Oh what a lovely day we had...

Today we went to Chagford on the moor in Devon is a delightful place and the sun was shining which made it perfect.
There is something 50's and Enid Blyton about the village Hall I love and Sheila Hyson lays it out with little side tables and chairs where one can sit and enjoy refreshments which were excellent may I say !!
It was well attended and a variety of people arrived to dig through the bargain boxes, the October one was busier but we had a good day... bought some sold some and had fun.
Home safe and sound and the prospect of a quiet day tomorrow

Fair Isle Rag Bags

Another string to my bow or whatever the expression is! I am doing 12 inch " Rag Bags " of Fair Isle pieces to go with my bundles , felted blanket squares and quilt bits all of which I will have at Chagford Rag market on Saturday.
I am rather pleased with the colour combinations and look forward to seeing what you clever ladies do with them.
My friend Sara started the useful " felted phone cosies " for mobiles and they work a treat. Patchwork felted bags are another fun project.
Generously filled @ £10 a bag limited supply

It was an impressive Event and all the comments have been really positive well done Sue, Lizzie and your great Team who made everything run like clockwork

One stop heart factory

My God daughter Vicky is getting married to her lovely boy Dave on July 3rd and she is having the lunch at her local French restaurant in Dorchester.
Vicky had admired my hearts and wreathes at Christmas and thought they would make great decorations and " favours " for lady guests to take home.
We had a day yesterday and it took us All day , with a lunch break in the sun ...lucky with the weather!
I sewed all day but we managed to finish each of us with a task ,we did 63 in the end and the girls will sew the tapes and buttons on to finish them off.
