I know it has been a while since my last post, but I have been busy, busy, busy preparing my stock for the AWBS Christmas Craft and Gift Fair this Friday, 7th November, 10am – 4pm, at the Ascot Racecourse Pavilion.
You are able to download a two for one coupon on the website too.
This is a fair organised by AWBS (American Women of Berkshire and Surrey). I have had the pleasure of being a visitor in the past and have always walked away with some stunning gifts, some for myself, and some for others.
All proceeds to benefit local charities.
Have a look at the vendor list, they are not all seasonal, there will be plenty for every body.
I will have my stall in HALL 2, stall number 75, please come and visit!
Here is a little preview of what I have on offer.
Look forward to seeing you there
After a few weeks of happy crafting and an ill family the sun is still shining! I love to wake in the morning and to feel and see the sun shine down on me. It awakens the sunnier side of my soul.
It has been so lovely to have my niece visiting, a great excuse to go on a few day trips, Brighton being one of them. The sun was shining and fish and chips was enjoyed on the pebbly beach while observing the screams of laughter as well as terror from the nearby Brighton Pier.
A little handy information I stumbled upon. There is a website called ParkatmyHouse You log on find a “driveway” in the town you are visiting, pay via paypal and park for a fraction of the price charged by commercial car parks. I was rather pleased with this and will definitely be using them again.
I have been doing a little knitting and sewing too. Finally my cape is complete, a lovely seaweed and silk wool from Artisan Yarns
and I have put my hand to some sewing, totally inspired by the Great British Sewing Bee
…….which reminds me to remind you of the C&H competition which is running at the moment. All Entries need to be in by May 3rd. It will be great fun to enter, I’m working on a blouse as I type (well not literally) and will be entering it.
The other exciting news is that I have finally opened my Etsy Shop, there are a few items and hopefully there will be many more real soon. Please have a look and let me know what you think?
One of the highlights of my holiday has been a 2 day ceramic workshop where I could throw pots and bowls to my hearts content. The only promise I had to make was that they will all nest into each other as we have run out of space for all my fabulous ceramic creations. I cannot wait to have them bisque fired and then glazed. Oh, but how will I glaze them? Which colour should I choose? Should I decorate and then glaze? I better decide soon.
Until then we will enjoy Easter with all its trimmings as I hope you will too.
My craft ladies are back next week, ready for a new term of colourful and creative master pieces.
Have a lovely Easter
Love E xxx
