Back to Reality

Home again from Cornwall after a lovely few days at Cowslip Workshops. Linda and I were there with our Vintage French Textiles and other lovely goodies.
The weather was lovely and the sun shone for the three days we were there. The farm looked marvellous with daffodils and cowslips in flower all around and lots of lovely lambs frolicking in the fields with their Mums.
We had a great time with Jo and Stephen, who are so generous with their hospitality. We had lots of lovely customers, many of whom have become friends now that we go so regularly. There was an exhibition of quilts in the Workshop made by Sue Spooner and Helen Keenan which were very interesting and a delight to look at.
Friday evening we all had a meal together in the Restaurant which was looking gorgeous with all Jo's lovely textiles. The food as always was excellent and we all had a great time. It is difficult sometimes to remember that we are working here, but we do work very hard with all the packing and heavy lifting so we need to take care of ourselves and enjoy what we are doing. Going to Cornwall to work at Cowslip is one of nicest things we do and we are already looking forward to being back there at August Bank Holiday week-end. However, its back to work as usual and I am now busy getting things ready for the Vintage Fashion Salon at the Octagon, Milsom Place, Bath this week-end. Friday 18th to Sunday 20th.
This promises to be an exciting Fair and I shall be taking lots of lovely costume. Certainly hope it lives up to expectations.

Yes, it was great fun and good business. What more could we ask?
