Strawberry madness !

I always come back from Cowslip Workshops with something new I have learnt.
I was shown how to make these strawberries by two ladies on the stall opposite us who produce an amazing amount of stuff.
I thought they would set off my cakestands, butterfly cakes were my other thought but I may run out of time!
I know they are a little mad but having caught a nasty cold it was something useful ?? to do in front of the fire.
See you at the Christmas Market St Mary's Hall Bridport on Sat 28th Nov.

Christmas At Cowslip Workshops

Despite the howling wind and rain on Thursday night and the stress of worrying about the marquee Jo and Stephen were out there cheerful and welcoming when the crowds arrived to enjoy the Christmas Market and quilt exhibition at Cowslip Workshops in Cornwall last weekend
Friday was bright and breezy and it was a very enthusiastic crowd who enjoyed their day , shopping and viewing the work of Jo's students. Cowslip boasts a fantastic shop for all things you could need for quilting and craft and a cafe with the most delicious home cooked food which was packed out with happy customers who know Andrew and Vicky will have made wondrous goodies.
There was a great variety of stalls with wonderful handcrafted items and a good sprinkling of vintage and brocant .
Saturday and Sunday the weather was wild and wet but it did not dampen the determination of Jo's many followers. There were a few moments of drama but in all the weekend was most successful. We love being there and the Welcome is warm as toast
