What a fabulous event!

As you walk through the gates you are greeted with a fine and varied array of gorgeous food outlets.

Quirky little vans and trailers selling everything from fresh spicy Pakora, to herbal teas, gluten free goodies and my personal favourite, a mobile Prosecco van.

And I must say this is the most appealing dashboard I’ve ever seen…


Despite the overcast weather what struck me was how colourful the whole event was. Everywhere you looked there were glorious colours and ladies nose down in a craft project.

Here is Stuart from The Great British Sewing Bee giving a demonstration on making a corsage…


Giant knitting…


Needle felted animals…


Hand painted flowers for cake decorating…


As you might expect, men were somewhat in the minority but we found this chap selling the most beautiful hand forged scissors…



I was particularly impressed by the nifty buttonhole scissors and purchased a pair for my scissor collection. How many pairs is too many…? (#hoarder)

After a morning of mooching around the shopping villages I headed to my main purpose for the day and headed for GMC  where my book signing was to take place.

I met so many lovely people and talked myself hoarse, but it was fab!

Thanks to all of you who came to say hello, and to all of you who bought my book. I’ll post pictures of the beaded clutch bag that I was working on as soon as it’s finished.

I’m already looking forward to next years fair, but might need to start saving my pocket money, I spent a small fortune. There were just so many gorgeous things to buy!

Note to self: next year take a shopping trolley.
