Makey do - makers and creaters!

Wow, that was quick. The Makey 'do' has been and gone!

It was a really good day and so nice to meet so many other crafty people that I have seen via their blogs! I love my kids but it is so nice to have a day out without them doing something that I really enjoy. I sold some bits, met some lovely and very talented people and also had a little wander around Sandwich at the end too!

These were a couple of bits of mine, some cards and mermaids.

This is the work of the very talented Sam from Pants and Paper visit her folksy shop now - her work is amazing, it was her first ever fair and she sold most of her stock! Mainly because it was so gorgeous, she makes these beautiful felted wreaths.

And of course the very lovely and talented Kirsty from Me Plus Molly was there. Look at her beautiful purses, aren't they stunning! It was lovely to catch up with her and have a natter!

And this is the stall of the very clever lady who organised the Makey 'do' - Jennyflowerblue. I didn't manage to get a picture of Jenny as whenever I made it over to her stall, she was always running around, sorting things out and making sure everyone was happy! But you can see her lovely brooches, bags and rings. And oh, look in the background there, behind the lady in is nearly a picture of Kirsty from Me plus molly..... ohhhh so close Kirsty ...

This lovely lady is Linda from Knitorama who I came with. She sells the most gorgeous wool and beautiful knits. If you have ever visited Whitstable, you have probably met Linda - she is a real character and works in Taking the Plunge. If you want to learn how to knit, then Linda is your lady as she runs knitting workshops in Whitstable at the Horsebridge.

Another lovely stall, this time Sheila from Clover crafts and Curios. Don't those buttons look good enough to eat! To me they looked like delicious sweets!

And finally, to prove we did actually have a little look around Sandwich - although curiously, all the shops shut at 4pm! So it did feel a little like a ghost town. But what a beautiful one. Look at this gorgeous colbalt blue church door. Oh, I just love it!
So thanks Jenny for organising such a great event. I think I might have to steal the goodie bag idea for the Whitstable Christmas fair!



Looks fab, it's a shame I couldn't be there, BOO HOO!!!

Glad you got a snap of Knitorama too! It was lovely to meet her. And what's all this about 'bits' on your stall - those mermaids were lovely.
