My sewing stall

4 Nov

Last night I had a stall at a Charity Clothes swap, it was great fun, I sold a lot of things and I swapped 3 old garments for 3 new (well second hand)





George Michael!

8 Oct

I went to see George Michael play in Cardiff at the weekend and it was fantastic! He played with a Symphonic Orchestra who were excellent and he sang mostly ballads. He sang quite a lot of songs from the Listen without prejudice album which is my favourite!

Frome Artisan Market

8 Aug

We went to Frome at the weekend in the camper van. Every first Sunday of the month they have a fantastic market it fills the town. There were food stalls, craft stalls and a flea market. It was fantastic and is obviously very popular as there were loads of people there.





Lovely Lyme Regis

23 Jul

I have just spent a lovely day in Lyme Regis, the sun was shining and British Summer was in full swing. These quirky houses were along the sea front!

Cider champs

4 Jun

Went to the Welsh cider & perry festival today, it was a bit damp but still fun! I was delighted to find that 2 of my good friends had won the championship cups!

Olympic torch

25 May

We went to see the Olympic torch this evening as it descended upon Cardiff, what a lovely day for it!




Fossil hunting

10 May

Today I went to a fossil & gemstone warehouse in Bristol to buy stock for the Museum gift shop. Some of the Fossils were huge like these 2 foot Ammonites and some of the gemstones were beautiful.







Wonder wool

29 Apr

Going to Wonder wool yesterday was so inspiring, the colours, textures, the mountains of wool every where! There were some great demonstrations spinning, weaving felting! Him Indoors spent ages talking to a man who makes looms and I hope he is now going to make me one (although I expect the conversation swiftly moved on to making guitars as that is his real passion).



So I am sitting here with a basket full of wonderful wool that I bought wondering what I am going to make? I will keep you posted
