Tomorrow is craft fair time again and I can’t wait! Once a month I attend the D&K Totally Craft and Makers Market at the Cheese and Grain, in Frome, where I catch up with my crafty friends, have a natter, a giggle, put the world to rights and treat myself to a plate of chips. Then, of course, there is the shopping. What a joy to have such a wonderful range of local, handcrafted goodies to choose from. I have bought numerous gifts, for friends and family, and several essential items for myself too. 😉
This is what my stall looked like at last months event. I design, and make, two different types of crochet. Firstly there are my crochet sculptures. I love creating these, but they are not quick to make. Because I work very tightly, and don’t use anything to stiffen my work, it is very hard on my hand. I love the results, and the reaction from customers who often haven’t seen this type of crochet before.
Then there is my more traditional crochet, gloves, brooches, embellishment etc, which gives my hands a rest from tight work, but allows me to continue crocheting in between sculptures.
I’m off now, to make sure I have everything ready for tomorrow. Then I will be baking a lemon drizzle cake, to take with me, for my fellow stallholders. 🙂
