Homespun Fair

I've had a fab time today - Homespun was another great success! It was lovely to see old and new faces - and meeting fellow bloggers was one of the highlights! So nice to put faces to names!
Anyway, I managed to take a few snaps before it all started so I'll give you a little tour!

Many of you will be familiar with the gorgeous creations by Viv (Hen's Teeth). I love the brooches above and these charming purses...

Look at these great notebooks by Jane...

Wonderful goodies from Michelle (Cowboys and Custard)... check out that Codeg phone!

...and beautiful buttons...

This photo just doesn't do Treutmade's stand justice....sorry Gertie!

I was lucky enough to be sharing the stage space with Amanda (Shabby Chick) and her mum...

and Jenny, whose delightful creations (each with it's own personality) raised many a smile!

So here's my stand - remembered to take a photo this time!

Next time I'll make more lavender fish - I sold out in the first 2 hours! Any items that didn't go will be in my Folksy shop in the next few days.
So, all in all, a fantastic day was had - and look at this shirt I found for Steve!

A bargain at £3! And it fits him perfectly!
Shame... I could have made something really pretty from that!


  1. Looks like a great time was had by all

  2. It was so lovely to meet you Kirsty and I am so pleased with my fish and cards, which I will have framed. I wanted to come and say goodbye but I had a bad reaction to something I ate at lunch and I had to leave quickly to face the 2 hour drive home while I still could!

    Wow, the Duffer shirt was a real find, well done you x

  3. Good morning to you Mrs sixty one A. Wow... that looks like such good fun. Your stall looks amazing- get sewing cos I have a real need to have one of those little lavender fishies. Have a great week, Ax

  4. The fair looked great, I LOVE your fishes on a little dishy! I have to acquire some!

  5. Lovely to have met you ... =o)

  6. I can see why the fishies were SO popular!

    It all looks an absolute delight, everyone had fabulous things on their stalls, thanks for the pics

  7. I do love your work, I adore all things driftwood, especially with a coastal theme. Also, thanks for introducing me to Hen's Teeth, what wonderful work. Karen.

  8. How is it I live in Cpornwall and never manage to get to this fair?!! Next year I am determined x

  9. Wow certainly looks like a fantastic fair... where abouts was it? May have to coincide my holiday there next year. We have only just come back from Padstow! x

  10. That looks like a great event and your stall looked lovely. Little bit far for me though!

  11. Hi Kirsty, Love how you set up your stall, so simple and stylish. One day I'll get there to say hello!! Me and Pipany can drag each other along...

  12. Fabulous! I wish I could have been there ..... but it's just a little bit too far away!

  13. It was a lovely day and great it there and thanks for your company on the stage! Hope that your sciatica has eased today?
    Take care...Amanda (Shabby Chick) xx

  14. ooo looks so lovely, we were on our way back from padstow that day, i ventured to suggest we take a backward detour but was met with stoney year maybe!!

  15. everything looked just lovely - does " Jenny " have a blog?

  16. It was a lovely day indeed and so nice to meet you Kirsty. I am not surprised your shoal of fish swam away so quickly... all your creations were delightful!
