Day 46: Homemade Daily Challenge

At the weekend I went to a brand new Craft Fair in sunny Kettering (where I live). It was organised by Fran from The Little Gift Store and took place at the Naseby Hotel (formerly the George). It is a lovely old venue with lots of character and original features, the perfect spot for a handmade and vintage market. There was a really good range of stalls and they were all of an excellent quality, also everyone was very friendly and happy to chat about their makes. We also especially enjoyed the tea and cake.

I was really delighted to see supertalented local craftsperson Lorna from Dab and a Dash. Lorna makes gorgeous notebooks and covers from all sorts of unusual fabrics, but also loves scrapbooking. I was really pleased to have found the perfect drawing book for my little girl on Lorna's stall. It has a sheet of Dolly Dingle Back Home Again (which took me back about 30 years) on the cover, and is spiral bound with coloured pages throughout. There are also lovely details on the inside and back covers, my little girl loved it and so do I, thanks Lorna :)

Glad Eva is happy with her new notebook.

It was a lovely fair and THANK YOU so much for not only visiting my stall but the fantastic review.
There was a great selection of stalls and it does make you worry about your own so thank you very much.

It is isn't it Sharon.

She loves it Lorna, we are taking it away with us this weekend so she can make a visual diary (yes I know she's only 3 but she's got now hope with me as her Mother). You are most welcome your stall looked brilliant and as always your makes are awesome :)
