So many wonderful exhibitors and a wonderful day out for vintage goodies.

I hope that some of you will be able to attend some of these lovely vintage fairs.  I will be going to most of them...
Today I am going to be hopefully taking some photos if the sun comes out other wise the light is so
very bad.
I have a little pile of delicious hand stitching to be done and I have today and tomorrow that I do not have to go anywhere so I can really get down to some work.

It may be sunny on Wednesday just looking at the forecast so that might be the day of photos and today with the little lamps on and the fire lit I think I might just keep stitching and get some serious work done.

The noise in the garden at the disgruntled bird neighbours is going on and I am going to have to have a little word I think.  I have put several little piles of food on the grass as well as on the bird tables and of course all of the 6 bird feeders are full up so there is no need to get so vocal out there ... they do make me laugh.

Looking at all these wonderful dates I realise this weekend is the first of them and I will be at The Re Claimed Home Fair this Saturday bright and early.

Well that is it for today and I hope you all have a wonderful day, I will be back here on Thursday so all that is left for me to say is Happy Stitching! XX


  1. Sounds fun in your garden - perhaps its choir practice.......

    1. Morning Julie . I wish it were choir practice! Later in they day there is singing but it’s a real telling off! Lol
      Raining here too and dark .. no photo taking today.
      Hope you stay dry and have a good day ..

  2. Oh Sarah, so many wonderful fairs coming up. I wish I was nearer. We are going to the VB in Frome and am looking forward to that. VB is probably my favourite so far. It's a lovely size and this will be our first visit to Frome, so excited about that too. I'm going to a vintage fair at Culross, near Perth this weekend. Not been to it before but will let you know what it was like. It's been mud central here lately - mucking out hens was no joy at all today! However, made a cushion and have progressed with some sewing projects so not a bad day.

    1. Hello Mo

      Oh yes please let me know about the fair in your gorgeous part of the country. If ever you come across any more give me some details and I will put them on here.
      I will see you in Frome! That is where we are hoping to move to actually, well just outside anyway. I await your comments on it, I love it.
      See you and Jimmy there ... my turn to buy the coffee ..
      I am glad you are getting there with your projects, how is Etsy going ?
      I hope for warmer weather for you and your darling hens ... its been a long, cold and soggy Winter.

    2. Will do Sarah. Looking forward to that coffee in Frome. Xxx
