I know that you will understand........

The craft fair is now over and it has been a wonderful experience. I have learnt so much and met some wonderful people. The other exhibitors are so lovely and full of great tips and happy to share information. Some bloggers stopped by to say Hi - Here are Lisa & Jane. We didn't get to chat very much as it was flat out when they popped by. We will catch up at the next Gathering I am sure.

Jo and I had a lovely time and had lots of laughs........

Throughout the middle of it all we had my mum's 60th birthday party - I took this photo of Maddie at the party and thought that I would show you how much she has grown. Do you remember when she was born last march 8 weeks early and was so tiny? Well I have further news - She is going to get a younger sibling in February - Yes I am going to be a grandmother again.



Now for the part that I just know you will understand...... Whilst wondering around the fair on Sunday afternoon I was beckoned over by this young fellow who whispered in my ear and asked to come home with me - How could I resist that gorgeous German Mohair bi-coloured body, sweet cotton tail and the pinkest little nose? No to mention the cuddliest little body around....... I of course said yes and whisked him off home to come and live with me - Meet Bugsy beautifully handmade by Judy of Brentwood Bears. You understand why I had to have him don't you??

Great photo of you and Jo, Fee. Goodness Maddie has sprouted thats for real and there is absolutely no way you could leave Bugsy sitting anywhere but in your home, he is gorgeous.

Of course we understand Fiona, it would have been hard for anyone to resist such a cutie. Glad the fair was a success.

Jo in TAS said...

It was great spending time with you Fee, I enjoyed myself! Bugsy was destined for your place, he's so snuggly! Maddie is looking like a real cutie, can't believe there's another on the way seems like only yesterday when Maddie arrived! Congrats to all!!

Looks like you had a fabulous time at the fair - so sorry I couldn't make it again this year but hopefully you loved it enough to book a stall for 2011!! And congrats on the news of becoming a grandma again (and for becoming the proud new owner of a very cute cuddly looking bunny)!

Allie said...

I'm so glad it went well, Fiona! Little Maddie is so precious, oh those eyes - and congratulations that you're going to be a grandma again!!!
And of COURSE I totally understand why that littel bunny had to come home with you. How sweet!

Maria said...

So pleased all went well for you.

How lovely for Maddie to get a little brother or sister and another grandchild for you to spoil.

Oh your bunny is sooooooo cute. Of course you ccould not leave him there.

Maddie looks goergous and I agree the bunny had to come home with you, and congratulations on your soon to be new family member

Janice said...

Of course I understand. Bugsy will be such a lovely reminder of your first big successful show. Very special. I'm glad all went well.

Delcie Wardrop said...

Sounds like a fabulous time was had by all and you got to catch up with people even if only for a few moments. Bubsy looks beautiful and will be a lovely reminder and maybe a mascot for future shows. Would have loved to get some fat quarters at that price!
