SO pleased I'm sharing the stand with a friend - definitely takes the pressure off, and we'll have a laugh, whatever happens. There's also a bit of me that's looking forward to escaping for two days...is that bad? I'd kind of hoped my husband was going to have a full-on home alone with the kids experience, but they're all away on sleepovers! Sod's law, hey?
The main reason for the jingling nerves is the Malvern Autumn show is in a different league from anything I've done before - it's an all singing, all dancing proper 2 day County fair, and it's vast! Gardening, fair rides, food, cookery demos, cars, animals, flower arranging, and monster vegetables. Thousands of people go, but not necessarily to buy crafty things if you know what I mean, so it'll be interesting to see how it pans out. We're in the Vintage Pavillion, which is a rather chi-chi way of saying a big old tent, but apparently there'll also be a band playing and a bit of tea dancing and jiving going on, which sounds fun.
So I've got halfway down a page without mentioning my stuff….this time I thought it'd be a good idea to pep up my Jumble Betty display. A friend of my husband's very kindly made me a tiered stand, and I covered cardboard JB letters with all sorts: paper, fabric, napkins, yarn. I've got to say, this took A LOT longer than I was expecting, especially the knitted T. Which is why there's only one.
I've a few vintage bits and bobs I've picked up as well, so it truly is going to be a right old jumble!
