Crafty Tales

Just a little insight to what Aunt Jane's Attic will be doing in the next few months, we will be at all these craft fair venues selling handmade cards, lavender bags made from Liberty fabric, Harris Tweed and gorgeous velvet, journals featuring vintage images and lace, bookmarks using beads and pearls and Harris Tweed and wool felt, some finished with vintage crocheted flowers, also some love lavender hearts reusing embroidered tray cloths and charms and beads, also new this year wall hangings, one with two little girls has a family tie.

This is our newest fair at Bridport Arts Centre called Aunty Ann's Craft Fair, looks like its going to be a good one, was very well attended last Saturday, we had a great time and met lots of lovely new people and old friends.

new line - wall hangings

this hanging I have used a picture of my Auntie when she was a little girl gathering flowers from her fathers nursery, which was in Cheshire (eventually ending up with my Mum and Dad running it for a few years, before it was sold for building) Margaret, my Auntie grew up there and when she got married moved to Taunton, Somerset, thats why I have so many happy memories of this area.  I incorporated the picture, printing it onto material first, into the tray cloth, cutting out the little arch area to fit Margaret and her friend Nora in.
