I was so looking forward to my two week holiday from school, it started off ok and I thought I was just a bit tired, then I got a sore throat and started to feel very unwell. Anyway I ended up developing a chest infection, attempted to go back to work after the holidays only to be sent straight home and ended up having three more weeks off work and three lots of antibiotics! I'm back to work tomorrow and I am really looking forward to it, though ask me again about 2o'clock in the afternoon!
So all my plans for making and sorting were pretty much scuppered, though I've been trying to make up for it...
Unfortunately I didn't get anything made for the April Monthly Make, but have managed some cushions for this month, they might look a bit wrinkly, I haven't put the pads in yet.
I've used vintage fabric and a mixture of new and old trims.
Inbetween showers we have got to a couple of boot sales....
After selling off most of my huge tin collection last year it is slowly amassing again!
Mr TabbyRoo found this pretty Meakin plate....
Yesterday Mr.TabbyRoo and I went along to the local cricket ground where they were filming for Dickinsons Real Deal. It was interesting to see how it's done and what a lengthy process it is. We queued up for a couple of hours , we didn't get chosen to be filmed, just as well really we had gone straight from a boot sale and looked as though we been dragged through several bushes! David Dickenson looked his usual dapper self and I have to say he didn't appear to be so orange. We had taken along our small Tiffiny studios tray to be valued, and was very pleased with the estimate of £80 to £120, considering Mr.TabbyRoo bought it some years ago for 50p, this doesn't happen to us very often, we work on the premise of buying things like we and don't purposely look for valuables- no we will never be rich!
Our next event is a Spring Fair organised by Handmade and Vintage-Saturday 21st May, 10-3 at York House, Stony Stratford. There will be three floors of Vintage and handmade goodies, an old fashioned tea room and Betty the vintage ice cream van.
Have a good week
