Bank Holiday Blues

It’s ok, am not going to get the guitar out and sing about my woes! You wouldn’t hear me, so I will type them instead!!

I did have a pretty awful day at the Fete. Much of it was to do with our typical British holiday weather, yes, it rained nearly all day 😦 If it wasn’t for friends and my inlaws popping in to make some purchases, I would have sold next to nothing. Have to say, I was disappointed by some of the other stalls, one next to me was selling tat you find on a general market, I thought this was an artisan/craft fair? Still, I guess the spaces needed filling and there is nothing the organisers can do about the weather or getting people to spend. It was certainly the most organised fair I have been to with plenty of advertising. It was also the most expensive!! But they need that to do all the advertising…..

In light of this latest disappointment, I think I need to give up on these fairs, it really is not worthwhile. Though saying that, there is usually a large Xmas affair at the castle in Bude, Cornwall so maybe just one more?

I will, over time, be placing items in my Etsy shop. I have also set up another Facebook page called Naturally Looped which I shall use to show of all my work made from natural and recycled fibres, so please have a look and give me the thumbs up 😉

Heres a pic of the cushion cover I made using wool from sheep grazing on Dartmoor. The cream is from  The Dartmoor Yarn Company

I am very chuffed with how it turned out and slightly reluctant to sell, but it is available for £55 + p&p

Well, after a scorching hot yesterday, our weather has hit its default button, grey!! Husband has the day off so we will head into Okehampton for brunch, mmm cake on the menu I hope 😉
