Bunting and Daffs........

Hello folks. Sorry I've neglected you all this weekend, I've been really busy. I went to Stockbridge on Saturday with hubby, but was a bit disappointed. Not much there and what was there was very expensive, I mean £70 for one cushion is just ridiculous. Saturday night I went over my friends for a party so had a late night and was up again at 5.30am to go to London to Hugglets. More on that in a minute.
I finished stitching my bunting yesterday and here it is. I'm pretty pleased with it, and want to make more now.

Here's a couple of pics of the daffs my neighbour bought over for me on Friday, they're so pretty, and it really feels like Springs in the air when I see daffs.

Well back to Hugglets, which is the bear fair in Kensington. As you all know my sister in law makes lovely artist bears and we had a stall at the fair. I was amazed at just how busy the fair was, considering we're in a recession, the place was jumping. I forgot to take my camera, but my SIL is going to e-mail me some pics to put on here. I was quite good and didn't buy a bear, but I did get some small pieces of fabric with tiny print on, which is great for patches and stuff.

Also got these lovely buttons for my crafting projects. They are hand made and lovely. I think the ducks are my favourite.

This little collection of mother of pearl vintage buttons cost £2.50, bargain!

and I couldn't resist this little fella. The lady that makes the buttons also makes these.
We got diverted going to London as the A3 was shut aarrrhhh, but managed to get there on time thankfully. We were stuck in loads of traffic on the way home too, so didn't get home until nearly 8pm. By that time I was knackered, so put my PJ's on, watched Larkrise to Candleford and went to bed. I still feel really tired today, but theres so much I want to do.
Thats all for now folks catch you later.

Gorgeous bunting!
You have got some really lovely things, I want it all!!!
I like going too Stockbridge, but £70 pounds for a cushion is taking it a bit too far, I’m sure somebody will buy it, not me though!

Bosham is at Chichester in West Sussex, just look out for me with my new camera… :0)
Love Lou xxx
