Weekend preparations

Oh my word, look at this - two blog posts in two days!  This could be habit forming, lets hope!

I am busy getting ready for this bank holiday weekend which is going to be rather full on!  For the three days I am going to be at Wrest Park in Silsoe, Bedfordshire with many other crafters and artists.  I have not done this show before but I have only heard good reports about it from other traders and visitors alike.  Plus the fact that Romor Exhibitions who organise us all are such a lovely family company I feel pretty sure that it will be a lovely weekend for all of us.

And then if that wasn't enough I am also going to be at the Gransden Air Show which is held in a village just a little way away from us here.  It is to raise funds for Children in Need and for the two years that I have been there before it has been a great day out, for me that is, although I do assume that is is just as good for the customers too!

Clearly I can't be in both places at the same time so my Saturday lad (hubby!) will be taking up the reigns at Wrest Park on the Sunday whilst I am watching the aeroplanes.

In the meantime, I decided that it was about time that I finished off this chair that has been in various stages of completion for the past year or so!
Don't look too closely, it is for display only, I am not a master upholsterer by any stretch of the imagination and have not quite got the colours right but it was a good effort whilst using up the remnants and some spare paint!

I am pleased with how it looks and it will be just right for displaying cushions and quilts and maybe I will even rest a while on it at some point over the weekend!

Righto, must get back to work folks. 
Take care all

  1. It looks lovely, the chair, that is, very well upholstered, just like me!!

    It sounds like a busy weekend ahead for you and Hubby, I hope you make lots of money and lots of new customers.

    Me and mine are Car Booting on a massive scale. Things are being dragged out of cupboards and boxes, and priced up ready for our big sale bonanza.

    I will have a clutter free house if it kills me!

Thank you for your comments, I do read them all and sometimes I even reply, now that I have figured out how to! Thanks again, take care x
