The hoover gave up – the new hoover looks scared

Rewards for prolonged period of self-sufficiency so far: new soap dish

Indulgence required before household rebellion.

On my calendar today is written ‘To The Beach’ in pen. Following Christmas fairs on two consecutive weekends and many weeks of preparation a sea breeze was calling.

Ely Cathedral Christmas Gift and Food Fair was a tremendous event. The blue cotton drill hereditary cash bag, handed to me by my wonderful grandparents around 1985 following its retirement from the Alcester WI cake stall, was aired and back in use (an entreprenurial spirit was always encouraged).

And yesterday Histon Handmade, a contemporary design and craft fair with 14 other makers, over 750 visitors, old friends and new, and just 3 cushions left at the end of the day. Happy stats!

The order book is full and there are busy days ahead but today Well-next-the-Sea with a kite.img_5192img_5191img_5185img_5169img_5161img_5154

Living in East Anglia with my family and sewing machine I cover empty surfaces with scraps of fabric, search for treasure at Emmaus and the Red Cross jumble sales and take immense pleasure from making freehand machine embroidered textiles for the curious and discerning.
