Its been a busy summer! Getting things ready for school this week. Small boy is not so small boy any more as he will be starting in primary school. So two sets of uniforms laid out on the guest bed this year! We searched high and low for bags but have yet to find decent ones that dont cost a fortune, fit A4 size things and don't look like they'll fall apart after two months, any suggestions most welcome! The same issue with pencil cases, I might try making ones yet.
I had the fun of having a stand in the Craft Village at the Tinahely Agricultural Show in Wicklow on Monday which was brilliant. It is a huge country fair and a big day out for all the family.
It was a very busy day from 10 in the morning until late afternoon with lots of lovely people stopping for a chat, to look and to buy. The atmosphere was great in the tent with some amazing crafts at the other stalls. And you can imagine my delight when I was presented with a rosette for my sewing!
I was telling my mother I was making a skirt for my daughters new doll and she told me I should be making a dress for my daughter and not the doll. Rightly so! And being a good girl, I listened to my mother and made one! Just finished number two and three today (a matching set for my daughter and my little niece). I think I might have a new addiction!!
Hope you are having a great summer (or technically it is autumn).
All the best,
