Arnside/Silverdale AONB Local Food and Produce Festival 2016

OOPS,I set up a nice display of wool at The Silverdale Hotel as my contribution to this event.Its a lovely venue you can see the sheep in the fields next to the hotel and also have a great view of magnificent Morecambe Bay and the wool looks great.So why the OOPS? I forgot to take a picture!!
 
 
Very quickly took this picture before dismantling the display.It looked much better in real life on a window seat in the panelled entrance hall at the Silverdale Hotel.Many thanks to Caroline and everyone at the hotel for the loan of space and their interest!

Exporting to Australia!

This was really nice! Drinking tea in the kitchen with my brother on Sunday morning when he spotted 2 people at the front door and headed off  grumbling that they would be trying to sell something! However he then shouted 'lady here come all the way from Australia to buy some wool!' She hadn't really but they were from Australia,over here for 6 weeks and she wanted to buy some real wool from real sheep in each of the areas they visited and I was happy to sell her some! Don't know how she found me andI was too gobsmacked to ask and I also suppose thats why I didn't think to take a picture. She has promised to send an image of whatever she decides to make and that will be nice too!
