July already.

Well so much for my good intentions of regular blogging....unfortunately I've not been very well lately and sadly had to cancel my trip to Canada...huge apologies to all those lovely people I was to have worked with ...I feel very disappointed and hope to replan my trip as soon as possible.
In the meantime June shot by as a bit of blur and I'm now feeling a lot better, rested and almost ready for Art in Action in 2 weeks.
I now have loads of  admin and paperwork to catch up tht's built up  over the past few weeks including all the photos of the wonderful Handmade, Vintage & Textiles Fair we held in my local village, Bishopsteignton on May 27th.   It was a lovely day for all (despite the weather..) and we had loads of visitors, lots of lovely stalls selling all types of handmade and vintage goodies...
Luckily for us the Hall was already decked up with Union Jack bunting for the Jubilee celebrations!

It was such a great day, we all had such fun.  Looking forward to the next fair - the Handmade and Vintage Christmas Fair, on Saturday November 10th, again at Bishopsteignton Village Hall, nr Teignmouth, which will be even bigger and better!!  Look forward to seeing you there.   Oh and a huge thank you to my daughter Bryony who came and ran the Tea Room for us so brilliantly.  Can't believe we didn't have a photo of her....
