Phew. What. A. Week.

Wow, whadda week. Work, work, work. Poorly wee man and a bit more work. Alongside the rather hectic day job I took part in 2 local events - both great fun! On Thursday the Ladies Who Love Evening of Indulgence which was basically a food-drink-shopping fest! Organised by a local company called 'Ladies Who Love...' who put on fab things for girls to do. Hair demos, nail bars, wine bars and sweets, it was very busy and Once I Was was very well received. Although I could have done without the cosmetic surgery leaflets I kept getting handed. It had been a long week!!!

...eyes shut, as per usual...

On Saturday I loaded up the car again and headed down to the Salisbury Arts Centre Christmas Craft Fair where a whole bunch of really diverse exhibitors were showing. Was a great day and the 'Once I Was' stocks were rather depleted!

There were some great artists from Brighton exhibiting, I brought a gorgeous print from a lovely lady called Liz Toole... you can check out her work here:

Additions to the very small knitting kit..

Just back from a lovely stroll around Salisbury with the wee man and along with our traditional Tuesday Ice Bun we also had a rummage around a few charity shops (there are LOADS in the town) and I got hold of a few bits for the knitting kit. Lovely wooden handled crochet hook (going to re-teach myself how to crochet), chunky duck-egg blue knitting needles and a packet of knitting needles in a really lovely paper packet. There were so many to choose from!!!

I've not really done much knitting as I don't think I've got the patience but have a few ideas up my sleeve using homemade and vintage yarns, texture, moulding and enormous stitching al a Claire Anne O'Brien These stools are beautiful! So tactile, I wonder what they feel like?
