Home from Cowslip.

I've just had a fabulous weekend at Cowslip. it is my favourite place to visit and this was Jo's annual Christmas Fair.

My table ready to go!! See that beautiful vintage quilt behind? I bought it and it's now on the back of my sofa. More off that some other time.....

So much to see........beautiful white wood work and rows of bears......

Cat's amazing textile pictorial textile art.....

Lovely hand made pottery...............

Lots of floral baskets.............


Vintage textiles, buttons and gorgeous bits and pieces.


Inspirational quilts.


and my favourite , the fabulous reprodution fabrics from Petra prins.
I have been enjoying visiting Petras stand at the Festival of Quilts for many years now. It was a real treat to meet both her and Mary Koval. It's so nice to see their passion for antique and traditional quilts. I was truly inspired, thank you both.

It was a truly memorable weekend and if you can get British TV watch out for Kirsty Allsops Christmas special and visit Cowslip yourself.


Have a great week.

Looks like it was a lovely time indeed. So much inspiration to be found. Our annual Christmas bazaar was Friday but for the second year in a row, I didn't go. Tends to be the same all the time, with nothing much handmade. Hope you have a great week. Tammy

Hi Angela,

What a lovely Christmas Fair and would be a wonderful place to buy gifts. Your table looks lovely.
I watched Kirsty's Homemade Christmas last year and loved the show, look forward to seeing the special.

Happy week

One of my favourite places too, though it is a long time since I did a patchwork course there.
