Newark Antiques Fair.

Last Friday Tony and I went to Newark, Nottingham to the antiques fair it is billed as the largest and my feet would say 'Yes it is' it was a lovely sunny day and we walked miles around the showground, there was so much to see some really beautiful stuff, we just love to browse, I did buy a precious pin cushion it was Victorian, pressed glass with a silver band around and a velvet cushion for the pins the cushion is very worn, I love that it means it was used and loved, I also bought a lovely brooch(Pin) it is pewter a long stalk and leaf with a pink Tulip head made from glass I love it. I found some nice vintage plain white cotton pillowcases they are lovely quality I will embroider these for presents, all in all we had a good day.

Dinner with Kate and Steve

Hello, what a busy week lots going on, lots of sewing and shopping and the garden needs attention but, yesterday we went to my daughter Kate's for dinner, we had a lovely night with lots of baby talk, they now know they are having a boy so we can start to think blue, Kate looks beautiful with her bump and Steve looks so proud, we talked and talked and we saw the 20 week scan, they are really amazing so clear, Kate was relieved to have this scan she now knows that things are normal and she and the baby are progressing well. As you can see I have completed a crochet blanket and have added a frill it is very pretty and it's the first one I have ever done I am very pleased with it. Kate and I are going shopping soon to Mama's and Papa's I can't wait.
