Busy Weekend

Managed to pack quite a lot into the weekend. On Saturday we drove up to Clovelly on the north Devon coast. We went to see the lovely artist, Lydia, who owns Candyland Studio Gallery. She creates textiles and wallpaper using her own designs, as well as making prints, cards and badges like this one…


What a handsome chap!

I had to have this gorgeous cushion with magnolias and moths, fab colours


On Sunday, I was selling my wares at the Christmas Fair, Bude Castle. A big thank you to all those lovely people who bought my crochet! The weather was lovely and sunny but really cold so my mitts and hats flew out the door!! It was such a successful day and I had lots of positive comments so really boosted my confidence in my work. Will definitely be there for the next one.

It’s a 45 min drive from Bude back to my house, which gave me just an hour to unload the car, grab some dinner and then it was back in the car to get to Exeter to see The Damned!  You may not know them but they were a punk band from the 70s who then went all goth in the 80’s (I was a bit young for them but my big brother was a fan so it rubbed off!). Well, they were great, even though now in their 60s!

Luckily, I have a quiet week so can catch up on some sleep, am shattered!
