new hat for a colourful friend
I love the Country Living magazine. It is always so positive and uplifting. This year I went to the Fair in London with my friend, for the first time. We took supplies of food and drinks and wore flat shoes and layers (but actually I wasn't a success in the Girl Guides). Anyway, we had a wonderful time.
One day soon I will make my own wall hanging, while I read up on how (seriously), I bought one with birds on it as a Christmas hanging from Susie Watson!
But here is my favourite find of the whole Fair. Linda Miller Embroideries. I adored all of her work, and this one especially. I bought a postcard and can only dream of owning an actual embroidery. So jolly and sweet.
I loved the Poppy Treffry stand too and Kate bought me her book 'free and easy stitch style' for Christmas.
Then I really pushed the boat out with the purchase of this shawl from Pingush. I couldn't resist the softness of alpaca wool.
Non bobbling. Something to last a lifetime.
(well actually I have decided it could be a gift to moi from my husband for Christmas, I have yet to tell him).
The Fair was lovely and I will definitely go again in the Spring. Just wish they had seating because we shopped till we dropped but dropping meant to a corner on the floor somewhere out of the way when we would have preferred a seat.
