I made it!!!

Well! the big 40 went by very smoothly - thank you so much for all your positive words, I know I have lots to look forward too now!!!
I was a very lucky girl, Baby Fig bought me a hamper she had created herself with every kind of sweet and drink that VIMTO make, and a dinky Vimto delivery van - anyone would think I like Vimto! 

Hubby bought me an ace mini weaving starter kit, containing a small loom, various wools and some hilarious instructions translated from German by someone who doesn't speak the language me thinks!!!

Mum and Dad bought me an Olympus PEN camera - I had been yearning for one for some time, and my Dad being my Photography guru couldn't help himself and keeps posing every time I see him. 

Of course, as with any new camera, the first photo's are usually of what is right in front of you - here is my little stitch boy keeping his mummy's foot stool warm, with the camera in 'pinhole' mode - ooh, listen to me!!

Life as ever never slows down, I am doing my first real craft fair this weekend in BRIXTON - only a few hundred miles away in a big city.....arghhhh! I am terrified to say the least, but as I was invited, I thought it time I started to take up opportunities when they present themselves - so if you are in the Brixton area, pop along to the Brix  either on Friday evening or Saturday, and tell me to CALM DOWN!!! 

now - where did I leave my sewing room???

Glad you had a good birthday, new cameras are great :) Have fun at the craft fair, it is scary but I've no doubt you'll meet some lovely crafters and hopefully the snow won't be too bad and you'll make a packet!! Did you have fun getting back from Harrogate, we didn't!! x

Good luck for the weekend! I don't do them any more.. well, I only ever did a couple and they were ones I had organised for charity back in the early nineties. Great fun, lots of interesting, kind and generous people. But, it was for charity which makes a difference to how often the hands go in the purses I think!
