Good Friday ... and also a great vintage event tomorrow!

Easter spells out beauty, the rare beauty of new life.  ~S.D. Gordon

Well it is Easter this weekend so we have four glorious days off.  I am hoping that the weather will be kind to us all and a bit warmer.

I have a blog on Saturday for you all and then all over Easter too.  I am having time out with my husband but will probably do a little stitchery whilst munching on some little chocolate eggs!

We are not sure what we will be doing or where exactly will go but rather see what we fancy on the day.
Today we have some friend for dinner this evening and that is as far as the plans go.  It will be really lovely to have some down time as well.  It has been a very busy few weeks with vintage fairs and trying to catch up  with everything since I felt so poorly.  I have to report I am still holding on to this bloomin cough though and I just can not shake it. When I hit the cold air it is worse so I am hoping for the weather to warm up a little now.   It is officially Spring out there but it really does not feel that way and we are still having open fires as well.

I might well make up some new project baskets this weekend and sort out some of the beautiful fabrics that I have bought lately.  After Easter I will show you some that I bought at Trull textile fair and some lovely bits from the Country living fair as well.  Because it has been a busy vintage fair time I am still catching up showing you all that at well....

Hopefully with some quiet time I am able to catch up on some stitching as well.

Whatever you are all doing over these four days I hope you have a lovely time and enjoy your time with family or friends or just rest.

There is a great fair on at Chipping Sodbury in Glos tomorrow so take a look at the these details.....

Hoping for a fun day out this Easter? Then look no further than the first Original Vintage & Handmade Fair of 2016 which will be an Easter Extravaganza on the 26th March. Now in our 8th year, the V&H is a firmly established favourite on the South West vintage scene. Our fabulous sellers from across the South West & beyond always make a huge effort to bring along their best stock & display their wares on attractively arranged stalls. The V&H has always presented the very best combination of vintage treasures & handmade delights.

Expect to find everything from vintage home wares, toys, haberdashery, fabrics, clothing, books, jewellery accessories & more, plus beautifully handmade hats, decorations & gifts to suit all tastes. In addition, our favourite vintage publication, Pretty Nostalgic, will be there & of course our fabulous tea room will be serving teas, coffees & home baked cakes to raise funds for local good causes.

So, why not join us on Saturday 26th March at the Chipping Sodbury Town Hall, South Gloucestershire, BS37 6AD. We are open from 10am - 3.30pm. Entrance is £1.00 (children free) & there will be special treats for the first 50 visitors of the day.

I might well be going along myself ...

Have a great Easter and as always Happy Stitching and Happy Treasure Hunting if you are yourself going to a vintage fair this weekend.
