Stepping Up a Gear

Lavenham was great fun, once again I met some lovely people and we had a ball, despite the inevitable 'lunchtime lull' (that seems to be a traditional crafting expression by the way; I heard several people using the phrase, independently of each other.  Nice to know I'm learning the lingo!)

In the stream of customers, it was really good to see some familiar faces - some of which I'm not going to see as often any more, because they're off on new adventures of their own.  But other friends have promised to pop along and check out the more local fairs that I've got lined up this year.

The berets did well but for now I'm concentrating on building up stock for fairs later in the year, especially as I'm not able to take jewellery to one of them.  Work put in now hopefully means I can afford not to panic later... we shall see!

I'm half way through a cute little dusky pink pinafore dress, using the first of that lovely new wool I picked up in Cardiff.  Which means I have several new knit pictures to put up soon, so watch this space...

We're taking ourselves off for a day trip to the capital on Saturday morning, so a trip to Beadworks in Great Tower Street is on the cards, I'm really looking forward to it.  I'm hoping to be able to pick up somenew pendant ideas, hopefully in Murano glass or metal/ceramics.

And it's no time to be sitting back and relaxing just because the first fair is behind me... only four weeks until the next one.  So if anyone's in the general location of Dartford on 13th April, it would be lovely to see you.
