Been another busy week this week although my temporary job at the Brewery came to an end on Friday and I'm back signing on the unemployment list come Monday. I really enjoyed my time at Mitchells and met some lovely people while I was there. I was given a lovely bunch of flowers, a gift voucher for the local craft shop and a large bar of chocolate which was a lovely surprise - as I was only there as a temp I was so touched by their kindness. (More than my last employers DRI - I was there 16 years, made redundant and didn't even get a handshake off my former managers!!!!!!!!!) but I'm not bitter - Ha!
On to happy things:
We had a great day out today at the Cumbria Steam Gathering at Cark. The weather was good and the sun shone until about 2.30 when it clouded over a little - but it didn't spoil our day. There were hundreds of vintage vehicles, Commercial vans, motorbikes, cars, steam traction engine, tractors, ex army vehicles - the list goes on and on. There were two craft tents where we bought some lovely Home-made Sweet Chilli Jam that is hot but not too hot and some fabulous Coconut Macaroons that were scrummy. I walked my legs off and I'm feeling worn out this evening but it was a great day and I had forgotton how much fun Country Fairs are.
Unfortunately I forgot my to take my camera so I have no photos to show so I will post a couple more of my recent craft obsession Felt Badges (at the moment I'm in the middle of working on some Halloween designs to be unveiled soon!).
Another Felt Heart in white and pink with felt flowers and pink seed beads:-
And an owl which was a commission order by a friend who requested it in blue:-
I have also got a commission for two Christmas Christmas stockings for a friends' two baby granddaughters. I'm going to start these this week as the is a bit of applique work to do on each of them.
Thanks for looking.
