Bernadette, people are searching for the love that we possess...

  
Thanks so much for all the lovely comments left over the last few posts.
 Just a short little post today.
It's is The Original vintageandhandmade Fair, this coming Saturday 9th April at Chipping Sodbury, Gloucs.
I will, as usual, have a stand in the main Hall.
I have been very busy preparing for the Fair...

 
Lots of handmade pieces...

 and items like this crisp,  unused, hand stitched patchwork quilt.
 and this very old French Crazy Patchwork Quilt are all coming along too.
Hope to see you there!

Your work is so beautiful. I am sure the fair will be a great success. Good luck with it and I hope the fibromyalgia doesn't play up too much. Horrible condition.

I wish I could be there--alas, live too far away. That little purse with the embroidered pansies is spectacular! Absolutely stunning. I'm going to check your etsy site to see if you have one like it.
