'I do believe that we are three very lucky blokes!
Not only do we get first dibs at all these vintage textile treasures, we also get to
sit and discuss with like minded blokes, the merits of buying vintage and how we just lurrrve it all in our homes'
'I mean, take Hen's stunning cushions!
It must be fabulous for Andy to be surrounded in these, day in, day out!
He is one very lucky, lucky man!'
'And as for yer Washer lady, Jack, she must be a delight to be with, as you get to so many fabulous fairs!
I am soooo jealous!'
'I dunno Ter, you must lead a pretty colourful life with Sal.
I hear she's working on those vintage fabric quilted patchwork Devon Pasty Covers, as we speak!!
'Actually, I got in quite a tizz earlier when I was faced with a dilemna!'
Which way to go?!'
I felt a right Dorothy as I stood with my finger in my mouth , deliberating !
'I chose right...
Scrummy or what?
Set me up well for my vintage textile hunting!'
'Do you know what?'
'I haven't enjoyed myself like this in ages!'
'Which reminds me...I have to go and help Michele and Jayne with some washing up soonish...
I have me 'Marigolds' with me!
Some new tea towels might help me complete the job with a smile!
I'll raid that Shabby Chick's stall! She always has a lot of very tasty bits and pieces!'
'I'd really like a new Eiderdown for our bed so I think I'll pay Donna Flower a little visit too.
I'm having a bit of a 'Paisley love fest' right now !'
'And she has some gorgeous dresses, not that I'm into dresses, lads but it's
always nice to see what's in fashion!'
(That's his excuse ;-)
'Lads, I have something to tell you...
My news is that I have decided to learn to crochet!'
' Way hay...Does Viv know?'
I wasn't going to say anything but I think you two can keep a secret!
'I've seen the most stunning wool! Right here! I've not been this excited in ages!
And when I get really good at all this crafting lark, I'm going to try and make some dolls.
But they won't be anywhere nears as good as these, on Woobarb's stall!
'There are some incredibly talented people around, lads...just look at these from
Woo...I've discovered that she has a fab blog:
I am always up for a bit of blogging too, aren't you, lads?'
'Well, I'm very envious as my crochet talent is as rare as ...
'And let's face it...your lovely woman, Viv, always likes to look her best for you!
My Sal does that too...have lippy will travel!!
'Why, thanks Ter!'
'Right, I have a couple of stalls to revisit now...
Tamsin's cushions caught my eye...as did...
Katies Textile Treasures.
There's nothing like a bit of treasure seeking, is there lads?'
Well that's it lads...times nearly up!
It's been super to catch up and have a...
Man to man, of course!
'Same time, similar place..
'Sounds like a plan, Ter!'
I now have it on good authority that the discussion was in fact of a different nature...
Apparently, they were planning their great escape from the fair!!
