Craft Fair and Exhibition days

Two busy weekends. The first at Atherstone fun day and the second at Elmesthorpe Art and Craft Exhibition.

This event was enjoyed by everyone; crafters and revellers. The sun shone, bands played, dogs showed, and I do believe the local pubs did a roaring trade !
St. Mary's Church was filled with a large selection of crafts, including brass rubbing and local spinners.

The second one was held at Elmesthorpe Village Hall and St. Mary's Church. (where history tells us that King Richard's men stayed over night before the Battle of Bosworth)


  Within the church there was this wonderful display of beautiful quilts

And Lyn's tatting ...

Sadly, my phone / camera battery went flat before I had managed to take pics of the display in the village hall (next door to the church)., or my own needle felted sculptures on display.; but never mind; and I did sell a couple of pieces.


  1. Love your purses! And the coasters with the sheep are really cute! The church is fabulous! I so miss being overseas seeing all of the rich history in the buldings!

  2. Thank you Kelly. The sheep have proved to be popular, so at the moment I feel as though I'm felting sheep for England !...having a 2 day show at the weekend in Tissington, Derbyshire.
    I admire your work also. The textures and colours are inspiring.
    I've never experienced Florida sunshine..but maybe one day...

  3. I'm not surprised the sheep are so popular they have such great expressions, and all different. I can hardly believe how skilled you are now as a feltmaker when you only started recently! xx
