I'm so glad I travelled up as far as Almondsbury on the Friday afternoon, to stay in the same hotel as Donna and her lovely Mum. We were greeted with a fair amount of blue sky when we set off on our 20-minute journey to Chipping Sodbury, and were all incredibly lucky to be able to unload our cars before the rains came.
Here's lovely Viv, aka Hens Teeth. Her work is superb and I'm hoping to commission her for a special something sometime in 2010.
And here are Jane (Jane and the Happy Crow) and Christine (The Sea Garden) - who were opposite me.
Sadly, no other photos of other people's stands came out well enough to post, and these are the best 2 photos of mine.
Our customers didn't desert us, despite the squally weather during the day, although the conditions were too bad for some. Such a shame, but very sensible not to travel long distances with such wind and rain.
Everyone worked so hard to make the day a success and certainly a jolly day was had by all.
I had a little suitcase of knitting and sewing patterns, together with some 1940s Woman and Woman's Own magazines. This knitting pattern caused quite a stir ... one lady purchased it for a knitting friend. I'd love to see the expression on her face when she opened her gift!
