On snow...

We had an awful lot of snow in my neck of the woods on Monday, and much of it is still with us, though not much of the pretty stuff. Now more like packed ice, pinkish-brown slush and lethal black ice. I went for a walk in the winter wonderland earlier in the week, and it was wonderful to see many children out making snowballs and snowmen.

I love the road-cone hat!

Made in Bristol Gift Fair

What a pleasant day it was! Well-organised, impressive surroundings in the new Foyer at Colston Hall, and as always a pleasure to meet new exhibitors. I had a pitch near a window which gave me a good view of much of the foyer.

My stand and some of my new bunting on display..........

Thank you every one who came to see us!
