There was a bouncy castle, some falconry, a barbeque and lot's of stalls from local people selling arty things and the loveliest cakes from my local cafe Pickled Cherry! I was lucky enough to be next to Pickled Cherry and they didn't half tempt me all day! The day was finished off with a cricket match between Burnopfield CC and their local rivals Lintz CC.
I made a stack of cards depicting local scenes and a stack of the smaller mounted prints. Most of the images I chose were of the woods around Burnopfield, the same woods I looked at as I sold my wares.
I met some lovely people and had a lovely day, despite the slightly rainy and windy weather at times!
So here's a little selection of photo's from the day!
Here's my patch on the day! Next to some other artists and a cake stand! Far too tempting!
The wonderful print box my Jon made me the day before! And the mini-prints I sell which are good to mix and match on the wall!
Cards! So many cards! These are all handmade and look quite pretty!
A close up of the print box! A couple of my favourite prints in the front of it!

I've always had trouble with trying work out Paper Piecing in my head. I've read a lot of descriptions on how to do it and different tips on it but it's never really clicked in my head. So I did the next logical thing and went on youtube!
I found this video, and watching someone else do it really made it click in my mind! I'm now ready to undertake a new quilt, with lots of Paper Piecing! Hint: It will involve woodland animals!
The Video Itself!
