It is only 5 sleeps until the fabulous Cotswold's Fair and I am so looking forward to it, one of my favourites on the vintage calender and wonderful to meet up with lots of our lovely friends who are like minded. The Cotswold's is stunning and where the fair is held is so pretty. The Broadway is the town where we stay and go out for the evening ... also really beautiful. In addition our friend Ali has her shop there Betty and Violet and she will also be attending the fair. She and her husband are one of the couples that we go out with later that night.
Sorry about last week and me not putting my blog onto the Homespun face book page it was a rush
day with going to mum and other bits happened. Anyway I put a little something on Friday about a vintage fabric sale so I will let you know when this week it will be happening ...
My Mum was very sleepy last week and she she kept dozing on and off until the lunch was served. She loves her lunch, or more to the point she adores her deserts ...
When we were talking to the manager of her care home she said that Mum had woken up that morning and walked down to her office. She sat in with her and had a coffee and was telling her she
was tired as she had been out last night with myself and my sister and we had been skating together and we had so much fun. It was so lovely to hear that she had the most wonderful dream. I should explain that my Mum was once an Ice Folly and skated very well and taught my sister and I to do the same. So it was a memory of sorts and she was so happy ... she was tired as she thought we had kept her out very late skating! Oh how I wish that had been so.
but I have been told they could be 6 weeks or so as she is so busy at the moment. Debbie made the pattern for my dresses from a drawing of mine and we have tweaked them together over things that I have asked for. The fabrics for the next two went in last Friday and so I am so very pleased they will be started at least in the next few weeks..... I am so pleased with them. So today It is working on a dress for me. I have almost decided what to stitch and so that is my day sorted to a point as I want to wear one of them to the Cotswold's fair on Saturday.
Last Friday we had lots of rain and so I was inside working and it felt so strange, I was pleased for the garden mind and it needed it because it was parched, I water the flowers but it is not enough for the ground to become nice and soft and the grass to be green and lushes ... I am so pleased however that the weather today is back and I can sit in my garden office ( table and chairs outside with large umbrella ) once more, I am not ready for Autumn and Winter just yet although sadly they are just around the corner.
My basket of sewing is ready for this week of work along with the dresses and I will be happily here for today and tomorrow with no errands to run and so two whole days stretch before me with my slow stitching. I hope that you all have a wonderful day today and as always .....
Happy Stitching! XX
