Nice day in Tenbury

It was a bit nippy in Tenbury yesterday! The market stalls had ice on the tops and woolly hats were definately needed. My sweetest sale was to a lovely woman who was in the early stages of pregnancy and bought a pair of little booties as the first gift to her baby :)

Tenbury AppleFest this weekend

Just about ready for our first outing of the autumn at the AppleFest in Tenbury Wells on the south Shropshire border. Felted some new hats - we had to light the woodburner to dry them and sweltered for a couple of days! Pricing, making business cards, pickling onions, it's all go in this little corner of the Long Mynd.

Hats drying in front of the fire

wild horses up the road, nothing to do with hats

Back to it, at last

We have now moved into a house on the beautiful Long Mynd in Shropshire and are happily making away. I've just been to the Colinette factory shop at Llanfair Caereinion and bought lots of yummy mohair to mix in with felting wool (from knitting 4 fun) to make a new batch of hats. Pinks, reds and blues mainly. I'm also in the process of making an etsy shop, but there never seems to be enough hours in the day! Colin is making more felt brooches, mainly in lovely natural shades this time from named breeds of sheep.
Planning some shows in the next few months so watch this space...
