Market Harborough Vintage Fair

I am oh so excited that tomorrow I will be doing the Vintage Fair in Market Harborough. I've done lots of little fairs in the past but this really feels like a 'proper' event. It has been carefully and well advertised and will feature the right sort of sellers for my items to mingle in with. If you are in the area do pop in! (Ill be the one downing coffee looking rather scared)

Latest Work - Blue Tit Embroidery

I think I was subconsciously inspired by our lack of heating for the last three weeks in creating this wintry scene. Its fixed of a fashion but we have a very poorly boiler.

I originally printed the blue tit using a lino block and then stitched in the detailing. There is also a little appliqué on the birds breast. Its a skill I have not fully mastered yet.

I will be taking this piece to the Market Harborough Vintage and Handmade Fair next week. I'm so excited it will be my first 'serious' craft event. I'm hoping this time I will be able to come away feeling satisfied with my days work.
