Hi, I went back to work on Monday and many thanks for all of your get well wishes, they seem to be working as I am getting back to normal. Although I do seem to have a creative block and a desire to do repetitive things but this will pass in due course.
I only worked until Wednesday this week as I had a few days owing so Wednesday evening I had a quick look round the German Market and The Ice Rink ( scene of my downfall or rather falling down last year) One or two strange characters were spotted wandering around....
Then on to Stitched Up meeting and the chance to make lace, drink tea and gossip with friends. New friends are always welcome so if you live near Sherwood, Nottingham, drop us a line:-)
On Thursday I took the chance to amble down to Nottingham Contemporary to see the David Hockney and Frances Stark Exhibitions. I still do not like David Hockney but Frances Stark made me smile and I suspect that the girls and myself may get to spend an hour or two in the bar there from time to time.
Claire busy setting out Pinky and Boo stall
Today I have been keeping Claire company at the West Bridgford Craft fair selling her wonderful brooches, bags, aprons whilst spinning up a storm on my drop spindle.
Tomorrow we go down to the Long Eaton Chestnut fair, then on Sunday Claire, Vicky, Hannah and myself will board a coach for the knitting and stitching show at Harrogate. Two coaches are due to go from the Textile Workshop and I suspect ours will be the loud one. Hopefully I will have room to do some knitting in the way there as I really need the practise:-) so far I think I have conquered the knit part, next I will think about purl!
Have a great weekend, whatever you may be doing.
