It has been a busy couple of weeks! Last week I had a day in London with meetings in the morning, followed by an afternoon with Nikki Stark at the Craft Central Designer Maker Sale in Clerkenwell. I was helping Nikki on her stall, but had a chance to nose around the sale and look at the other beautiful items on offer. I could have spent a fortune! I think I found something I liked on every stall. Here's a selection of a few of my favourites.
I tried really hard not to make any purchases but I was eventually won over by wool! One of the exhibitors was Fiona Daly who creates beautiful textiles from wool. I was really taken by some lavender pouches that she had. They had an illustration of a sheep on the front, the name of the sheep on the tag and a sample of the wool along the side. This was my little splurge as I love the smell of lavender and they were beautifully designed.
It was a really enjoyable afternoon and great to be able to meet the designers as well as see their products.
