My friend Sue from Apple Harvest suggested we should apply for a joint stall earlier in the year as it's an event we both loved, and were thrilled when we got a stall! Like me, Sue uses lots of vintage papers and upcycling in her work so it seemed natural to show our pieces together.
The weather forecast had promised us a lovely weekend outside, but when the Saturday morning came it was a different story. Setting up was a little dull, and then the rain started - and didn't stop all day! It didn't prevent some determined visitors though and we had some customers to chat with. Being quieter than the event usually is also meant that we had plenty of time to wander around visiting other stalls and talking to other artists and craft makers.

Sunday though was a completely different day. The sun shone, the sky was blue and the event was packed! It was wonderful seeing so many people enjoying the art and the gardens in the their full glory.
