Maker’s Market St George’s Hall, Festival of Making

Gosh the week kicked off with us being interviewed by BBC Lancashire by Dominic Busby and Rosie Dummer to promote the weekend’s Festival of Making in Blackburn. We had a lovely weekend 6th and 7th May at the maker’s market in St George’s Hall surrounded by 35 lovely makers of wonderful things. We do love makers!

Lyme Park Autumn Fair

Yesterday was a scorcher at the Lyme Park Autumn Fair, an artisan fair in the most exquisite of settings. We had a stall within the marquees beside spinners, woodturners, candlemakers and cheese makers and the girls were able to do cartwheels all day on the lawn overlooking the wonderful Dutch gardens. As guardians to some delightful Papier Mache Zoo doggie-bears and busts we couldn’t resist venturing out to explore the park, Crow Wood playground, the deer and we even caught a glimpse of Mr Darcy in the boating lake …..ooh er !
