Well the art and craft fair was exhausting! loading and unloading the car - in the rain >:>(
Sue, who works there was incredibly helpful and made it an awful lot easier :>) helping me unload and load up at the end and providing a welcome cup of tea as we finished setting up - thank you again Sue, you were a treasure. Valerie who had set it up had organised it really well and everything ran like clockwork from knowing where you should be to parking and checking on us frequently - thank you to Valerie too.
There was some lovely unusual work - photoetched silver jewellery, fabric bead necklaces, fantastic scarves, art work in light boxes (an interesting concept and one I've often wanted to have a go at), hand made leather/mixed fabric bags, farm foods, felted wool 'paintings' - these were really unusual and lovely, basket making, Christmas decorations and more .... and us 3 painters.
I'd known before we went that paintings were probably going to be too expensive for peoples expectations but the cards went really well and there were lots of compliments, which is nice :>) There were a lot of cat lovers out today, so the cards featuring my cats were popular! it's funny as they were drawn purely for myself really and I just thought I'd do a few 'in case' they appealed to anyone.
Joanna the A level student came, had a chat and took photos and is a really nice girl, starting a foundation course for an arts degree this summer.
So it was a good day and the event was a success despite the lousy non-stop rainy day
