exhausting doesn't begin to describe this past weekend, but my goodness, what an incredible experience!
this last weekend was the thames festival - a traditional, free celebration hosted by the mayor of london to bring summer (yes, really, there was summer) to a close in the uk. this year was the first year that the craft trail participated, and judging by the massive response, it was a great success - and i cannot tell you how proud i am to have been a part - even if the weather was a little rubbish at times.
the craft trail bit was organised by my very talented friend Sanna of Sannapanda - myself and Maya (you know, the owner of the best little wool shop in london - Knit with Attitude) shared a stall and here are some of the pics.
i must tell you that Maya has the most incredible yarn - sourced from all over the world, but my favourite had to be the norwegian alpaca - absolutely sumptuous and gorgeous (am actually going to treat myself to a decent alpaca scarf this winter).
|we had some stylish visitors to our little stall - including this beauty who happens to be for sale (may just have to treat myself)|
saturday was tango all day - lucky for us we were right next to the tango stage, so not only was there incredible music all day, but it was just so divine to see people just randomly start dancing around the area - loved it!
now you can't tell me that's not a great view for a craft festival.
see y'all next year.
