Happy Monday everyone and I hope you had a great weekend as the wintery weather creeps ever upon us ! Do you have snow ? I’m relieved it hasn’t come yet, I’m not quite ready for dog walking with snow boots on ! lol

I spent yesterday in the company of 45 designer makers at the Little Northern Contemporary Craft Fair, you can see a list of the exhibitors here. As usual there were some beautiful stands and new faces and work too. One that I was excited to meet was that of fellow blogger and genuinely warm, lovely artist Claire Leggett. Here is Claire with her colourful floral work.

We had quite a busy day with hot mulled wine and a christ-massey vibe. Thanks to Lindsey Tyson and Ima Pico for their company as my next door neighbours for the day too.

If you would like to purchase any work from myself there’s still time for christmas postings and it’s available here Fishink. A happy start to your week everyone.

    As always, thanks for sharing all the artful creations you are surrounded by. I would have loved to have attended this show. Loved the little Stitching for the Soul bird. And your bright and textured bird front and center is the bomb! (awesome). I guess I have a thing for birds–must be that obsession with flying. 🙂

      Thanks Joy it was a great event as talented peeps go and always a privilege to have the chance to chat to these illustrators and makers and see what makes them tick. Perhaps one day you’ll make it over but in the meantime, the pics are there for you to see too : )
