Country Living Christmas Fair

12th November 2014

Today my sister and I went to Islington for a Christmas Fair and it was brilliant....

...rather wet but it didn't dampen our spirits...


....3 floors....


....this greeted us, all made from dried oranges, cloves cinnamon, wonderful smell!!


We started on the top floor and worked our way down....



I had to purchase a fairy for a special little girl....


....so delicate, all handmade, just couldn't resist!

I am just getting a little excited about Christmas!

I forgot to mention these beautiful hand dyed threads, a gift from Myfanwy Hart on Monday, I will really enjoy using them!


Work in progress, an aran cardigan using alpaca yarn, so lovely and soft to knit.


Home tomorrow, hope I can manage to pack all my purchases!
