Missy meets a friend

Whoops! It's February already, wow, that came round quick.

Lots of news and catching up to do today. At the weekend we hosted another Swap and Shop day here to raise funds for the village charity the Goodwill Fund.

The Goodwill Fund helps other organisations in the village as well as individuals with hospital transport and prescription collections, Christmas dinners for the elderly and outings for the the youth club just to name a few things.

The Swap and Shop day is loosely based on the Swishing parties where you swap clothes just in this case we swap all things! The idea is that you bring bits and pieces you no longer want, check out what others have brought and hopefully leave with new items that you can make use of! We provided tea and cakes and people poppped a donation in the box if they wanted to and if they could afford to, that way it helps everyone. We had a lovely afternoon and got to catch up with lots of friends and neighbours and raised just over £120 for the charity too.

Photos of the day are non exsitant as I was far too busy chatting to people and forgot and Hubby was safely away in the Man Creche with the other menfolk!

Missy made friends with a tiger!

Although she was none to impressed when it appeared to move by itself!

I don't know about everyone else but we have had some rare moments of beautiful sunshine here over the past few days, back to the dreary drizzle today unfortunately.

Betty Chook grabbed a sunbaking opportunity over the weekend on the warm cobbles sheltered by the fence.

My other news is very exciting and just a little bit scary - Land Cuckoo is going to the Country Living Fair in March this year! Yikes! Not going alone though, Maggie from Sunflower Fabrics and I shall be sharing a stand together. We will be found on stand number H75 and will be going under the name Sunflower and Land Cuckoo. We will have some lovely products there, beautiful quilts and wall hangings, smellies and bunting, things for childrens rooms, gifts for the home and a colourful collection of wonderful fabrics.

So now I must away to the workshop and make more stock for the show, I'm sure you'll be seeing pictures here as we get nearer show time!

Take care all
