Word Of The Week

21 Sep

14th September – 20th September 2014

Word of the Week this week is Handmade.

Saturday I got up at silly o’clock to drive to Hampton Court Palace to meet a fellow #postcircle #goose friend for Kirstie Allsops, The Handmade Fair.

It was a lovely setting to have the fair.



It had a slightly different feel to other craft goods fairs as the main focus was on learning skills & hobbies rather than just shopping for your existing hobbies.


We started off with browsing the sellers tents after a cup of tea and some breakfast.

Then it was off too World Pomination!



I have used clover pompom makers before but it was still fun to add to the attempt at the record breaking pompom chain.

Later in the day after lunch and a quick catch up with another #postcircle #goose friend & her sister.

It was Corsage making with Stuart Hillard from the BBC’s Sewing Bee.



And finally we attended Annie Sloane’s talk with Kirstie about her chalk paint and the styles in which in can be used.


The atmosphere was all very relaxed and Kirstie herself was to be seen all day around the fair getting stuck in with a very down to earth and non diva ish air about her. (I am not a huge fan of her gushing style on various Television shows although always watch her latest series, but on the day she seemed a generally more relaxed character)

All in all a fun day had.
