Betty's Barn Day

In the barn at Morwellham Quay for my last planned fair before Christmas. It was a windy, cold and rainy day to finish the year Betty's Bubble.
There are dates in the diary for 2016 already; an up-to-date list is on the 'Events' page at

Betty's Suitcase

I had a lovely and very successful time at Cowslip Christmas Fair last weekend (more photos on my Facebook page). I felt inspired to come home and play with some different ideas for displaying things. There's a delicate balance between plastic bags to keep things clean and moth-free and the opportunity to really see everything clearly and be able to touch the wool. I've decided to give this a go - lavender inside the case should keep the moths away over the winter! It's a vintage suitcase that I bought earlier this year. I'd been using a larger one to display brooches so it made sense to use the idea again. It'll make setting up and packing away so much quicker, too! 
It's my last fair before Christmas this weekend, at Morwellham Quay - a lovely place for a day out with the added bonus of a craft fair! I've sorted out lots of things for a sale basket - I just love a good rummage so hopefully, other people will, too!
