catch up with some friends who are also selling on the day and I plan to try and knit the other wristwarmer for Eldest Bun in between. Bet it doesn't happen, but I like planning the impossible.

The other news I have. Well as I've never been in the press or a magazine before I am very excited at this feature in Sew Hip. I'm so thrilled at how lovely our poster looks in print too. Little Bun took it in to show and tell yesterday. I doubt the other kids were as excited.

Teena and I have also posed for two different photographers now in various smiley scenes. We have features appearing in two local papers and the county magazine to promote Pick 'n' Mix. Even Alfie Blue got in on a few of the shots, but looked so mad and jumpy I doubt they'll use those.

Right o then - back to the grindstone. Stock needs labelling, float needs getting and then off to visit my dad who has just come out of hospital.


  1. i was really excited for you too when I read the feature! I was thinking your little robin on the pix and mix poster would make great felt or vintage fabrics christmas decorations? he would look lovely on any tree! fliss xx

  2. 'Oh' I wish I loved closer!

    Everything seems to be coming along really quickly now.

    Have a lovely weekend,

Thanks for stopping by and leaving me a comment. I read all of them and really appreciate you taking the time to say hello.
I always try to get back and reply, but sometimes this may take a bit longer as pets and children always seem to need attention around here.
