Don't ever try to stuff a handful of pins into a pincushion using one hand as inevitably one of the said pins will be upside down and the pin will stick deep into your finger!Also do not try to be clever and take a picture of the poorly finger for your blog (how sad is that?) the picture will be crap and you will get blood on hubby's camera.
Now onto more cheerful news,my friend Karen and I had a lovely time at the Grand Sale at Sydelle Castle last Friday.There were lots of gorgeous stalls and one stall in particular caught my eye as the lady had lots of Greengate stuff.Then I spied a wooden box with pretty letters on which I recognised from Julia's www.vintageheaven.blogspot.com/It turned out that the lady was Julia's good friend Andrea.It was lovely to meet her and have a little chat!She was selling these sweet little birds and I needed oneI also bought this gorgeous fabric from another stall for only £2!It's a bit of an odd shape but I reckon I can get 2 cushion fronts out of it.
I have meaning to tell you about these for a while now .I bought the memo holder from Alison at vintageamethyst.blogspot.com/ In fact I bought two as they were so lovely!Alison very kindly sent me a free gift as I was her first customer(the lovely cream hook below).Do pop over and see her lovely new website at www.vintageamethyst.co.uk/ She's got some very pretty items!
Tomorrow and for the rest of the bank holiday weekend I will be running my stall at Burford www.cotswoldcountryevents.co.uk/.I will be booting on Sunday, weather permitting.Hope you all have a great bank holiday weekend!
