Don't Panic Mr Mainwearing!!

Showing my age a bit with this post title! May be lost on some of you! A week today Ruby and I visited the Contemporary Craft Festival in Bovey Tracy. It was a baking hot day and I thoroughly enjoyed myself - although we didn't stay as long as I would have liked because Ruby was feeling a little poorly towards the end. May be it was having to steer me away from all the lovely goodies I wanted to buy!
I managed to have a chat with Kirsty Elson from Kirsty Elson Designs and Poppy Treffry from ... well err ... Poppy Treffry who were both fabulous. And I also met in person Kate from The Angel Bill Trading Company - who I've got to know via Facebook but not in person. And it was good to catch up with Anya Keeley at her fantastical stand and Julia Jowett with her lovely wire ladies which I just adore.
So, whilst it was a brilliant day, it has also made exhibiting at the Cornwall Design Fair much more of a reality and I'm getting pretty nervous about it.  I had a bit of a meltdown about how I was going to dress my stand on my (non-existant) budget, but I've sort of recovered from that and I have a few ideas that I hope will work. And I'm making some smaller pieces (see above) that hopefully will sell OK. It's so difficult knowing how much to take but I suppose you take more than you think because it's better to bring it back that run out whilst you're there! (If only ...)
Wishing you a fab weekend in the sunshine
