Patchings

We’re all set up for the opening of the Patchings Art Festival! Bit of a disaster though, some of the chess pieces were a bit squidgy so I decided to pull it from display. Instead I will clean it all up and have it for me 🙂 Turns out we didn’t have room for it anyway!

If you fancy coming down, the festival is open from 10am to 5pm Thursday, Friday and Saturday, and 10am to 4.30pm on Sunday at Patchings Farm Art Centre near Calverton in Nottinghamshire with lots of art and painting demonstrations every day.

Don’t know why this post didn’t go live when I typed it, but we’ve done a day of the show now! Problem is I went out last night to buy a pizza as we were all craving it and Pizza Hut won’t deliver to our post code. On the way home, by clutch broke and I was stuck in the middle of the sliproad off the A46 dual carriageway. Classy. So I rang the police as I was a stranded vehicle. Whilst on the phone, a riot van happened to pass and EIGHT (at the time I said 6, but I think there were 8 now thinking back) policepeople jumped out and pushed me off the road and stopped the traffic temporarily. It was amazing, and I was still giving my number plate and address to the police call centre at the time! Alex manage to roar my car home very slowly, but there is no way we can do the 40 mile round trip to get back to the stand in it. I’m hoping that as soo as the garages open at 8 I can get it booked in, but I reckon probably not til after the weekend 😦 Looks like I’m going to have to get insured on Alex’s car and he will be relegated to using the motorbike!

Soooo…. thank you to Tickly Spider my heroes for answering my distress text last night and picking me and my sister up this morning to take us there and getting us out of a sticky situation!

Wahoo! Last day of NaBloPoMo!

This is it, my last compulsory post, I have successfully blogged every day of November and completed NaBloPoMo! I will still be blogging, but it will be more meaningful, and on a less frequent basis, back to 2-3 post a week I think!

I’m feeling poorly and miserable, but the craft fair today really cheered me up. Got lots of positive feedback and ideas from customers and stallholders alike, and it was generally one of the most positive fairs I have ever been to. I was told a scary ghost story about a woman who stands at the top of the stairs and tells a story. I was directly at the bottom of said stairs, so I made sure I was packed up and gone before any chance of that happened! I now have a few bits and bobs to remake for selling online. Here’s a picture of my stand, including my new display board I showed you the other day!

I am taking part in NaBloPoMo (National Blog Post Month), so I will be blogging every day in November. Today is post 30 (last one!): http://www.nablopomo.com/
