My Stand at Aberystwyth Arts Centres Winter Craft & Gift fair 2011

We had a wonderful day setting up my stand at Aberystwyth Arts Centres Winter Craft & Gift fair 2011. Here is my Mr Rainbow being super helpful! Some people come and set there stand up in lightening time, us on the other hand like to take our time pondering over coffee, lunch and afternoon tea and cake - well why not? The atmosphere up at Aberystwyth Arts Centre is great and so is the cafe!!

But we got there in the end : )

Can you see my rainbow of new funky fabric hair accessories?

Me feeling happy we had finished and loving how my stand looks this year - please if you're anywhere near go check it's a fantastic place and a great selection of gifts and crafts. I will be doing lots of Christmas shopping there!!

Fabric Shopping!

We had a crazy trip to Birmingham yesterday on a mission to buy some rainbow fabrics for some new projects!! After searching online for fabrics I decided that i needed to see, feel and smell?? what i was buying : ) I had been eying up lots of lovely fabrics on Cotton Patches website so we decided to take a trip to civilisation to see what we could find.

Well as you can see from the photo we did well!!

The shop is fantastic and we spent hours (alot of hours) perusing and mixing and matching and deciding and oohing and aahing and the staff are all so very helpful it really is a great shop with great service - and one day i will make a quilt very inspiring - but for now, new rainbows to make!

Outta Control!

Seems like the UK has gone somewhat crazy!! My thoughts go out to all those in the cities and especially those affected by the riots.

Luckily we are safe in the middle of nowhere where the only out of control thing was my felt pile, which has now been given a new dotty home!!!

Logo in Progress

Most of my week so far has been spent working on my new 'Clara Luna' logo!
I have had this idea burning a hole in my head for so long now - good to get some time to work on it : ) I have grand plans for adding lots of beads and buttons and stitches to it when it is felted - but first I must tidy up the rainbow of chaos...........
