I'm the dandy highwayman who you're too scared to mention, I spend my cash on looking flash and grabbing your attention


Hello,
just a reminder
that the wonderful
will be at Chipping Sodbury tomorrow Saturday 1st October.
I will have a stand which is bliss for me, as I am amongst many talented ladies and gentleman
selling beautiful wares  ...
if you are able to visit, make sure you bring lots of pennies, because if you love textiles,
well ... this is textile heaven.
I am spending this gloriously warm and sunny day working on a dummy run of my stall
and I am currently in overwhelmed mode.
It happens every time a do a fair. 
Pricing...ugh...

Ironing, even more ugh...
 but less of the negative.  
Here, I have some lovely printed 'bunting' tape that is coming along with me... 
 1950's ??? Hand embroidered pictures...
can you see the ghostly outline of a strange woman in the picture???   :-)
 glorious patchwork...
 antique wallpaper and scrap album...
 lots of screen printed cards...
Hope to see you there!
Thank you for stopping by. x

Viv I don't believe it - I have that embroidered picture in my dining room and mine has a water mark too ... I found mine at a car boot how strange ... It's one of my favourites . I have started my course and boy is there a ton of work to do ... Don't know how I am going to keep up ... Watch this space....

I like the quilting in the last photograph. Having your own stall must be quite the adventure. I know it's allot of work and preparation! I would love to do one in the future, just have to find the right one :-}
