LBT Festive Fayre

I've spent today selling my wares at the Lawrence Batley Theatre's Festive Fayre. I've done so well I'm going to have to work very hard to make some more stock for another fair next weekend! I've met some lovely people today, had a good old natter with the WI ladies (not what you think of when someone says Women's Institute!) and, best of all, finally got the hang of crochet! I cannae believe it, it's a miracle! Thank you to everyone who came along to support me, I have such good friends and family! Love, Truly Scrumpy x

Masters of Lace

I have just returned from a flying trip to Brugge, Belgium as my birthday treat from the wonderful man in my life.

They is shop after shop of intricately crafted lace pieces: antique lace fans, umbrellas, collars, doilies, scent sachets and napkins galore.

This has inspired me to look at other things you can do with lace...
