Home Fair Fast Approaching

With the Hand-Crafted Home Fair fast approaching and a day ahead tomorrow baking to provide people with sustenance, I thought I would just feature a few hand-mades that I have sold in the past.

Below is the Star playmat/blanket, which I reproduced in knitting from a fabric pattern.

This is the Berries Cushion which is made by combining many toning colours, fastened with three vintage buttons and filled with a cotton and feather cushion pad.

Here is Charlie Bear, who didn't get sold, but went to live with my grandson Louis.

And finally a Hand Knitted 3 - Flower Brooch completed, again with vintage buttons and a stripy hand-made one from the 1970's.

I must also report that my chat and 60 second sell on BBC Radio Northampton went really well and if you click the link below, you should still be able to hear it via i-player  at 1 hour, 54 minutes and 26 seconds in approx!  on the Drive Time programme - if I have set it up correctly!!

So wish me luck for Saturday and if you are in the area, or know anyone else who is, do please come along and see what you think - Aldwincle Village Hall, NN14 3EL - from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.


  1. Glad to hear your radio chat went well and I hope the fair has gone well today also.

    1. Hi Jacqui Thank you for your message. It went quite well - morning good, afternoon a bit slow. I'm just about to do a quick post about it.
