A little bit of this 'n that

Hello...long time no post. I have been working very hard preparing for the Home Spun Fair in Portscatho, Cornwall on 2nd August. Link at side. Not only am I attending the Fair but we are having a few days in Cornwall too, doing a little sight seeing and generally enjoying beautiful Cornwall.

Huglies, collaged embroideries,

purses,
brooches
all sorts of things handmade.

How many pieces do you make??? Have I got enough???? Too much.??? All of which will be answered next Sunday.

Hope to see lots of my Bloggy friends there. So excited!

A pic of the most perfect gift, given to me by a French Cousin. Kenzo perfume, isn't she just stunning?

I wanted to show you a perfect book too. I found it thanks to printpattern .




A really great book featuring, to name but a few, darlingclementine and mattestephens. Inspirational stuff.


Thank you once again for stopping by. x

Lovely work Viv, can't wait to see it 'for real' next weekend. The You Tube video is hilarious. See you soon. Lesley

PS Mimilove's bluffing, she's way too soft to do anything to the Mog - the book and perfume had better come to me!
