It's autumn already - I love this time of year! Recently, I've been spending time finishing things off. There are some more lovely little items in my folksy shop including character badges and more dogs. I have been featured on the folksy front page and on two lovely blogs. It's always lovely to hear people commenting on your makes - so thanks guys!
I'm trying to think of Christmas ideas and looking out for more craft fairs, so if anyone hears of any in West Yorkshire please do let me know! Work will be very busy over the coming months, so craft fairs will be harder to take part in. I will probably put a lot on folksy etc.
My lovely and bestest boy Luke is 8 years old on Sunday. I'm making his present in the next few days - can't belive my nephew is so old already! He's great fun and very unique with his quirkiness - so happy birthday luke for Sunday. I'll be at his party and most probably building up lots of lego with/for him!
Here's a few things from my folksy shop and a few things to come:

Lovely weather...

I do wonder why the weather could not be this warm on Saturday! Today was gorgeous weather, ideal for a trip to Harewood House. Saturday however, was very windy and cold! The Pannier Market was blown away! The wind meant chasing things around, holding onto things and generally panicking over random gusts of wind and showers! Putting this aside the fair was a huge success proving busier than last time in terms of interest and sales.

I had some help from lovely friends and got chatting to some lovely crafters! sadly that's the last Pannier market for this year. I have a fair this Saturday at 'Angels Share', a bar in Chapel Allerton as part of their self titled 'Arts Festival'. There will be music, food, drink and more and the fair is from 12-5 - hope to see you there!

In other news, I took myself off to Harewood House today for a meeting. The weather was great and the meet went well. The gift shop will be selling a small range of my crafts (including owls, cupcakes, dogs and more) from october. This may lead to more exciting products as well. The location is gorgeous, scenery picturesque and the pretty birds were a treat.

All in all lots going on!
