weekend craft

what a lovely weekend i've had, i started (& now finished) some lavender hearts for big G to give to his pre-school teachers when he leaves next week,i'm really pleased with how these turned out - just hope they like them too,today we took a trip over to Winchester, this was my suggestion as i really wanted to go to the Handm@de craft fair at the guild hall, it was great, lot's of lovely stalls, i really wanted to buy more to support all the lovely people trying to make a living out of selling the things they create, but had to limit my purchases to the following,

this cute keyring from 23 beechhill, i really struggled with which one to choose as they were all so lovely,then this gorgeous alpaca yarn had to come home with me too, from nimu yarns
& also a sweet little head band from coco crafts, no photo yet though, as by the time i had gone back to the stall to buy it, she had sold the one i had wanted, so she offered to make & send me another one,

oops also forgot i got a lovely card from paperleaf too!

there was also a lot of other things going on in Winchester as it was the final day of their 'hat fair' - a festival of street entertainment, so luckily there was lots to keep the little ones & hubbs happy too.


  1. A great mini haul from Winchester! If you popped over to TomatoTea and I didn't say anything, really sorry! I'm a bit shy!

    Thank you for entering in my hand dyed yarn giveaway and thank you for your support and buying handmade! :D

  2. The hearts are lovely, I'm sure the teachers will still have them for years to come, such a thoughtful present!

  3. I also enjoy going to fairs. It seems that was quite a successful trip! Love the lavender hearts. So cute.
