What a busy time I have had recently (nothing new there). On Wednesday I went to Plymouth with my Mum and daughter to have a day out shopping ending with us seeing Elbow in concert. We had a great day but the highlight was seeing my favourite band live again. As regular readers know I am a bit of an Elbow fanatic and have a huge crush on Guy Garvey the lead singer with the beautiful voice. Elbow fans must be the nicest fans in the world. We were right down near the front, a few rows back, and there was absolutely no pushing or shoving at all. You could have had a cup of tea without spilling a drop. Mum, who is quite tiny, kept on having people in front of her asking if she could see, when she said no, they made her go in front until she was right down the front, grinning back at us!!! I have got her hooked now and at last she can see what all the fuss has been about. She loved it as did my daughter. Sadly I didn't get as close as last time
but it was good enough for me!
My fabrics have been featured in the April 2009 edition of Country Living, out now. I had forgotten all about sending them fabrics last November and it was only when Claire told me she had spotted my mention that I remembered. Magazines work so far in advance.
They used some pretty Spring floral fabrics in their Easter Inspiration feature as well as using the spotty tissue paper and baker's twine I always use to wrap our parcels in, although they forgot to mention that! It's a lovely feature and makes me excited about the impending arrival of Spring.
I will be having a stall at the Talent for Textiles sale at The Meeting House in Ilminster, Somerset on April 1st. This is a wonderful event with some gorgeous stalls selling vintage and antique textiles, Lizzie will be there too. There is also the wonderful Gallery Cafe for lunch or refreshments. Let me know if you would like to come and I can send you an invitation.
I am also happy to announce that my 3rd Open House Sale will be held on Thursday 30th April, Friday 1st May and Saturday 2nd May. If you would like an invitation, please let me know and I will pop one in the post to you. It will be Bank Holiday weekend so you could bring your family for a break in North Devon and visit me at the same time. Hope to see some of you then.
