Off to The South of England Agricultural Show

Here she is then, off on her big trip. My first attempt at needle felting, Lizzie Shrimpton, has been labelled up, just like an evacuee, wrapped in acid-free tissue and is winging her way to the South of England Showground.

Lizzie will be on display there at the East Sussex Weavers, Spinners and Dyers Guild marquee, or Duckers and Divers as the Mister calls us. She will be there all three days. I will be with her on Friday 6th.

Hopefully she will encourage others to have a go at making something they would like.

You probably know dear reader that I am crazy keen on wool, in all its sustainable gorgeousness. Lizzie has been fashioned from wool tops and recycled vintage fabric. I particularly like her madame Pompadour hair, which has been hand dyed. So much nicer in the flesh so to speak.

The event is on 5th-7th June at the Ardingly showground. Be there or be square.

A warm welcome to my latest Google connect friend Sue who blogs here.
